Edinboro University of Pennsylvania was founded as a private teachers’ training school in 1857 by the region’s original Scottish settlers, who named the town and the school after Scotland’s capital city. More than 150 years later, student living and Scottish tradition both thrive at the institution, and in 2011 Edinboro University became the first school in the world to offer a music education degree with a focus in bagpiping. Beyond this unique culture, the school attracts students with its serene setting in a town of fewer than 7,000 residents, nestled along Edinboro Lake. The institution has become one of the 14 state universities in Pennsylvania, and now enrolls more than 8,000 students, who find student housing near the campus and the school’s two learning centers.
