State College Main Campus
Our State College business school began as the South Hills Secretarial School in 1970 in a modest location on Allen Street. Growth forced the school to move to larger quarters in Boalsburg, PA. in August 1982, and it was renamed South Hills Business School to reflect its evolving program offerings. In January 1989, South Hills returned to its original home in a custom-built facility on 480 Waupelani Drive, where it remains to this day as the South Hills School of Business & Technology. We currently offer eleven Associate degree programs and three Diploma programs, giving students options for quality post-secondary education in business, technology and healthcare.

The sculpture "Welcoming Myself" was given to South Hills on May 10, 1989 by the RNR Construction Company, Inc. of State College.
The artist, Lisa M. Fedon of Pen Argyle, PA, was commissioned to create a major public work of art that would represent the philosophy of the emergence of self through education.
The resulting installation is comprised of three ¾-inch steel figures of negative space that decrease in size until they reach the school building, where a single nine-foot "shadow" crafted of wire cloth emerges ready to take on the future.
South Hills Loves Music
In 2011, Gina Mazza, daughter of the school's founders and then-Vice President of the school, gave the Graphic Arts (GA) Class of 2012 an opportunity to be part of the creation of a mural for the back of the Tom Mazza Bandshell on the North Lawn of the campus. Luciano Sormani of Bellefonte, PA, volunteered and became the one student who tackled the entire project on his own.
After 6 weeks of work, the 4-panel mural "South Hills Loves Music" was dedicated on September 4, 2011. The artist, who later went on to spend five years at South Hills as a GA Instructor, drew inspiration for the Trompe-l'œil mural from the music performed in the bandshell, the Pennsylvania landscape, the rocks that frame the North Lawn, the school's clock tower, and a hot air balloon that is frequently seen overhead in State College.
