HVC COVID-19 Update

Thank You! – Happy Valley Communications Team


– Penn State’s Student-Run Communications Agency –

Happy Valley Communications (HVC) exists to provide professional communications services to both local and national clients, while providing an outlet for students to apply what they have learned in the classroom and through internships in a real-world agency environment.

HVC was established in 2009 and has continued to grow in size and notoriety on campus since its inception. The firm continues to add new positions and departments to keep up with the ever-changing landscape of the communications industry. We value integrity, professionalism, and excellence in all of our operations.

Our staff is selected on a semester basis after a detailed application and interview process. The firm is comprised of students from multiple majors, schools, and disciplines, as we find it gives the team a well-rounded and different point-of-view.

– Services –

HVC offers client service under multiple branches. Each client experience is customized to fit their business’s needs.

For students, this offers those who excel in specific areas to test their skills in a real-world environment and allows all members to gain experience in areas they are not as familiar with.
