After studying for one academic year at Hazleton, I can honestly say that Hazleton was not for me. It is a very small campus, therefore you see the same things each day and there is scarcely anything to do. If you are from a city like Philadelphia or NYC, Hazleton may not be the ideal branch campus for you, although you could take a fifteen dollar van to these metropolitan areas.
The surrounding area of Penn State Hazleton is indeed, very plain. If you want something to do, be sure to have a car for transportation. On campus clubs also are available to participate in at Hazleton. Being able to get involved will lessen the feeling of boredom or inactivity.
As for the academia, challenging courses are available and instructed by really good intellectual thinkers here. That being said, Hazleton is a great campus when focusing on solely on academics. The professors are always willing to assist students in any challenges or difficulties, as long as the students are willing to put in the effort.
It is a beautiful campus and the professors and administration cares but there is nothing to do and campus is too small to have multiple clubs here. There is a small amount of things to do and there is no transportation on weekends. Overall it is okay.
it is small but affordable. easy to keep grades up.
