Visiting State College
Top companies often hold corporate retreats in places that allow executives to escape the distractions of their everyday lives. Less chaotic environments serve as ideal backdrops for innovative business solutions.
Penn State’s University Park campus in State College, Pennsylvania, is that kind of place. As one of the top-ten college towns in America for being student friendly and accessible, it’s a location that frequently appeals to first-time visitors from urban centers such as New York, Los Angeles, or Beijing because of its high standards of living. In fact, State College has been ranked among the least-stressful communities in the United States by Psychology Today and as one of the nation’s most livable communities by Kiplinger’s.
The region offers excellent opportunities for hiking, biking, golfing, and other outdoor activities. Penn State features one of the nation’s top intercollegiate athletic programs with legions of enthusiastic supporters. And countless other possibilities for activities abound here: nightlife and shopping on College Avenue, live theater performances and concerts, museums, and more.
If you want to get away, that’s easy, too. State College offers an airport with service from Delta, Northwest, United, and U.S. Airways. The town is also within 250 miles of the major urban centers of the Mid-Atlantic Region including New York City, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, and Washington, D.C.
