STATE COLLEGE — A new Facebook page, Home in State College, is dedicated to sharing listings of homes for sale or rent in the Borough of State College. The site is tailored to professionals and others in the local workforce who may be interested in living in a borough neighborhood.

Supported by the Borough of State College, Home in State College makes the case for quality of life in borough neighborhoods that are close to the Penn State campus, downtown, schools, community centers, shopping and other amenities in the greater State College area. 

Newly sworn mayor Donald M. Hahn welcomed visitors to the page on his second day in office.

“As a Centre County native, a Penn State graduate and Borough homeowner, I know that State College is a wonderful place to grow up, to go to school and to settle down,” he wrote.

Hahn grew up in State College as the son of Korean immigrants who came to the United States to study and became naturalized American citizens, and his father became a Penn State professor.

“I am proud not only of our community’s openness to all people but also of the diversity of those who contribute to it,” he wrote.
Hahn encouraged visitors to like the Home in State College Facebook page, follow its useful posts and share them with friends.
Former mayor Elizabeth Goreham was the first to introduce Home in State College when it started up in November.

“There’s a community spirit in the borough that will embrace you,” she said. “We want as many as possible to know they can live in the borough and live well.”

Home in State College also is featured on Twitter and Instagram.

Additional information about opportunities and resources available through the Home in State College site will be presented at the Downtown State College Farmers Market from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, Jan. 19.
