Before You Visit – Spotted Lanternfly Quarantine Compliance
To stop the spread of spotted lanternfly (SLF), the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture issued a quarantine for counties where SLF has been confirmed. Please visit the Penn State Extension’s Spotted Lanternfly page to learn how to travel without spreading this invasive insect.
See it in 360º
Welcome to our studios and spaces! Each of these 360º views is a portal of sorts into the learning, performance, and fabrication spaces of our college.
You can click-and-drag to control the view in the frame, and there are embedded ‘links’ within the viewer that enable you to move among physical locations. By clicking the arrow icon at the footer of the viewer window, you can access the tour navigation menu, including the full screen (and you really should check these out full screen).
School of Music
Stuckeman School Shops + Studios (Architecture + Landscape Architecture)
Graphic Design Studios
School of Visual Arts
Theatre Performance Classrooms + Stages
Theatre Technical + Shop Spaces
And there’s more…
We have far more facilities than we do 360º tours, so we encourage you to look around the many places where you will create, compose, perform, research, laugh and learn at A&A
