We’re proud to be a part of the Crimson & White

oday we offer the thousands of Express readers in print and online our second annual Crimson & White edition in partnership with and in celebration of Lock Haven University of Pennsylvania.

This university is so much more than a collection of historic and new buildings on a hillside overlooking Lock Haven and the scenic West Branch of the Susquehanna River.

It’s home to aspiring teachers, scientists, physicians and nurses, military leaders, lawyers, athletic trainers, park managers, and yes, even Olympians.

Every year, Lock Haven welcomes young adults seeking to build a foundation for their careers … and for their lives.

And LHU is among the most affordable institutions of higher education in America, with a strong track record of attracting many first-generation college students.

That, folks, is something to be very proud of.

LHU was chartered as the Central State Normal School in 1870, and its first academic year followed in 1877-1878.

Thus, LHU has been an integral part of fullfilling the mandate of “a thorough and efficient system of public education to serve the needs of the Commonwealth” as prescibed in the Pennsylvania Constitution.

As is often said, education is an essential element of equal citizenship.

Lock Haven University is all about working to grow strong, productive citizens to help lead our communities to a better tomorrow.
