The piano faculty at Penn State University and I are delighted to welcome you to the School of Music.
Penn State music students have the best of all possible worlds-opportunities and experiences that can only be found at a large comprehensive institution, plus a smaller, supportive environment within the School of Music. We are proud to be part of an institution that is ranked among the top-tier universities in the world. A multi-campus, public research university, Penn State offers a vast array of academic programs and unlimited opportunities.
We take pride in creating an atmosphere that fosters excellence while offering students challenging and inspirational experiences. State College is a truly ideal university setting. There are many exciting cultural events on the beautiful University Park campus, including concerts, lectures, and theatre productions. For recreation, there are hiking and biking trails throughout the forests of this serene valley. And don't forget Beaver Stadium, Bryce Jordan Center and all the excitement of Penn State's nationally ranked collegiate sports. The campus is beautiful in all seasons, and the musical, cultural, and intellectual atmosphere is fully charged. I encourage you to examine other pages of our Piano web site and visit the School of Music's web site at www.music.psu.edu.
Finally, feel free to schedule a campus visit to meet our outstanding faculty, caring staff, and talented students. We hope to be part of your future, helping you to become your best. Welcome to Penn State!
Sue Haug, Professor, Piano Faculty/Director, School of Music
