Interim Director of Admissions
Lock Haven University is a special place. It offers everything you would expect a college to offer: excellent academic programs, qualified professors, and an abundance of social activities. The Haven, though, isn't just any other college. Here at LHU, we pride ourselves in the relationships that students develop with their peers and their professors. We offer cultural learning opportunities both on campus and abroad. We guide our students from the moment they first inquire to the day they cross the stage at graduation. And, we do it all at an affordable cost.
I spent five years studying at The Haven where I earned a Bachelor of Science degree (B.S. Ed.) in Elementary Education and a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree in Spanish. During my time as a student, I was able to participate in some of the many clubs and organizations that LHU has to offer and even spent a semester studying abroad! During the fall semester of 1993, I had an opportunity to study at La Universidad de las Americas (UDLA) in Puebla, Mexico. LHU boasts one of the best study abroad programs in the country, offering 34 programs on 6 continents. Whether you are interested in learning a foreign language or simply want to experience a different culture, Lock Haven University has a program for you.
I am originally from Elk County, Pennsylvania where I attended Ridgway Area High School (go Elkers!). With a student population of 4,700, Lock Haven University was an easy transition for me. Most of the classrooms here can only hold 45 students and that felt comfortable to me. Professors were accessible, the campus was beautiful and the community was safe. Lock Haven University had everything that I was looking for in a university.
I found what I call “the treasure between the mountains” and would love to have the opportunity to share more of it with you. Call us at the number below to set up an appointment for a campus visit or schedule one online.
I look forward to meeting you and showing you all that The Haven has to offer.
