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.

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.

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.

5 College Senior

Academic Experience: The faculty is willing to help students with all their classes. Good curriculum.
