The Pennsylvania State University (commonly known as Penn State) is a state-related, land-grant university.
The University has 24 campuses throughout Pennsylvania, including a virtual World Campus. The enrollment at Penn State is over 84,000 students, placing it among the ten largest public universities in the United States. Penn State offers more than 160 majors and administers a $1.4 billion endowment. Although it receives funding from the state and is connected to the state through its board of trustees, it is otherwise independent and not subject to the state's direct control.
Penn State Beaver is a 100-acre campus located in the heart of rural Beaver County.

In addition, students of all ages can select from Beaver's five baccalaureate degrees in Business, Applied Psychology, Communications, Information Sciences and Technology, and Letters, Arts and Sciences. Four associate degrees are also offered, as well as a master's degree in education.
