My overall opinion of Pennsylvania State University- Penn State Brandywine is very good. I am an out of state student from New Mexico and since I've been living here I have felt so welcome. Our academics and culture are very strong. Our professors come from outstanding backgrounds, and our Penn State community and culture is deeply embedded and continues to carry on in every activity we pursue to do.

I love the students and faculty on campus. I am able to walk around and see a familiar face anywhere I go. Even if I don't know someone, everyone is friendly and willing to get to know people. The students work hard and are very academic. We also enjoy the activities that campus has during common hour and the many clubs that are offered on campus including the ones that we can start on campus. The new buildings coming Fall 2017 will definitely be a great improvement to our campus and make the campus community much more new and exciting to explore. The admission and advisors are extremely helpful and friendly. They are resources you should use all the time.

Although it is a small, intimate campus the size of a high school, Penn State Brandywine is an excellent place to start one's college career, especially if he/she is wary at the beginning of university. As an international student, I found it extremely convenient to assimilate myself into the student society as well as a new country and culture by joining this campus. Moreover, for a person who is very much interested in knowing about their community and the world around them, Penn State offers a wide variety of co-curricular activities as well as trips to different places all year round, something I partook in more than once! I would definitely recommend Penn State Brandywine to those who would like to have a cheerful and fun start to their university experience!
