The overall opinion on Pennysylvania State University- World Campus (it's not shown on the list) is it helps create an online program that helps with our everyday lives. It is accessible 24 / 7 and I am very grateful for the opportunity it has given me. I will attend full time as a first time student.

Its a smaller campus that is neat and clean. Has a lot of freindly faculty and beautiful dorms and classrooms. The meals are amazing and there are so many majors to choose from. Its also not hard to get connected with other students too. So I left my campus visit feeling satisfied with the visit.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Super expensive community college. On the surface there is nothing wrong with it, the professors are good and they offer plenty of classes to take for however long you're there. The campus is clean and safe. The people there have decent manners and are polite enough. This doesn't really tell the whole story though. Majority of the campus commutes so after 6pm the campus is quiet on weekdays, and from Friday at 3pm to Monday at 9am the campus is completely dead. You get the feeling that people don't want to actually be there, from the people I've met the fact that I came here and felt lonely was actually kind of normal. If you want to live at home and commute here, might be a good choice. Otherwise it may not be the traditional college experience you were expecting. Also don't go to Reading at night.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Excellent smaller version of main campus, much more direct contact with professors, and degree requirements are not as strict. There is not much of a party life on campus though, for those looking for that it will be a reach. An active police station is also located on campus, which gives a level of safety across campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Berks is better than University Park. The professors and the rest of the staff actually want to get to know you and will do everything in their power to make sure you succeed. Out of the classroom, there are hundreds of opportunities to engage in clubs, extracurricular activities, on-campus jobs, research, volunteering, and professional and personal enrichment.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My first choice is main campus, but second is Berks. I do understand Penn State offers a two and two program, which is why I do like the Berks campus. My two step-brothers attended the Berks campus for Engineering and loved it. I have toured both the Main Campus and Berks Campus. I feel Main has much more to offer students.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Penn State berks is a good school. Small campus which is good for me, and diverse with faces that I can get to know when seeing people. I just feel like they should have more jobs available for college students, they need to hire more financial aid assistants, and lower the cost of tuition down for students in need because the payment plans are crazy here with them not giving students enough time to pay for their tuition. Sometimes it seems like the staff doesn't care about students with financial needs. They also need to open up a campus convenient store and lower the cost of items, because it seems like normal items like toothbrush/earbuds/medication/ pencils/ etc. are wayyyyyy over-priced like around $15-20 for each item which is crazy.The most over priced items are in the bookstore, and are at some of the dining/café on campus. They need more food service dining halls. As well for the housing facilities they need an elevator, they know students bring a lot of stuff to campus, Come on!!!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think it is a very nice school. The faculty are very nice and helpful, everyone is down to earth and wants to see you succeed. It sort of feels like you are part of a culture or family that is looked out for as long as you but your best foot forward. It really is a nice college once you get familiarized with it. The only thing I would say is the food is not great I mean its better then high school food but eh.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Before attending Penn State Berks, I really didn't think I would enjoy going to school there at all because I would be commuting rather than staying on campus. However after about the first month, I started making friends with the girls and some guys whom I'd met in my classes. We were all elementary education majors, and had similar interests. We would study and do homework together, get lunch in the cafeteria together, and finish each other's sentences. Most, if not all my professors were extremely nice and always willing to lend a helping hand. The professors my first semester had really helped me improve on my time management, writing skills, and overall perception of attending a local campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion about Penn State Berks is that is a great school. It's a smaller class compared to other campuses which is great because it gives you the chance to interact with people you might see in a daily bases and since the classes are smaller your teacher usually recognize you more compared to a bigger class with more kids to remember. Overall, the school is clean, great and nice people, and a lot of interactions involvement with school activities.
