The town of Lewisburg is beautifully located in a rural area of Pennsylvania — rolling hills, green grass and trees, and fresh air. The town lies along the Susquehanna River and is very picturesque. Lewisburg is part of a greater area known as the Susquehanna Valley with many small towns and boroughs sharing the country landscape.

The campus is located within walking distance of downtown Lewisburg where quaint shops and restaurants line the main street along with a rare art deco cinema.
