4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: There are many selections available for off campus housing. There are townhouse, apartments, houses, etc. open for students to rent. The sizes of all of these living options vary and there is a decent amount of each size. Cost also varies, mostly depending on the size and the quality. It's great to live off campus and experience your own freedom.

5 College Junior

Athletics: Sporting events on campus are awesome. More than half of the students show up to any kind of sporting event and everyone shows a great amount of school spirit. It's very easy to get involved at the games and a lot of the students do. The gymnasium and football field are extremely nice and our students are proud of them and keep them clean.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: You can sign up for alerts either via text or email that let you know whenever anything is going on around campus (crime, weather, etc.) and I feel that those are a great tool. Those allow students to get a heads up of what's happening and how it's being taken care of. I see quite a few campus patrol cars every now and then and that's reassuring. I feel pretty safe on campus.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: A lot of options for off-campus dining. Very convenient and most are in walking distance from campus. The cost varies between restaurants but most is very affordable. Ice Shack and OIP are the best!

Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: I have never lived on campus. I have only ever commuted to college each day.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Of course off campus is the best because you don't have to worry about being told what to do by RA's. The cost is excellent and proximity to campus most are convenient. You will find a lot of landlords are easy going you just have to be careful.

4 College Junior

Campus Strictness: Lock Haven is a great school to attend the perfect mix of schooling and social life. The only downside to this school is the 3 dorms located on top of the hill mostly freshman are appointed there. The school is very strict campus police are always out and the RA's are very strict. There has been numerous amounts of people who have been caught with alcohol or marijuana and as a result been kicked out. Citations are very frequent for underage drinking, parking

4 College Freshman

Weather: Because Clearfield is very small (two buildings) and there isn't anything to do outside the weather has no affect on it but at main campus I am sure it affects a lot of different activities.

3 College Freshman

Computers: At Clearfield campus we have one computer lab and the library has some computers as well. The computer lab as about 20 computers and a table for students to use their laptops. Printing on campus is great, there are multiply places to print to. The speed is pretty good, wifi can be slow at times and sometimes doesn't work at all but the tech support gets it running again pretty quick when it stops. Its easy to access. At Clearfield campus some classes its helpful to bring a laptop to class because then you can just go on d2l and save the lecture notes to your laptop instead of printing them out or writing them down. So buy a laptop because it will come In handy a lot.

Making friends that last a lifetime is just an added bonus to a student's "Haven" experience. However, the school is not for everyone. At times, the University can feel too small, almost like a high school. And if you don't like cold and moody weather, you may want to consider going somewhere else. On the other hand, Lock Haven is in a gorgeous region of Pennsylvania, and the drive alone is worth the trip.

If you're looking for a school that's highly spirited when it comes to sports, you may want to drive down the road to Penn State. School spirit at Lock Haven is nonexistent, with more students turning out for the intramural and club sports than the varsity ones. The lack of spirit doesn't transcend to academics, though. The intimate classroom sizes are conducive for great one-on-one relationships with professors, igniting spirited discussion. Professors can be tough graders, but it's not high school—nothing comes easy anymore. Overall, if college is a battlefield, then Lock Haven prepares you for the war of the workforce.
