Pennsylvania State University-Penn State Erie-Behrend College Top Questions

What is your overall opinion of this school?


The best thing about Penn State is that there is something here for everyone. Practically every major you could think of, any club you would want to join, I would bet money Penn State has it. The school is large, yes, but it's only as large as you want to make it. The more involved you get, the smaller it becomes. Teachers do a great job of making you feel like a person instead of a number, even in large lectures. They will do anything to help you succeed and genuinely want to see their students do well. People always are impressed when I tell them I'm a senior at Penn State. They hear the name and automatically think great things about the school, the campus, the prestige it offers. This is another great thing about Penn State- it has a great reputation and almost everyone has heard of it. The downtown area of PSU is great too. There are plenty of shops and practically everything you could ever need is right here, just down the hill from campus. The school pride is tangible on campus and its infectious. It is rare to walk through campus without hearing "WE ARE....PENN STATE!" It's a great feeling going to a school where its students are proud to be there and be a part of the University.
