As a current high school early admit student, I thoroughly enjoy the classes and find the professors reply to emails so much faster than I thought. there seems to be a lot of flexibility throughout the classes and that is something I enjoy. I have been on the campus and ate on the campus, as well as my mom being an alumnus. I have seen the dorm rooms- while I have not stayed in one- and think they are okay. Further, there is a wide variety of both online and on-campus classes to take.
I love it!!! I went there to see its very small class sizes and also a very small campus everything you need is their Walmart is a 8 mins walk and the closes gas station in 3 mins and a lot of hills and mountains. I will recommend getting a hotel to stay for the night because nighttime driving if you don't know the area is terrifying
Personally, I wasn't as wel- prepared for college as I probably should have been when I got to CalU, but the environment there and the people around me, especially the professors, have helped me to get better at making sure I know how to do everything I need to in order to achieve my goals of getting a college degree. I'm very happy with the college and I have learned a lot in my major since coming there in 2015, and I would definitely recommend it to anyone else who is considering it as one of their options when looking for a college to go to.
I believe that academically it's a really nice school. However the neighborhood is really boring, there are not a lot of events on campus and the students have no school spirit. If there were more on campus events and activities, the school could definitely be a lot more fun.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for California University of Pennsylvania is 96%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
I would tell myself that college isn't as scary as you thought it would be. The professors don't want to see you fail and will help guide you to the right path in being successful. There are plenty of other people who want to help you succeed and will tutor you to do just that. I would tell myself that you can even apply for a mentor. My menor was extremely helpful when I was a freshman. I would also tell myself to join clubs/organizations early on and to stick with them. It is a wonderful way to get experience and a great way to meet new friends with similiar interests.
The campus feels empty sometimes
It's a small, close-knit community.
People should attend this school if they never intended on leaving high school.
I like that the entire campus is located together instead of being spread out through a city or town. Everything is in one place and you can easily access it all.
I am awesome.
If you do not like to read, or cannot bring yourself to read at least one chapter a week then you may want to rethink applying to this school. Also if you aer not a very socially inclined person and not interested in branching out then you may not want to come here.
I wish I would of known that no one stays here on the weekends. Its gets lonely and very boring a lot of the time. The campus doesnt provide many activities for students so were kind of on our own for fun.
Many of the classmates only did enough work to get by but I believe they should have worked harder and studied more often.
sports. sports managent.
That for communters there is not enough parking, and the parking fills up quickly in the morning so if you have an afternoon class you will not find a parking spot.
I love to brag to my friends about our newly built campus, soon to come parking garage, and comfortable suites. I always tell people who are in search of a school home that our campus has much of an "at home" feel to it. I love to brag about how friendly everyone on campus is; You will never feel lost at a place like Cal. When my friends come to visit, I'm proud to bring them to my dorm because it is newly remodeled and even has its own bathroom! Oh, and I cannot forget our lovely football team!
Cal U is a small school but I love it! There are so many professors here that are really passionate about what they are teaching about. I can't forget about all of the great people I have met here and I definitely made a lot of lasting friendships.
