What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, my opinion regarding Penn State Altoona is exceptionally high. The academics set themselves apart from other campuses by providing an in depth look at the subject matter, and creating a positive learning environment. The cheerful atmosphere surrounding the campus allows for one to feel at home all while encouraging students to excel in their majors. Additionally, Penn State Altoona advocates for student engagement, prompting students to express their interests outside of their career goals. To summarize, Penn State Altoona sets itself apart not only in academics but also in setting the standard for a true college experience.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Penn State University's Altoona campus truly brings to bear the very best that Penn State has to offer. The Penn State Altoona campus is only 30 minutes away from the Main Campus which allows for students to be apart of the excitement of what "State College", PSU Football weekends, etc. has to offer, while attending a high quality campus with much smaller class size's. Being a branch campus that was so close, we had several professionals that taught classes in Altoona and even had the opportunity to take classes at the main campus. The facilities, buildings and campus housing were all high quality as well. If you're someone that wants a degree that carries the weight of a school like Penn State but the "big campus" environment isn't the best fit for you - check out PSUA. It's truly the best of all worlds!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The campus has a quiet humble overall atmosphere during the day and evening, while having fun opportunities at night. The quality of the courses is stellar. Some professors take their role seriously and can truly help you grow others are just there for the paycheck. My biggest complaint is the food quality and selection at Port Sky, is it just poor, not nutritious, and lacks flavor.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am so proud to be a Penn State student. There is no other place like it. I have made so many new friends and had so many great opportunities to show the world who I am here. I could not do any of the things I do here back at home. The staff are so friendly and the people you meet are from all over so you get to learn something new every single day. I never want to leave this place that I call my home .

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's not unbearable, but it could be better compared to University Park. I've gotten used to the small school and area though, but I'm counting down the days until I transfer to main campus. There is only one dining hall so I tend to eat out a lot as well as my friend. I have a good solid group of friends since we're a smaller school we get to know everyone, at least their face, like high school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Penn State! It's a great community with great people. It's a really nice atmosphere. I've made new friends and there is always lots to do. I'm a photography major and there are some many pretty places around campus to take pictures. The food is really good in the cafeteria too. Lots of variety.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

After attending Penn State Altoona, I can say that I took advantage of my surroundings & learned so much along the way. The small size of PSUA was awesome. It allowed me to get close with my professors and classmates. That being said, I never felt awkward asking a question during lecture or going to office hours. The fact that PSUA is so close to Main Campus was also a great plus for me. I bought season tickets to the Penn State football games both years I attended PSUA. This is a great two year campus, that truly prepared me for my next two years at Main Campus!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

This campus have a very pretty appearance but this Penn State campus is horrible. The atmosphere is like high school all over again involving immaturity and ignorance from both students and administration whereas they also blame others for their problems or their mistakes and can never own up to anything. Academically, they don't have all the required classes for you to take for your major unless your major program is held there directly and some professors lack support and consistency which decreases the interest of the class. Also, the safety on campus is horrible even though they lie as if everyone is safe... no. There was a sexual assault on our campus and the University Police and School of Conduct did so little in solving the issue which ended with the student leaving campus except for the assaulter. To add on, a student was on drugs while driving his car and he crashed into three other cars which were owned by students. This student was allowed to come back onto campus after doing such thing. The choices and the decisions that this campus makes for their students and for themselves is unorganized, unprofessional and conducted in an unmannerly fashion. DO NOT ATTEND THIS CAMPUS!! Every friend that I have has transferred from this campus after their 1st or 2nd year.
