Keystone is a good school. It's a small school. The Student Activities Center are always having events going on. But the school is in the "middle of nowhere" so if you want to get off campus you DEFINITELY need a car or a friend with a car, because the shuttle suck.
When I first applied to Keystone College, I did it as a shot in the dark. I didn't think I would get accepted because of how low my GPA was. I made a few mistakes in high school that led to me having to transfer schools and do Junior & Senior classes all in one year to graduate on time. After I got out of high school, no school would accept me due to either my GPA, or past mistakes I made. Keystone College accepted me because of my mistakes. They believe in us as students, athletes, and as people. They care about our parents, our lifestyle and our feelings. You feel a personal connection here with everyone on campus. The admissions office calls & emails you reassuring you that they'll do everything they can to give you an opportunity. Coming here was the best decision I've made in my life.
I have visited Keystone College twice so far, first with my mother and younger siblings and accepting enrollment on my 2nd visit with my mother and father. I am planning on visiting again this Friday to meet my new wrestling coach and teammates. We were all so impressed with the quaintness and tight knit community of the school, that both of my younger siblings are already saying that they want to attend Keystone College someday!
Everyone is extremely nice. Campus isn’t too big so classes are easy to find and easy to get to in a short period of time. It’s nice to be able to hangout and some people go home on weekends which makes it more fun when the dorm rooms are less full and you can just have fun with your friends.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Keystone College is 97%. 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 _____.
Choose a college that you or your child wants to go to, not what they can afford to settle for. I had to settle with an affordable school and I regret it. However I made the most of my college career by making friends for life and learning as much as i possibly can!
Outgoing, liberal and diverse. This campus is friendly to gay, lesbian and transgender indivduals as well as a limited but present cultural diversity. I am lucky enough to have friends from everywhere on campus and can say that each individual brings something new and amazing to the campus. There is a lot of partying that goes on, but you only get to see it if you are interested in it, since this is a dry campus. Here, the atmosphere is what you make it. If you can balance schoolwork and social life, you got it made.
My opinion of this school is great. The campus is small, so it doesn't take a half an hour to get from one classroom to another. Also students know each other and are helpful when you need them. The school is very unique too because there are a lot of aspects that other schools don't have like hiking trails, a creek, Victorian style houses used as residence halls and offices, and a rich history based on helping the community. I really love Keystone and what it has to offer. The only thing I wish was different was the surronding town. I wished there were more stores and restaraunts nearby. There are a few in walking distance that are fun, but if we want a change we normally drive the short distance into Clarks Summit or Dickson City.
The academics here are probably in the top three best things about Keystone. Since the classes are small (mine are normally seven to ten people), the teacher knows me and my learning style. We learn as a group instead of as individuals. It is really helpful when you need extra help or everybody doesn't understand something. Since it is a small group we can discuss a topic with a teacher so that we understand or we can ask the teacher to adpat the way the lessons are being taught. If something can't be done within the class, the teachers are more than willing to meet with anyone outside of class time. This has made it easier to understand material and ask for help when needed. It is kind of like a mini-family in each class where everyone including the teacher helps each other and works together.
I really don't think there are stereotypes of students at Keystone. I mean I'm sure there are a few out there, but none that I am familiar with. Keystone is very diverse and has students of all differences.
Probably the most popular activities on campus are playing on a sports team and DJ Bingo. They are two very different but both very popular activities. Sports teams are popular because they help you make friends while you get to do something you love. Dj Bingo is fun because you get to play bingo, eat free food, and win cash prizes while listening to a dj play awesome music. You should check out both campus activities if you get the chance.
The worst thing about my school would have to be the security. In each dorm there is only one video camera at the main enterance. This semester I was charged over 20 dollars in damages of school property because the could not identify the person/s that were responsible. If the security was better everyone would not have to pay these charges.
Small tight-knit community in a rural area.
Anyone who wants to get a degree in a field they are passionate about and be assured a job once graduated.
Coming from a big school, I did not like, Keystone fits me perfectly. I love this school. Playing on the men's soccer team, intermural sports, my major, the people and professors in my major, and the campus, all make this school great for me.
The kind of person that should not attend this school is one that is not willing to work for their grades. Keystone college's art program is outstanding and you are expected to deliver, work hard, and excelle. If you are not there to learn and work, then I don't suggest this school for you. Besides acidemics if you are not an out-doors type of person and perfer the city, I don't suggest keystone for you.
I wish I was more prepared for the amount of work that I was doing inside the classes and outside. I feel like my high school did not prepare me anough for it, but I dont mind the work load here because I enjoy what I am doing.
As an art education student, I can freely brag about my campus as one of the bestin this field. Students who go here for this degree come out of here with a reputation for being amoung the best.
I really like the community feel and how nice students and faculty are to one another. I also really like the openness of the campus and how woodsey it feels.
Its beautiful seanery and friendly staff. The classes are smaal enough that the professors can extend individual attention to students who are having difficulties with any part of the material. Also, we have the best Cross-Country team in North-east Pennsylvania.
I had not heard much at all about Keystone before I came here, but since coming I haven't heard of a strereotype, I couldn't immediately laugh off a being rediculous.
My classes are small and fun.
Its very easy to meet people here on campus, and its hard to find a person that you or one of your close friends know nothing about. However a majority of students are commuters, so some of your friends may be a few miles away on weekends.
Dorms here are fairly averaged sized. I've been in much smaller at other schools. Also the furniture is all able to be rearranged and the beds can be easily bunked. Its all about creativity with your furniture and you can make a surprising amount of room. I live comfortably in mine.
We're NCAA DIII sports, competing in the CSAC. Our nickname is the Giants and our colors are navy and orange. We have several fairly good teams here, including our baseball team that made the College World Series last year.
