What is your overall opinion of this school?

Penn State Mont Alto offers a wide variety of opportunities to learn and grow in the career field you wish to pursue. All of the faculty and students are so pleasant and the landscape of the place is beautiful. I always feel safe and welcome each day I go to class, and everyday I am there I learn so much information. All of the professors are there to help you and you can really tell how much they care about you succeeding. They take time out of their schedule to help you when you're in need. Overall it is a great place to be.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I originally chose to go here because I wanted to be closer to home, which has been great for my first two years. I have learned that I do not like how close I am to home, how small the campus is, and how the campus is in the middle of nowhere. The class size is great because they are small but I feel like there's never anything to do. There is nothing close by.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Penn State Mont Alto is a beautiful campus. The class sizes are small and you really get to know your professors and other students. All of the professors I've had so far are great and they really care about their students success. There is a fair amount of activities to get involved in, but it is a small campus so there isn't as much offered at this campus as there would be at bigger campuses.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Classes are small, Professors are available, and everyone knows each other. I maintain friendships with intelligent class fellows so my conversation is pretty intelligent. I live on Campus, they don't have Air Conditioning but it's only a problem for the very first month and the very last month. People are very friendly and kind to each other.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would make sure that I had additional help with different areas of math. I was a serious student and had always focused on doing well in school. I had changed my mind several times about what I wanted to do when I graduated. I might talk to myself and get my mind made up sooner to better focus on looking for scholarships to help with tuition.

What's unique about your campus?

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Do not choose a college because of it's name, trust me, that should be the least of your worries. It is highly important to visit the schools you have in mind because once you're there on move in day, you're stuck. Consider the reviews of your friends and family, but keep in mind that it all depends on what you think because you will be living there- not your friends. As far as campus activities, go to them! It's an easy way to meet friends and gain connections. First semester will be cliquey because everyone wants a "bestfriend". Don't worry about it, chill and do you. Your professors and faculty can only help you when you make it known you need the help. With that said, speak up and take advantage of the offers at hand. Remember, when things seem to not go as planned, MAKE THE BEST OF IT!

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

Personally, the worst thing about my school is the fact that it is in the country. It is not a city-like area. Unless you own a car you are limited to traveling off campus because the nearest gas station is about 3 miles away and the nearest WalMart is even further.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Anyone who enjoys the country side, and quietness.

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

Penn State Mont Alto is a small campus with high expectations. The professors provide a great education to the students in attendance and create a fun learning environment. Penn State Mont Alto is a close-knit family of students and professors who all work together to help each other succeed.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would tell myself that it is ok to have some fun and relax during your time in school, reach out and make new friends. I have spent my first two years doing nothing but studying and believe me that pays off but you need to take time to relax and have fun. Stay focused on what you want, there will always be that one class that really challenges you but you have to keep you head up and push through; trust me it will be worth it in the end. Take classes focused around biology, I went in undecided and that gavve me time to decide what I wanted to do but if I knew when I started what direction I was headed I would have been much closer to fulfilling the requirments for that major. And most of all don't be afraid to be yourself and get involved; work hard and challenge yourself along the way. Make college an learning experience, through the education you receive as well as the obstacles you face along the way. Be open to new experiences and learn as much as you can in the time you have.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The only thing that isn't great about Mont Alto is the the location if you are someone who enjoys city life. It is located in a rural area so there is little to do on a regular basis that doesn't involve being outside, so if you like thrills you have to travel.
