5 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: I really do enjoy going to Penn State Mont Alto. The school is a beautiful little campus where the professors are really helpful and wanting you to succeed just as bad as you want to. They are always there for extra help if needed and do the best they can to make you understand. Enrollment was quick and easy just like paying tuition is. If you're looking for a school with a verity of different majors with professors who are there to help, but do not want a big campus life, Mont Alto is the place to go.

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: Being a French major, I find the main problem with PSU's Mont Alto branch is there aren't enough courses for me to take. There are only the three basic French classes, and if one is above those levels, there isn't much more to learn. I have to transfer to University Park to continue pursuing my major, and that costs much more. However, I still rated it great because the teacher we have so far, who's responsible for all three courses, gave me private work and lessons that have really helped me, for free.

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: The PSU system has great academics all-around, and Mont Alto is no exception. The professors all care about making sure their students learn, and they enjoy their subjects a lot. The courses are all high-quality and have substantive topics. The only problem is the general lack of courses available to choose from because Mont Alto has room for fewer choices than some of the larger PSU branches and University Park.

Tuition & Financial Aid: Going into the school, I was able to get a semesterly 4,000 scholarship in the basis of my proficiency in French. Though it still leaves some gaps, that's a load off already, and there are many scholarships exclusive to the campus that one can ask about there or find online. Because the campus is rather small, the tuition rates are lower than average.

1 College Junior

Academic Experience: Although I love that I will soon be done with nursing school, the faculty has not made it enjoyable. Yes, nursing school is hard but it is a very unfriendly learning environment.

1 College Junior

Academic Experience: There is limited classes offered in terms of times per subjects. That makes it difficulty to schedule.

1 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: I hardly get any financial aid and it does put a huge burden on me during school. Penn state offers limited scholarships that you can apply for, I was told this by the financial aid counselor. I usually go online to apply for scholarships.

4 College Junior

Career Services: I believe the actual main campus of penn state has an amazing network and job prospects but I do not believe this actual branch campus does.

2 College Junior

Student Body: There is little diversity in regards to the penn state mont alto community. Our town is small and it really reflects on the population of our school.

1 College Junior

Campus Resources: With just over 1000 students, we do not have hardly any activities. Most are nontraditional students so there is little to accommodate to younger students.

1 College Junior

Campus Resources: We only had 110 prints a semester free but since a student complained the printing budget was bumped to 150. There are very few places to print from.

College Junior

Online Courses: I have not taken an online class yet so I cannot answer about those courses.

2 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: The academic flexibility my schedule has is very poor, but honestly it is understandable for me considering it is a nursing program. There is only one nursing class offered so I have to be willing to adjust my schedule.

3 College Junior

Facilities: My school is one of the last to offer the 2 year ASN RN program which I am very fortunate to attend. My school also offers forestry which is unlike many other schools worldwide.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I've met many great students and faculty, and have learned so much.
