After Penn State Harrisburg

For reference, I'm from Southern California before I moved out here to Harrisburg. The campus is aesthetically nice, everyone is very helpful for the most part, and every teacher i've had has been extremely insistent on helping their students as much as they can. It's more on the isolated side, you'll get that hint when you see the fact that we have a cornfield on campus.

There is always a new person to meet, and always something to do. If you're bored or lonely, you're not using your resources well enough.

It's a very quite place away from the city, thus for studying, the environment is good. However, since the school is not that big, we don't have much fun here, the activities are relatively few. The course here is not that hard, so the pressure would not be too much. And the professors are very nice, the class is small so that we can have more contact with both classmates as well as the teacher.
