 Points of Pride

Lock Haven has a $40 million state-of-the-art science facility that opened in 2013.

​Students pursuing Health and P.E. will earn certification to teach both health and physical education. Most institutions only offer one or the other.

Students majoring in Health Science who take Advanced Anatomy will learn anatomy in a very hands-on way by exploring human cadavers in the LHU cadaver lab.

​Our Business and Accounting programs are so closely aligned that students can earn a B.S. in both areas by taking a few extra courses.​
