Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education (PASSHE) Counselor Information Day

Register for PASSHE Counselor Information Day

On Friday, April 22, 2022 at 8:30am, SRU will be hosting PASSHE Counselor Information Day. This is a wonderful opportunity for school counselors to connect with admission representatives from the PASSHE schools.

During this event, school counselors will be able to discuss hot topics in higher education with admissions deans and directors, student success staff, and athletics. School counselors will also get to hear from the state system Chancellor, dine with us, and have the option to tour two of SRU’s newly renovated facilities or take a tour of a residence hall!

Local accommodations: The Fairfield Inn and Suites in Slippery Rock is the closest to campus.

Questions? Email Amanda Crow, Associate Director of Admissions.
