Terrible place and bad staffing
Great learning environment. The faculty and staff is great and always on hand to assist in any area a student may have. The sport programs are outstanding. Going to class everyday is worthwhile. The student body actually care about the campus and other students.
It is a small campus. A small campus has its benefits, such as small class sizes and professors that know you. Some people may find it a bit boring, but you could do the 2+2 program. If you're in a certain major that can't be done all 4 years at PSUGA you can do 2 years at Greater Allegheny then 2 years at Penn State's main campus. Other than that I find the campus to be a good learning environment, and I've had no bad experiences, and I like most of my professors.
Penn State Greater Allegheny is the perfect school to start out with if you are thinking about going to college. We are a smaller campus with about 500 students and are very diverse. We have been listed as the 8th safest campus in Pennsylvania. The class sizes range from about 5 students to the size of what a normal high school class would be. Penn State offers many scholarships for new students and provides the best entertainment for students during their lunch hour and finals week. We also offer ACE which is where you can receive free help with tutors on campus and provide ways for students to be provided with books at a discounted price to no price at all.
PSUGA is a great place to be if you are looking to study your time away! The professors are nice and the class sizes are small. There is not much to do on campus but take a 30 min ride and you'll find yourself in downtown Pittsburgh. I would say PSUGA is excellent for a calm, quiet, and distraction free campus for people who want to study.
Pennsylvania State University-Greater Allegheny is a great satellite campus. It is small but it makes it up with the level of academics and excellence that it gives its students and faculty. The interaction between staff and students is amazing and one is always left feeling welcomed.
