I really like Penn State a lot. It was always one of my top-choice schools growing up, so it's no wonder that I ended up here. Since being here, I have made very close friends and have participated in many extra curricular activities. Overall, I've had a great freshman experience here at University Park.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's very welcoming. It was very hard for me to find friends here because it's such a large school. They have very many community engagement opportunities for the students. Has great educational programs and tutors to help you succeed in your studies. They also have safe places for people of diversity to hang out and feel like they belong as well. I believe this school will create many great job opportunities for me in the future.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Pennsylvania State University Main Campus is a unique university with a lot to offer. It is located in Central Pennsylvania sandwiched by two state forests: Rothrock and Bald Eagle State Forests. If you aren’t the outdoorsy type, no worries, it is located between the two biggest cities in Pennsylvania, and just a few hours from New York City. The campus itself is just beautiful. Everything from the historic buildings, the stadiums, the flowers, and the trees will blow you away. Penn State makes sure that the campus looks like somewhere you want to stay forever. If you are incoming or current student, the on-campus housing provides a unique experience. There are traditional and renovated options, and all of them come with the to die for meal plan. I mean talk about a dining all with endless options that are actually healthy. There’s no doubt that you’ll find some irresistible sweets in there like Penn State famous creamery ice-cream, but in healthy portions you’ll be well off. Moreover, the academics are above and beyond, but not in a cliché way. The classes you are going to take will not only teach you what you need to know for your future profession, they will also teach life long skills. The professors that teach these courses have an abundant amount of experience and are readily available through office hours. Many people believe that with a big school like this that getting help from a professor is not manageable. Think otherwise because these professors will make the time for you, and are more than happy to talk to you. In addition, there are plenty of things for you to do outside of school work. Penn State offers over 1,000 clubs that are academic based, sports based, language based, culturally based, and interest based. Every single club will offer you amazing friends and give you unforgettable memories. Lastly, but not least, Penn State is situated in a small town that offers all of your favorite things. There are local restaurants, restaurant chains, shops, bars, stores, and more situated right next to campus. There are so many things to like about this campus, but the best thing Penn State offers is a sense of belonging.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I believe Penn State is a diverse community. Everyone finds their place and makes the big campus so much smaller. There is a spot for everyone. You can find any club you’re looking for and even if there isn’t one you will be able to start one so easily. The professors are easy to access even with so many students. The TA’s are super helpful. Housing and food are the best. I never get tired of the food and there are so many different options. They have kosher free food and any option to meet your dietary needs. Our school spirit plays a big role in the community and we all are proud to be in one happy community.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Huge campus, and lots of students, but it also means there's something for everyone. There's lots of active clubs and philanthropy, career resources, and events. Even academic clubs are very active. I think going to a large state school helped me to be well-rounded in education, career, social life.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Penn State offers a well-rounded balance of academics and activities that gives college students the best experience to prepare them for the real world. With strong professors and networking, students push themselves in and out of the classroom. The college stresses the importance of experience and leadership providing a positive environment and community. I can't wait to see what's in store in the upcoming years in happy valley

What is your overall opinion of this school?

As an incoming freshman, the thought of attending such a well known, and fairly large, university was a little intimidating. However, once you step foot on campus it immediately feels like a tight knit community. There is always something to do, whether its sports or catching a show at the School of Music! There are so many opportunities are yours for the taking here at PSU; this school will be a great fit for anyone.
