Overall Experience: Everyone I've met on campus has shown that they care about their students, and they will help us how ever they can to succeed.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms themselves aren't bad, but the people in the dorms are what make living here kind of a drag.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: They have a lot of different intramural sports to choose from like soccer and Quidditch

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: You hear about the greek life on campus, but it's not too big of a deal

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: The coaches are great however facilities could be better and some sports are treated unequally

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Lock Haven is a great small school where the community is tight knit and it is easy to get to know people.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: My overall experience has been very good. I've met new people, learned a lot of new things, and had a fun time so far. Courses are convenient and the professors are very understanding. They offer some interesting courses, both online and in-class. The class sizes are nice because they aren't as big as some other colleges and not as intimidating.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I cannot say for all of the topics listed but I can comment on the value of degree from this school. The nursing program in particular is a very valuable degree. This school has one of the best programs in the county or perhaps even state. Graduates of the program say that hospitals will openly admit that they prefer LHU nursing students over other school's nursing graduates.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: It is located in a very safe community. I am not worried at all about any sort of violence.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus, I commute from home. I can say that the housing is very nice on campus though.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The school is small and not as intimidating as most schools are. The staff is friendly and willing to help. Also the student body is friendly and very like-minded. The only downside that I can report is that they're a little slow when it comes to sending students letters and notifications by mail. It would also be nice if the Clearfield campus offered more majors.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have yet to start, but I'v been on campus and love the area.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I think like everywhere some of my classes and professors were great--others were not. I did have to drop 1 class my 1st semester due to an inability to understand the accent of my professor

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel safe on campus. but I am male. There are areas on campus that are somewhat secluded and should be avoided by females unless in groups

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I did enjoy my 1st year dorm experience as I was on a floor with other wrestlers and football players. Dorms are co-op so there is always alot of activity. I was pleased to know there were elevators since I was on the 5th floor!! Rooms are HOT all year long even with fans going and windows open. Rooms are a nice size and the closet space is adequate. I do think the cost is a bit high--but that is my opnion

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: As a member of the wrestling team I spend alot of time in the wrestling room, gym,and training center. All the equipment is well maintained with adequate stations. Athletes have their own training facilities so they have almost 24 hr availability. All students including members of the athletic teams can also use the regular training center.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I enjoy every aspect of "the Haven" . Distance from home is perfect--about 1 1/2 hrs. My class sizes are moderate to small, the campus is easy to navigate as long as you don't mind all the hills!! I am a member of the wrestling team and both admire and respect my fellow teammates and coaching staff. I considered, and was accepted at 2 other universities but I am very happy my decision was Lock Haven.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The housing is very up to date and modern. And the halls have just the right amount of rules to ensure no major issues

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: The school spirit at Lock Haven is great. A lot of students attend games to cheer on the players

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Making friends that last a lifetime is just an added bonus to a student's "Haven" experience. However, the school is not for everyone. At times, the University can feel too small, almost like a high school. And if you don't like cold and moody weather, you may want to consider going somewhere else. On the other hand, Lock Haven is in a gorgeous region of Pennsylvania, and the drive alone is worth the trip.

If you're looking for a school that's highly spirited when it comes to sports, you may want to drive down the road to Penn State. School spirit at Lock Haven is nonexistent, with more students turning out for the intramural and club sports than the varsity ones. The lack of spirit doesn't transcend to academics, though. The intimate classroom sizes are conducive for great one-on-one relationships with professors, igniting spirited discussion. Professors can be tough graders, but it's not high school—nothing comes easy anymore. Overall, if college is a battlefield, then Lock Haven prepares you for the war of the workforce.
