4 College Junior

Campus Housing: The dorms are very nice, I lived in the fairview suites and i enjoyed it because it had all the resources you would need and i have made the closest friends there, just because i lived there. It is a little pricey but i believe it was well worth it.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: The Greek life is a controversial topic to talk about considering the fact that you'll get different answers from people. Some people love it while others hate them because of the things they have done in the past. I think Greek life is interesting and even though i am not involved in Greek life i have nothing against them. The housing is very dirty majority of the times i am there and it gives a bad first impression.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Our University lacks athletic spirit and it is a shame to see that happen. It almost seems as if majority of the people here do not really care about sports and show minimal effort to support our teams.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: There are many things that make a certain school unique, one of which is the dyke located right next to our school. We have many extra circular activities to be involved in and the atmosphere is very accepting and warming. I really enjoy this University because of how everything is set up.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: The campus security do a good job of keeping the students out of harms way.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: The school has a huge community of alumni who stay connected with the university. They continue to participate and donate whatever they can whenever they can.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: The dorms are okay for the most part. Some of them are outdated while others are upgraded. This makes the campus look as if it is in a limbo.

3 College Senior

Athletics: Students get involved in the sporting vent when they arrive. Whole weekends become celebrations whether we win or lose.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I love the community feel that i get from my school. This is due largely because of the clubs in which i have the opportunity to be apart of. I would choose my school again if i had the chane. I feel comfortable there after so many years.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The cops are always talking with kids about safety and are always around when you need them.

4 College Freshman

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

Overall Experience: Lock Haven is small enough to allow you to not get lost in the sea of students like other schools.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I enjoy my classes and my professors are able to keep it interesting

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My academic adviser has mentioned to me possible internship opportunities for when I get closer to graduation

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I know there are some programs to help people who have been assaulted

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The fairview suites dorms are great facilities to live in

3 College Sophomore

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.

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.
