3 College Freshman

Administration: There's nothing interesting to say about this one.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I'm lucky I got financial aid at a branch campus because it's extremely difficult at the main campus. Penn State has shown itself to be very stingy.

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: There needs to be more options. They need to speed up the expansion and addition of dining halls, because the current one is beyond mediocre. It's sad, really.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Housing is okay. It could be better, but it's actually pretty spacious compared to other, larger schools.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Waaayyy better than living on campus. Much more freedom off campus, and privacy as well.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: The best you'll get is Friday nights, and parties usually get busted by 2am. Parties are usually lame as hell.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Hardee's isn't very good, and can get repetitive. I expected more of the mom and pop pizza shops, and everything else is just sad. You have to go all the way to Harrisburg just to find something decent to eat.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I thought it was a lengthy process, but they were helpful to me.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: It's not the best food, but it's better than some campuses I've eaten at before.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I love everything about this campus! The social atmosphere is superb, and I feel at my best here

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I live in campus heights, I found it very easily and love it

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: I love them! it's super social and easy to get to. it's not too crazy, so the cops don't get too involved

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: If you want something different, you would have to drive a bit.

3 College Freshman

Administration: The administration could use some work.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I live at Campus Heights and really enjoy it.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: The campus is very quiet but it is a relaxing place to be.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I don't live on campus but some of the apartments are okay. Small but tidy.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Never anything special, but something to do.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Great places. Very close to campus. Reasonable.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Not a lot very close, but good what's there.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Not a partier and not much as far as I know.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Still working on scholarships. Not sure yet.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: It's good but overpriced for people in college.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Dont live there but seems very nice and affordable.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: There are a few off-campus housing apartment complexes that most of the students fill up pretty fast. The costs are relatively affordable ($600-800) per month.
