Overall Experience: I love the location of Lock Haven. The size is perfect and the campus is beautiful. I have enjoyed the professors I've had so far and look forward to my future.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Campus police drive all around campus if you call they will come. I feel safe especially when I know some of the officers and they are pretty cool to talk to and just interact with.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Some classes are small and other are big. I really like the small class sizes because the professor can have that one on one time with the students. Also the professor knows who you are and knows when your not coming to class when it small. With larger class sizes the professor just see you as a number if your don't come to office hours to make yourself notice.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Some of the housing is expensive and the quality is a little cheap for the model. But the suites still look nice.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: They are treated as normal people on campus some are cool and others are not. They have events and parties on campus and people come out and support them.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I don't feel that my school is unique I feel that its a normal University. I wouldn't choose my school again because they do not have the course I really want to take but the school was in my budget so I decided to attend.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I don't have any fear that I am in danger at all when I am here.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: So far I have not any bad experiences with classes or teachers.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: With the degree I am working towards, I am pretty positive a job will be waiting for me when I get out.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live in Fairview Suites. It is a nice place but it is pretty pricey.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: I know a few people in a fraternity here. I am considering pledging but the process is very time consuming with the schedule I'm on. If you have the time however, definitely go Greek.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Intramural basketball could pass for March Madness the way the teams react when they are playing.

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.
