Since 1994, Highland Associates has been providing architectural, engineering and interior design services to Penn State University. Our 20+ year relationship has included 3, 2-year term contracts which were renewed 3 times, as well as competitive bid contracts. Over the course of our relationship, we have executed 104 projects at several campuses including:

  • Penn State Abington
  • Penn State Brandywine
  • Penn State Hazleton
  • Penn State Hershey Medical Center
  • Penn State Great Valley
  • Penn State Main Campus
  • Penn State Reading
  • Penn State Schuylkill

Penn State prides itself on being a student-centered University and at the Scranton Campus, the administration was able to develop a new 3,500 square foot Student Success Center in the campus’ Study Learning Center.

The Student Success Center houses all key student programs and
services in an integrated and inclusive area specifically designed to
provide students with direct and convenient access to those services
and the professionals providing them. The center’s design will also
facilitate collaboration among the providers of those services, in order
to best serve all of a student’s needs. 

Student services available in the new center include health and wellness
programs, psychological counseling, financial aid, academic tutoring, 
advising, career services, and leadership/personal development

The new space provides space for Collaborative Learning, tutoring, a
computer Lab and offices.
