5 College Junior

Health & Safety: We were rated the safest school in the United States

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Perfect place for an Engineering Student Like myself, and even if you don't like it after a year you can transfer ALL of your credits to University Park (Much Different Atmosphere). Come here if you get the chance! You won't regret it!

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Penn State has the most amount of live alumni in the professional world so networking is fantastic. Almost all engineering students get jobs in the career of their choice.

2 College Junior

Campus Housing: Only about 10% of students can be in the on-campus dorms with no guarantee for freshman. Off-Campus Housing is OK however Management sucks there.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Not a part of Greek Life but they throw good parties

4 College Junior

Athletics: Division 3 School and alot of student athletes, but nothing compared to University Park. Fan turnout is great taking into account campus size. Teams are not always so great... The Gym is sometimes crowded during the early afternoon but has everything you need and more if you are a Novice or Regular Athlete / Body Builder. Intramurals are a fantastic way to meet people and get involved and NEVER conflict with classes.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Friendly Students and Faculty, Great Post-College Employment Rate, and Cheap Tuition. The School is constantly growing with a new building that opened last year for engineering labs and a new Student Center opening this Summer. Plans are for even more buildings to go up. The Social Atmosphere here is great. Not a "Party School" per se but if you want to have fun there are plenty of parties as well as school run activities and bars around town. 15 minutes away from Harrisburg. Great school for Engineering, Biology, Criminal Justice, and Political Science. Other programs may be just as good. Plenty of ways to get jobs on campus, intramurals on campus, sports teams, and clubs.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: the campus was rated #1 in safety last year!

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: i say it is okay because i am not part of greek life. so i don't personally have a review

4 College Freshman

Athletics: This campus has many fitness classes to offer! They have P90X, a spin class, yoga, zumba, core abs class, and even insanity! The fitness loft and the weight room are super nice but I prefer going to the classes personally. They are awesome and super fun!

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love Penn State! The professors that I've had so far have been great and so helpful whenever i need the help! The career services center has already been a great help and I'm only in my first year! They lay out an academic plan for you right away which is very helpful when it comes to scheduling!

4 College Freshman

Athletics: While I am not involved in any athletics I know that athletics are a fairly important part of campus life. All fields are nice and generally well taken care of.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I like how the small school allows for professors to know individual students and also gives them the time to meet with them when necessary. Professors are all very passionate about their students and ensuring that they succeed.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Known for safety with a police station very close. I feel no need to feel unsafe.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Penn State is a great school to come from and it does not matter which campus.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Class styles and sizes are average and most professors are willing to help.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: They have nice layouts and it's nice to have separate rooms.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: They are not well known by a lot of people and I feel they don't really affect much at all.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Many of the things available are not even known about by most people in the school.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Overall nice school, but small and not much to do outside of the classroom.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I have not heard or been part of any safety issues.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Whenever I have any questions or concerns, the professors have all been very helpful.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live in off-campus housing and I love it.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is not a focal point on our campus.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: This is a Division III school, so the sports cannot compete like other divisions. They are striving to make their programs standout though.
