U.S. Senator Bob Casey Visits Scranton’s Nationally Ranked Science Labs

U.S. Senator Bob Casey Visits Scranton’s Nationally Ranked Science Labs

This fall, U.S. Senator Bob Casey visited Scranton the very same week that the University’s science labs were ranked No. 9 in the nation, according to The Princeton Review’s 2018 edition of the “Best 382 Colleges” guidebook.

Sen. Casey met with students conducting summer research projects at the Loyola Science Center, as well as participants in a Girls Who Code summer camp hosted at the University.

Scranton was one of just a dozen colleges in the nation to host a Girls Who Code day camp, which is part of a national initiative to encourage young women to pursue careers in the computer sciences.

The University also hosts a Girls Who Code club that meets on campus during the academic year.

“It was my pleasure today to meet with these impressive young women, breaking down barriers in the world of technology,” said Sen. Casey. “We have to continue to push for pay equality for women and give young people, no matter their gender, the tools they need to succeed, whether it is quality education or jobs that pay family-sustaining incomes.”
