UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Chase Kelly, a United States Navy veteran and graduating senior in the College of Information Sciences and Technology (IST), thought attending Penn State World Campus meant that although he’d have the flexibility of an online education, he’d be missing out on the social interactions of a resident program. But as he approached his graduation, he says he got the best of both worlds.
“No one I know who went to another online school has anything to say about the student experience,” he said. “[I do], when I talk about all I’ve done and the family that is Penn State.”
