3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The school is filled with some intelligent teachers who really help students grasp the information, but aside from academics there really isn't much to do for the school unless you are involved in sports or extracurricular activities associated with the university. I give it an okay rating because of location.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The professors at LHU are fantastic. They are always helpful, friendly, and genuinely concerned with their students' progress in the courses they teach.

2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I am a theatre major at a school where the arts are dying and it makes me very sad. One could say this is my fault, but when I applied to LHU I was assured that the theatre program was superb. this was not the case and I am VERY upset. I appreciate LHU and everything it has to offer, but I don't see myself being able to earn my degree there. I am fairly certain I will either end up transferring or changing my major and that truly breaks my heart.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I think the safety on campus is just fine. The students are kept updated on anything bad that happens on campus, things like that generally don't happen. I am pleased to say in this regard I am very proud of my school.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Overall, housing is quite nice, I lived in Fairview suites, and the staff and RAs were friendly and helpful. That being said, there wasn't really a sense of community within the dorm, it was difficult to make friends and people mostly kept to themselves.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Overall, I've really quite enjoyed myself at my current college. I do have certain misgivings, but they have nothing to do with the adequacy of the professors or the environment of the school itself. The main issue at my school is that it appears that students, professors, and alumni have no say whatsoever in which programs receive funding and which do not. For example, the football programs receives an inordinate amount of money, even though the never win ANY games, and the theatre and dance programs receive NO funding and are still expected to put on regular performance for the student population, much to the dismay of everyone involved.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There has been minimal crime on campus and if something major happens the school sends out a public safety notice as soon as possible so people can be aware. The campus police is always out and about patrolling too and the police are very nice people.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The class sizes are small unless you have a general lecture like basic chemistry or biology 1. My professors are really good about having office hours for people to come and ask questions. I believe that all of my professors are fair in grading. Because it's a small college. There aren't as many classes offered like pennstate but I feel that it is reasonable

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I am just finishing my freshman year so I do not have much to say about this topic.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live in the FAIRVIEW suites. I was rather dissatisfied with the community atmosphere there. I hardly know my neighbors. But, when I visit my friends in MacEntire, the community feel is awesome. Everyone knows everyone and even though there is more drama people always talk to each other. I wish I stayed in a more traditional style so that I was able to have those interactions.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I don't know much about Greek life as I am not involved. But, I know that it costs a lot of money and they do some things around campus. People think that the Greeks are snobby and hate all non Greeks

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I think there is a lack of school spirit here. But, all of the sports facilities and fields are in great condition and kept up with and when I attend a sporting event I am always happy. We have some really good teams. Some D1 but mostly D2. Our football team isn't very good to be honest.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My fist year at school has been awesome. I've met the best people and they have a lot of club choices, like Quidditch. I joined the club and it's another part that I love. The professors are really understanding and my advisor is great. I am also a part of the leadership program and we do a lot of events for the freshman which is really good to help people get involved

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: There are worse places with a lot more drug problems.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: It is mostly safe here.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Some professors and courses are better than others.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: They are out there if you look.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: It's nothing big and worth while.

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: There's not a lot of school spirit.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It's easy to get involved in school activities.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Sometimes you never know and it's a hard topic to discuss.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Lock Haven has been great to me and I am so happy I chose this school for my studies.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I believe it is great!

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I hated my experience, but that may be just me

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Well I'm biased because I am in Sigma Sigma Sigma here at LHU and I love it.

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.
