Pitt-Johnstown's Admissions team is taking the University's commitment-to-students message to regional high school students.

In advance of May 1, 2017, which is Commitment Day for future Mountain Cats, the Admissions team and PJ the Mountain Cat are hitting the road to recognize high school seniors who have been admitted to Pitt-Johnstown for Fall 2017.

There have been four Cambria County signing events since April 21 and, during the next two weeks, the Admissions team will meet with students at signing days that span 10 Pennsylvania counties.

The team has already met with students from across Cambria, Adams, Dauphin, Lebanon, and York counties. Students have been presented with scholarship certificates, either made the decision or cemented their decision to attend Pitt Johnstown for Fall 2017, and had their pictures taken with PJ.

Future students have until Monday, May 1, to reserve their place in the upcoming freshman class.

Future Mountain Cats may secure their spot by submitting a tuition deposit online or by calling 855-LIKE-UPJ.
