5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There are regular patrols by campus police every hour or so. The walkways are open and brightly lit for people with late classes. The atmosphere is very safe and friendly, and the patrolmen on campus are approachable and kind.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Each team, no matter what sport, is like a family. The coaches and players have fun with their sport. The support for teams is overwhelming. School spirt is the greatest aspect of Penn State.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The faculty and student body are very welcoming and helpful in every aspect. The professors are encouraging and helpful when needed. The diverse activities are fun and inviting.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I like Penn State Brandywine because the class size is medium, and is not a large number of student in the classroom.

1 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Academically, this school meets the needs of most, but only because it is so closely affiliated with the Penn State system. This is basically a very small step up from community college. The teachers are passionate and caring and there are many resources and travel oppurtunites however that you won't find at community college. But, like I said, the only reason this is possible is because of the University Park Campus and the Penn State network as a whole. Social life is entirely non-existent. Nobody talks to each other because nobody wants to be here. It is really quite depressing. I'm a very social person and am here because my mom would not pay for tuition to a school that I would live at for fears of me not succeeding academically. At first I thought I'd be fine and make some friends but this is The. Worst. College. Experience. Ever! Zero parties, terrible class times, horrible food, and you're surrounded entirely by trashy people. There are a few normal kids (typically freshman in a similar situation as me) but beyond that it is mostly introverts, war veterans, or people rambling on about going to main campus. I hate this place with a burning passion and the only reason I am doing well here is because of my desire to transfer ASAP. Penn State is an amazing university as whole, this is just a boring campus. If you can't get into Penn State - University Park, either pick a major that will get you there after one year like Athletic Training, or go to Altoona. If you're a social person and you're friends are all off at other schools I can guarantee you will hate this place. This is the worst year of my life and I fear it'a really beginning to hold me back. All I can think about is how I should be of having fun, making new friends, and surrounded by oppurtunity. But here I am, I just hope it's not for much longer. F this place :)

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The professor at Penn state (Brandywine) make the campus unique. Most of the professor were past students at Penn state.The professors understand the feeling of being a student, and how it can be overwhelming. They were once seated at the seat the students are now seating. Therefore, I would choose Penn State (Brandywine) again.

2 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I chose to go to this campus in the hopes that it would be easier to learn the material for the Smeal college of business, but I was not expecting on a small campus (smaller than my high school) that the professors would be so stuck up and unhelpful.

Campus Quality: Unless you have not been accepted to any other schools or you're facing financial problems I would definitely suggest a different school to you. The overall assessment of the school is very poor for both academic and social wise.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Brandywine is a great school for students who want the "university" experience at a smaller school with individualized attention. There are fewer than 2,000 students on campus, so the professors are able to give more personal attention to students, and it is not very hard to get any extra help from a professor if necessary. There is also a Learning Center and a Writing Center for additional assistance. The campus is about the size of a community college, but it is a Penn State campus that offers many of the same things as University Park, but on a smaller scale. 

The school pride is very much alive on and around campus, and everyone takes pride in the University. As a great school to start out with, Brandywine is part of the Penn State 2+2 program and is helpful for those who do not really know what they intend to major in for their first two years. The University is very nice, and the campus is beautiful. In terms of resources, the technology on campus is wonderful, with computers updated frequently. Even though it's a commuter campus, Brandywine has many programs that get students involved; there are also many opportunities for students to do things like study abroad. All in all, everyone on campus is generally cheerful and happy to be there.
