Harrisburg University, Hussian College show off expanded Philadelphia campus

Harrisburg University of Science and Technology joined Hussian College and local and state officials Friday morning to unveil the new, expanded location the two schools share in downtown Philadelphia during a ribbon-cutting event. Harrisburg University at the same time announced an articulation agreement it signed with the Community College of Philadelphia.

The board of trustees from both schools - along with Harrisburg University President Dr. Eric Darr, and Hussian College President Jeremiah Staropoli - celebrated the expansion into 38,000 square feet of renovated space at 1500 Spring Garden Street. Officials from the Community College of Philadelphia also attended the event.

"Harrisburg University and Hussian college worked together now for a number of years. HU knows Philadelphia very well. Today, we have more than 300 students from Philadelphia school district enrolled," Darr said. "This space gives us the opportunity to serve students in Philadelphia better. It's all about education and the more opportunities we can provide the better. This is the first day of many, many more great days in this space."
