Weston Community Center

The White Course Apartments Community Center serves as the hub for a variety of activities, programs, and services. The center, located in the middle of the community, houses beautiful meeting and multipurpose rooms as well as White Course Apartments staff offices. You are welcome to attend events and activities offered in the Community Center and reserve space for educational and personal social events (like birthday or holiday parties and dinners). However, University functions take precedence over personal events.  

Penn State encourages persons with disabilities to participate in its programs and activities. If you anticipate needing any type of accommodation or have questions about the physical access provided, please contact the White Course Apartments staff in advance of your participation.
