3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I am a commuter. My friends that do live on campus enjoy it.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There haven't been mostly any problems. I have heard of one incident and everybody was notified immediately in order to prevent any more. The school makes sure we know what happens to prevent any more incidents. The security of the school is all around the campus, they are roaming around and making sure we are safe. They are just a call away and on campus. We can call or hit one of the emergency stations located all over the campus.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: To be honest, I wish that we could have more variety. There is a lot of things, but sometimes the dining is about the same. Also some of the things they do could use some improvements. Although the prices are not bad.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: The city isn't exactly like the other cities. There is a lot of stuff to do, but it could be better. The school isn't really close to much either, but if you have a car than you can get to the good spots. There a couple of attractions and there is a mall so its not completely horrible. I guess the safety is good, but I wouldn't know that much. The local attitude is good, I haven't had any problems so far.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: I believe the academics of the school are great! The teachers are always available for you and they have a great teaching system. I learned some classes much easier than others, but the teachers are really there to help. All the classes that are required are very reasonable and understandable. Its very easy to schedule your classes and if you have any problems going to the office is always an option, which you will know that they will help. Sometimes you might have to do more than other times specially according to the class, but its pretty average for a college life. There are tutoring lessons available to the students of many of the classes. There are also so many places where you can go to get printers, computers and silence in order to study.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: It is pretty hard to get through the biology classes, but its very doable! All the classes that are required for the major are the same as the top schools in the United States, they really know what they are doing. The teachers in the department are really nice and willing to help, its my second year of college and I already have a research. There a lot of opportunities to be the best!

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are a couple of places to check out that very good. There is a lot of the usual fast foods and restaurants. There is also some local places that I haven't heard of that are very good. There are all kinds of cuisine. The prices are pretty good if you go to the right places, although I've never gone to a place where i thought was too expensive. There is also a couple places that include the students discounts but I'm not sure which of them have the discounts.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Guys and girls are pretty average. There is about everything in my school. There is variety among the students but its not a big shank of the student body, but it is there. The school has more guys than girls, and its a pretty small campus. Most of the guys are very athletic and doing some kind of sports, and most of the girls are into partying.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The overall quality is great. Although there are some lousy professors, the class sizes are great and there are some very interesting courses to take. The classroom environment represents a laid-back setting which is easy to relax and learn in.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Although there are students jobs available, they get taken quickly and are then unavailable to the majority of students on campus. The career center does a fantastic job with the career fair each semester.

Overall, most students seem to be very happy at Behrend. In fact, a lot of students who plan on transferring to University Park end up changing their minds and staying at Behrend. Students tend to think of Behrend as a great place or a comfortable setting. Students who are not happy at here blame it on the small size and lack of proximity to more fun things to do. Some Behrend students say it begins to feel like being in high school again after four years, but a lot of that depends on who you hang out with.

Behrend is definitely a small school, so anyone looking for a huge school should look elsewhere, but anyone interested in a moderately sized school with an extremely friendly student body and devoted and kind professors will be right at home here. Students who enjoy the idea of forming close bonds with professors, doing undergraduate research, and being able to visit professors whenever they need to will love the academic side of Behrend. People who want to get involved in campus activities also will love Behrend. Finally, anyone can feel comfortable at Behrend and find his or her niche. Behrend students are extremely accepting of anyone, and it is very easy to make friends in and out of class.
