2 College Junior

Majors: More guidance and problem solving with the students would be nice

3 College Junior

Majors: Grades, all that they care about is the GPA of the student

4 College Junior

Weather: From the area so I'm a little partial

3 College Junior

Nightlife: Downtown campus with lots of neighborhood nightlife

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I love my program. The political science department's tenured and tenure-track professors are excellent, have interesting backgrounds, and all love what they teach. I have learned so much and can't wait to learn more from the faculty in the future.

Health & Safety: I don't know much about the health and safety on campus, but it seems relatively safe aside from random incidents that occur from being an urban campus.

Scholarships: There are many scholarship options, but applying is hard work and tends to take priority over classwork (which unfortunately can result in lower grades).

Athletics: I don't have an opinion on the athletics at PSU because I don't participate in them.
