Dear Friends of Keystone College:
In the peace of the morning, as I cast my fishing line into the "Mighty Nokomis," the natural splendor and serenity of the landscape surrounds me. Virtually everyone who visits Keystone is awed by this pristine environment, and our opinions have been validated by the readers of The Abington Journal, who voted our College as the region's "Most Beautiful Campus."
We are charged with being good stewards to this magnificent campus, which means more than maintaining the grounds or taking care of buildings, each a critical task in its own right. We are also called to sustain this beautiful campus so that Keystonians in the years and decades to follow will be able to appreciate and enjoy it as we do today.
We offer you "The Keystone College Promise."

However, the signature of a great college extends far beyond a campus of buildings, academic departments, laboratories, and athletic fields. It is the people of Keystone, our faculty, staff, and students, who, together, make the Keystone Promise a reality.
For 140 years, Keystone has been dedicated to providing top-quality education to each and every student we serve. That is a promise worth making, and it is surely a promise worth keeping.
We look forward to meeting you in person and becoming the pathway to your future. Remember, wherever you're going, you can reach it from here!
