The Penn State Mont Alto English Program offers students a close-knit community, rich with opportunities to interact with other English students and with the larger campus community.
Some of the opportunities available to English Majors are:
International English Honor Society

- Rank in the top 35% of his/her class
Active Membership is open to all students who meet the requirements.
The Fourth Wall ~ Penn State Mont Alto's Student-run Newspaper
Students gain valuable experience and add the their resumes by writing and working on The Fourth Wall, a student-run, student-written, student-edited, and student-published periodical.
Students working on The Fourth Wall may also earn credit by enrolling in ENGL 110, a 1-credit newswriting practicum offered through the English program.
The Penn State Mont Alto community includes an English Club available to all students attending the Mont Alto campus.
The English Club hosts trips, stages on campus events, and provides an outlet for all students interested in English.
