The Daily Brief

Kutztown Students at Capitol

Students from all 14 Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education (PASSHE) universities met with legislators last week to talk about their college experiences and how important the education they are receiving is to them, to their families and to the future of the Commonwealth. The visits to the capitol have become an annual event in an effort to garner continued support for higher education as in investment in the state's economic future.
