They say sometimes it’s the little things. Penn State Harrisburg’s Student Emergency Assistance Fund is designed for just that – helping students with the little things – and sometimes even the big ones – that can prevent them from graduating. Maybe it’s money for a car repair so a commuter can get to campus or for groceries to get a student through to the semester’s end.
