Scholarships: I basically did everything on my own. The financial aide office sometimes sends out emails informing us of scholarship opportunities.

Overall Experience: I enjoy Penn State Brandywine and the area in which it is located. Many of my professors are very much interested in the field of Human Development and are very helpful with issues related to course material or personal (such as jobs, parenting, etc). I have had at least two or three professors that I love and find that their students mean a lot to them. The sizes of my classes were always very good. I enjoyed my courses because they are all so different, and for the general education courses there are so many to choose from.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: We have had at least one professional day where about five or six agencies came in and collected resumes and spoke about their companies. It has been mentioned that a degree from Penn State is very valuable. I guess I will know for sure once I am applying to jobs.

Campus Housing: The dorms will not be built until 2015.

3 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: There are various sports at my campus (basketball, volleyball, etc) but not many students discuss sports very often. Out of at least twenty of my friends, maybe two or three plays sports.

4 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: There are various options, such as sit-down, fast food and various ethnic cuisine restaurants.

4 College Student

Computers: Theres many computers on campus everywhere. Printers are available, everyone is given 200 pages each semester and if you go above that limit, which you hardly won't but if you do, theres charges.

3 College Student

Campus Strictness: The campus is pretty strict. I don't know much, because I haven't got into trouble.

3 College Student

Campus Housing: Theres no dorms on campus. Mostly commuters. During event days, there a lot of students on campus but mostly quiet.

4 College Student

Diversity: We have a lot of international students and diversity, its great to see everyone get along and learn from each other.

4 College Student

Majors: I love the major I picked but it obviously is hard and difficult. I'm just worried that I won't find my dream job but lets hope for the best.

3 College Student

Majors: You get o determine your major after that first two years.

3 College Student

Transportation: Its okay because I have my own car.

3 College Student

Health & Safety: I hardly see them at campus, probably once a day or something.

3 College Student

Athletics: Sports are pretty fun but I hardly hear about them.

4 College Student

Off-Campus Housing: I rent an apt near the campus, its pricey but rooming with someone makes it easier and a bit cheaper.

3 College Student

Nightlife: The area isn't really a party place. If you want to party you might have to go to main campus or the near-by city, which is Philly.

3 College Student

Local Atmosphere: The campus is gorgeous but mostly empty and quiet. During events, all the students are friendly and excited but on normal days, its pretty quiet.

4 College Student

Academics: Engineering is great at this campus. All the classes I need for my major are available on this campus.

3 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: Most the time people go to the near-by mall to get food. Mostly Panda Express or Perkings, which are probably the best it can get.

2 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: It is a 45 min bus ride and sometimes there may not be a seat.

2 College Sophomore

Weather: It's not bad but, right now there have been a lot of snot storms which effects class time.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: They are pretty good but not very popular.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: thers isn't much to do off of campus but being as though we are located in the greater Philadelphia area you can always drive to find somewhere to party eat or just have some fun.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: off campus housing is a little expensive but convenient because there is public transportation its not many options close to campus but the ones that are close I heard that they are nice. expensive but nice to live in

Brandywine is a great school for students who want the "university" experience at a smaller school with individualized attention. There are fewer than 2,000 students on campus, so the professors are able to give more personal attention to students, and it is not very hard to get any extra help from a professor if necessary. There is also a Learning Center and a Writing Center for additional assistance. The campus is about the size of a community college, but it is a Penn State campus that offers many of the same things as University Park, but on a smaller scale. 

The school pride is very much alive on and around campus, and everyone takes pride in the University. As a great school to start out with, Brandywine is part of the Penn State 2+2 program and is helpful for those who do not really know what they intend to major in for their first two years. The University is very nice, and the campus is beautiful. In terms of resources, the technology on campus is wonderful, with computers updated frequently. Even though it's a commuter campus, Brandywine has many programs that get students involved; there are also many opportunities for students to do things like study abroad. All in all, everyone on campus is generally cheerful and happy to be there.
