PennWest Clarion — Venango Student Life


PennWest Clarion — Venango is a close-knit community where students feel secure. In a very short period of time, you'll know everyone's name and they'll know yours. You may find yourself trying things you never did before, taking a leadership position in a club or organization, making friends with people who are different from you, and learning that you can do far more than you ever thought you could.

Students who choose to live on campus enjoy new student apartment housing. The apartments are fully furnished and include a kitchen, laundry facilities, four bedrooms, and living room/dining area.

seedclub_at_liaoutreachThe campus promotes student learning and development by providing high quality programs and services that enhance the educational experience and prepare students to be contributing members of the local community and global society.

We envision a community where all students are encouraged to explore their hopes and dreams and to achieve their full potential through participation in collaborative, innovative, and outcome-oriented programs and services exemplifying best practices and positive community partnerships.
