Philadelphia − December 8,2017 − Harrisburg University, along with Hussian College, unveiled a new, 38,000 square foot location to expand their Philadelphia campus. The expansion expands on the Philadelphia presence Harrisburg University has had for the past three years. Prior to this move, students of Harrisburg University would transfer to Harrisburg’s main campus after their first year to complete their degree. With the new facility, located at 1500 Spring Garden Street, students of both universities will be able to complete their four-year degree in Philadelphia.
State Senator Larry Farnese (D-Philadelphia) joined Harrisburg University President Dr. Eric Darr and Hussian College President Jeremiah Staropoli in welcoming the new home for the two universities. “These universities will further expand on Philadelphia’s values and goals and highlight our city’s strengths in technology innovation and excellence in the arts,” Farnese said. “This expansion would be a win-win, both for our students and for the industries these students will be pursuing careers in after college.”
Also in attendance was Dr. Samuel Hirsch, Vice President for Academic Affairs and Student Success at the Community College of Philadelphia. During the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony, an articulation agreement was announced between the schools, allowing for an easier transfer process for students between the schools.
