What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, the Pennsylvania State Univerisity is an excellent university for academics and networking. However, at times academics get overshadowed by sports and students who are non-athletes do not get as much respect or privileges. As well as, subtle incidents of discrimination hinders the university from maximizing its potential to make a positive experience for all students. However, overall students who attend Penn State are in for great opportunities that will make your time here fantastic, and life after Penn State magnificent.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

From the outside, it seems like all party and play. On the inside, there is so much academic and career opportunity! You'll get to learn about cultures from all over the world just by saying hello to a new face in the HUB. All facilities are amazing - library, classrooms, gyms, performance halls, ect. - and most all the administration really cares about your success. Don't be scared away by the large campus and stereotypical 'college-scene' posts. Penn State is a great institution to be at for many reasons. oh yea...WE ARE.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have wanted to go to Penn State Main Campus since I was a little girl, and every time I visit I feel more and more at home. The information they give visitors is extremely thorough and I believe I am ready to spend the next four years at this institution.

In my opinion I believe that Penn state is one of the few very well managed colleges who put education and student life first. In my college search it has took my attention from the competitors and I can not wait to attend Penn state main campus fall 2019.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Penn State is a very diverse campus. I love how comfortable everyone is with all these different cultures. The classes are intimidating. The campus is huge but the busing system helps. I had trouble finding classes and getting a routine developed. There is a lot of opportunities here.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Growing up, Penn State was my dream school and the four years I spent there made that dream come true. From the renowned and published professors, to the White Out in Beaver Stadium on Saturday's, there is nothing that Penn State doesn't have to offer. Want to life on campus all 4 years? You can. Want to live in a high rise with floor to ceiling glass windows? You can. Want to live in a historic house downtown sharing a room like real college? You can. From intramural to varsity sports, we have it all. Want to win Nationals in a Quidditch tournament? They've done that. Want to join a sorority or fraternity and raise money to fight pediatric cancer? Easy. Have a want to perform on stage? Join a club like the Thespians or get the same degree on the same campus as Keegan Michael Key? Look no further. Hungry for tacos? We've got the best downtown. Want to stick to Chipotle and McDonald's? Done. Want to listen to a jukebox in a 50's diner? You can, I worked there. Think the Creamery is overrated? Don't worry, State College has the best ice cream and made on the farm milk at Meyer Dairy. There's nothing you can't find at Penn State.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have an overall favorable opinion of the campus. The atmosphere inside and outside of the classroom is friendly and conducive to learning. It is a large campus, but there are niche communities that have something for everyone. There are a variety of fun activities to help students de-stress and relax in between classes and on weekends. My specific major requires that I put in a lot of work, so I don't get the chance to experience everything the campus has to offer. However, when I am not working I find numerous ways to enjoy myself with the company of others or by myself.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love everything about Penn State. State College is the perfect size for someone from a small town, like me, who’s just transitioning to a bigger place. The facilities and faculty at Penn State main are quite literally some of the best in the world. Penn State is like a family; a giant, brilliant, fantastic family. We are!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Pennsylvania state university is a GREAT school. The campus is huge and diverse, so it won’t be hard to find the group for you once you get involved on campus. It has plenty of opportunities for you if you go out and look for them. Plenty of professors who are willing to help and the students are super nice and friendly. I found my friends towards the middle of the semester and they are wonderful. Dining on campus is great, such as Pollock commons for breakfast! The only downside of dining is some places close super early (such as chick fil a). When using your points for food, be smart when using them because they can run out super-fast (learned my lesson)! The dorms are okay; some are really old can should be renovated. There are so many clubs on campus to choose from, you can almost find anything of your interest. When I got to campus, I joined a dance team and I LOVE IT! The girls are so nice and became my closest friends at school. The students at school are willing to help you as well. The campus size is very big, so when it gets warm, you see a lot of students on bikes. Penn State also has busses to get you wherever you need to go on campus. The town Is very nice, it’s like a mini city. A cool thing about it is they have Uber’s and Lyft’s. Overall, the school is great and students show a lot of school spirit.
