"Venango Campus is much more than a college. It is a place to learn and to grow. The professors do more than just jennateach, they encourage you to strive for greatness and they help you every step of the way. Venango offers so many opportunities to get involved and become a leader on campus. If I had to choose a college all over again, I would pick Venango every time."

"I am a second year nursing student in the ASN program.  I chose Clarion University – Venango because you get a large university experience in a nice small easy to handle package. I also love that you can create connections with your professors here that at other colleges are very hard to do.  At Venango there are many resources available to help you succeed as a student, especially for the demanding programs that the campus offers such as Medical Imaging, Nursing, etc."

"I chose Clarion University - Venango because it gives me the best opportunity to create a great future for myself. I love the small campus and the close-knit environment between everyone. I really enjoy traveling and recently went to Mexico, Jamaica, and Grand Cayman Islands on a cruise."

clinton_eakin"When I decided to change direction in my career, I challenged myself to become a Registered Nurse. Clarion University – Venango's nursing program is challenging and gives me the knowledge and experience I'll need to enter the field within two years. I chose Clarion – Venango for the smaller campus, personal relationships with professors and students, and for the high-quality nursing program. I feel comfortable at the campus and appreciate the great support here. I am excited to help other adult students at Clarion – Venango."
