Millersville/PM Study Buddy Program

This spring Penn Manor & Millersville University began a Study Buddy Program. Millersville students & Penn Manor families have expressed interest in continuing this program over the summer. GREAT NEWS! More families now have the opportunity to become part of the program.

While there will not be the traditional, school year academics, Millersville buddies are happy to help with specific areas of educational need.  For example: multiplication tables, spelling words, reading/writing, even telling time, are skills we can continue to work on throughout the summer.  In lieu of the academic piece during the school year, are there any additional subjects, hobbies, and/or extracurriculars that you would like the Buddies to (remotely) meet about?  For example: maybe a specific sport, type of art, music, video games, etc.

Click here to complete the form which will get you matched with a Millersville Study Buddy. Additional specifics can be found on the form.

Did you see…this program was featured in the May 20th edition of the Merchandiser/Advertiser!  The article was titled, “MU Supports PM’s Transition to Online Learning.”  Millersville students strive to share compassion and contribute to public mission while we all navigate these challenging times.
