Greek Life: The greek life is great on campus. They advertise everywhere on campus. They do a lot of organizations around campus to help out the community.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: We just started this new thing this school year, its called ALLIN. Were everybody is all in to the sports. Theres alot of school spirit, we have a lot of pep rally's in the streets and we have 5th quarter parties after the football games. The fans are amazing, loud, and cheerful.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Lock Haven feels just like home to me. Its a medium sized school, the longest time to walk to class is 10 mins. Everyone there is just so helpful and nice. The professors know you on a first name basest, you're not just a number. The professors are also very helpful when you need it.

Overall Experience: Lock Haven University has given me many opportunities to take control of what I am learning and really prepare myself for a graduate level education. Due to the size of the university, students have opportunities to receive one-on-one mentoring from professors, opportunities to conduct research directly with professors, and receive one of a kind internship opportunities. The benefits of attending Lock Haven University started with the affordable cost, and grew to so much more when I started my education here.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: all of the people are friendly here

2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The classes are okay, but everyone goes home on the weekend. I live about four hours away an don't go home much so it gets kind of lonely, especially when all your friends don't stay.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I am truly enjoying my time at Lock Haven. I have had some outstanding professors and had many opportunities to be part of extracurricular activities. Lock Haven has a homey environment and the scenery is beautiful.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: If i had to do it over again I would choose a larger school and not so close to home. I chose this school becuase the tuition was easier on my mother but it is harder on myself to be in my home town becuase i didn't get to experience major school activities such as sporting events. I also wish I had got the opportunity to meet new people where at my school I knew everyone from local surrounding school districts.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It was ok I just had a bad time transitioning from high school to college, but as of now I know what should be expected and what it requires to receive good grades.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I love the campus, its not too big but also its not too small, the classes are perfect size as well, teachers know the students personally. My favorite experiences is homecoming, inter murals, and sport events. Our school is unique because of the culture that it has which is great. If I could i would do it all over.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The experience at this school is good. It has it's up's and down's but for the most part it's good. The school is in a rural area and for people who are not use to stores closing down at five, it can be a bit overwhelming. My favorite experience was hanging out with my friends one night we didn't go out we just sat on the steps and talk. What make my school unique is that they are very excepting of all kinds of students. If I could do it all over again I probably wouldn't choose my school again because I really don't like it, it's not a bad school and I really like it their it's just I will look at more school and go to visit more schools to find out which school fits me best.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Some of my favorite experiences of attending Lock Haven University are the volunteer opportunities, student activities, and the friendships that have been built. Many students that attend become instant friends. It is rare to go to a place where student bonding is so quickly built. I loved volunteering to help out with Relay for Life and be part of a missions team to help those in storm stricken housing. I would choose this school again because I have had great people to work with in the offices, the professors, and other students.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Small class size and very helpful proffesors

4 College Sophomore

Administration: They do tend to enforce rules on campus. I generally feel pretty safe.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I filled out my fafsa and I applied for a few scholorships through my school. I was eligable for a few grants and loans as well as winning two scholorships from my school district, through which I was able to pay for school.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of options. A lot of the resteraunts in town are chain resteraunts, but there are a few places that are not which is nice.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: There are a lot of options for where and what to eat. The only downfall is that upper benttly does generally serve a lot of the same types of foods all the time and it is not always the freshest.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I've lived in a double room in woolridge hall. Everyone was nice and accomodating. The only things i didn't like was that we could hear people talking through the walls/doors when if they were loud enough,sometimes the washer or dryer would break down and their were only two community computers for the whole floor to use when we needed to print something out or use them.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: I enjoy lower Bentley better because I find the food better than upper most of the time. Although lower has the same thing everyday and requires you to use flex I still prefer it over upper. Upper is good once in a while. I always buy the mozzarella sticks from Bentley market because they are so good. Lower is more unhealthy because its a lot of greasy food compared to upper but there are healthy choices.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Fairview was great to live in. It was close and convenient to all the classes besides east campus. But all the dorms are far from east campus. I enjoyed having my own private bedroom, a bathroom, kitchen area, and living room space in my dorm in Fairview. A lot of people in the building were very friendly. It is a bit expensive but it was worth it because it is as of now the only building with all those amenities and Wi-Fi throughout the whole dorm.

Scholarships: The financial aid process went fine, however did not receive a scholarship so could not rate this process.

2 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Not sure where, but have seen that it impacts the students in a negative way. 2 students on my floor are on academic probation, with GPA's of .4 and .9. This is a terrible representative of the parties scene on campus.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The menus has very little variety to the choices. Not always fresh. Could use fresh salad and veggie options. The milk even there has a funny taste. I use my flex dollars in other areas to purchase snack items etc.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I live in a suite at my college. The dorm rooms provide a double bedroom with a shared bathroom for 2 students. The size of the dorm is adequate for 2 students with desk area and bed. The down side of the dorm is the internet connection is extremely poor. You are kicked off the internet frequently, even when taking an online test. Additionally, the cost and convenience is pretty average to other college suites.

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.
