Penn State Main clean, safe, and friendly environment. Professional staff and other students were welcoming. The presentation s were informative. The area around the campus has numerous activities both school related and non school related. The visit I attended made Penn State summer session tour.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Penn State can be either the best decision or the worst mistake of your life. Personally, I don’t feel as though there is any other college I could see myself at. Penn State has so many incredible resources available for the students, and an amazing alumni engagement network. However, some people find themselves drawn into the party scene. The classes are very challenging, and will either help you raise to the top of your field, or make you have serious doubts and change your major. Either way, Penn State is not for everyone. But, if you feel as though you’re ready to embark on one of the best, and most difficult journeys of your life, Penn State is the place for you.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Penn State is a great University with plenty to offer for any kind of student. There is always a place for student to find their comfort zone. The football games are a great place to hangout with friends, meet new people, and bond over the support of the football team.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Penn State seems to have something for everybody. Having the World Campus class options are great to for those that are not directly on campus or are looking to get in a few extra classes during the semester. The campus itself is quite large, but does not feel overwhelming. Once you get past the general education requirements, the instructors seem to be quite involved with their students and are generally agreeable and understanding when it comes to contacting them outside of class times for help, emergencies, etc. The admissions staff is great to work with and very responsive when issues arise. Overall I have had no major issues in attending this school, whether it be for scheduling classes, getting records straightened out, and even getting all of my veteran status paperwork/applications done. The degree options are plenty, and the location makes the college feel like a small hometown. I would highly recommend Penn State to business students, agriculture students, and those, like myself, that are looking for leadership degrees.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

If I had known this one thing before I chose this school, it would be VERY WHITE. As someone is not Caucasian, I have noticed the lack of diversity. Also, because PSU is located in the middle of Pennsylvania, it gets super col and dry during the winters. If I could get in-state tuition at another school, I would transfer.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Pennsylvania State University is my home. From the moment I walked on campus, I saw the beautiful buildings, excited students, and a place that I wanted to spend my next four years. Penn State students are driven academically and outside of the classroom as well. You will find your group of people at this school because their is not just one type of person or student.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

With the combination of engaging professors, variety of offered clubs and organizations, diversity in and outside the classroom, school spirit, and a large range of student life, there is nothing that Penn State does not offer. Everyone and anyone is more than capable of finding their place on campus, whether it may be being an officer or general member of a club or organization, becoming a Learning or Teacher's Assistant in the classroom, participating in an athletic team, going on runs or walks downtown or on campus, letting loose on a Friday night, or whatever it may be, there is a place for all attending students. We Are!!!
