Pennsylvania Highlands Community College welcomed the Somerset County community to its new location at 315 Georgian Place with a public reception held on Thursday, January 26th.  Approximately 50 residents and business professionals attended the reception to tour the facility and learn more about the College’s continued impact on Somerset and surrounding counties.

Opening Reception at the Somerset Center

“Our growth in Somerset County is what precipitated this move,” said College President Dr. Walter Asonevich.  “There were critical elements that we felt we needed to provide our students.”  “These include improved access to technology, an additional classroom and a student lounge.” Pennsylvania Highlands has signed a five year lease for the 3868 square foot of space.  “Based on what we have seen thus far, we can and do anticipate the need for additional space in the future,” Asonevich said.

The Pennsylvania Highlands Somerset Center offers coursework in Accounting, Business Administration, Criminal Justice, Education, and General Studies.

Members of the College’s Advisory Council, which is comprised of Somerset County business, education and community leaders, assisted in finding a suitable location for the Center and continue to provide valuable input regarding the specific educational needs of the Somerset County community.
