What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love it, and I am actually going to be attending the school fall of 2020. The students are nice, but sometimes the international ones can be a bit “snobby”. As an incoming freshman of Penn State that is going to run for the college, I think Penn State Harrisburg is a small sized college with the opportunity to transfer to its main campus with lots of opportunities.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Penn state Harrisburg is a great school if you like to go to school and then leave. While there are many clubs on campus, a lot of the students don’t take the opportunities. PSU Harrisburg is considered a commuter college, so a lot of people live off campus, except Out of state freshman.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think penn state Harrisburg is a great school and when I get older and have kids, I want them to go here. That is how sure I am that penn state Harrisburg is the best college for me. It offers my major which is engineering. Not only that but engineering is a huge major and penn state offers a solid program.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

This is a commuter school. It is not like Pennsylvania State University-University Park. On weekends the campus is dead, but on weekdays the campus is flocking with students. For sure you will see a new face every day. The school has a great number of diverse students from all over the world.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I feel as though the institution is more concerned about making sure they get as much revenue as possible. There is not a priority on education, but rather on the cost. The school is afraid to seem uncultured, so they put up a thin facade. Overall Penn state has been a disappointment in every way. I transferred from a community college, and I must say there is a big difference between adults struggling for their education versus an institution concerned about how much money they can make from alumni parents.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Penn State is a worldly renowned university. This campus is the perfect place to start and end your degree if you are looking for the environment of a small private college with the cost and resources of a large university. The average class size is between 10-20 people and professors are dedicated to assisting students. The biggest drawback to this college is peers who "can't wait to leave". Penn State offers its student's the opportunity to begin at a branch campus and transfer to their main campus, University Park, after two years. Many students attend this campus to save money before transferring and their mentality is that the smaller atmosphere is boring and they will be unhappy until they transfer. This campus is what students make of it. There are 3 sororities and 2 fraternities offered on campus and students may transfer their Greek membership if they plan to transfer to university park and a chapter of their organization exists there. Numerous academic and interest based clubs are offered here. There are weekly guest speakers and events offered. Students have the ability to plan an event and receive school funding to make their plans a reality. This campus embraces diversity. Many students are foreign; coming from countries like China, Korea, Brazil, India, and Africa. There is a club known as the MAEP that discusses diversity and offers students free meals and items at their weekly meetings. There are three places to eat on campus. The normal dining hall is not a buffet style, and the food repeats often. There is a fast food type place on campus that sells Mac and cheese, sandwiches, tacos, and Penn State Bakery items. There is also a Starbucks on campus. Students may purchase groceries at the on campus grocery store. All of these places accept the meal plan and offer a wide selection of vegetarian options. For students suffering from food insecurity, there is an on campus food pantry, The professors here are very down to earth and enjoy meeting with students. They like to see creativity and good attendance in their classes. Professors are required to have office hours to meet with students and they are required to provide advanced notice of class cancelations, except in emergency situations. Each major and minor offers students the opportunity to attend major specific events to further student's understanding of their field. Many majors also offer access to equipment and resources not provided to other students. If you are looking for a school with worldwide recognition and a small town feel, choose Penn State Harrisburg. You will enjoy shopping in Harrisburg and interacting with the surrounding community. The campus offers students access to resources to make them prepared for their field and prepared for life after graduation. We Are!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love my school. My mom is an alumn and we bleed blue and white! Let’s go State! I will graduate with a degree that is recognized around the world from a top academic institution. There is no better feeling than being a part of a college family.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Great school for commuters and those who want to focus on academics. There's not much night life around campus and the stores are limited but everything a college student needs is nearby. If you can't go to main campus or Erie for engineering, harrisburg is a great alternative
