Drug Safety: most people drink occasionally --there are parties every weekend somewhere on or off campus. Students are pretty much accepting of others choices...

5 College Freshman

Diversity: There is lots of diversity of everything. Everyone for the most part is accepting of anything which is great.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I had no found myself in a situation where anyone was trying to get me to drink or do drugs. There really isn't a bad drug or alcohol scene on campus.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I think that the campus is an overall safe place to be. I know where I am staying in the suites I have access to emergency buttons on every floor if I need help. Also, there are emergency buttons right outside the building entry and the only way to get in to the front or up the stairs or up the elevator is with a key card for that building only. I have not come across any crime yet which is great and I feel like it will stay that way.

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.

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.
