Campus Resources: Everything is up to par.

4 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: Some issues but usually reliable.

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: I love my classes and the professors are very helpful and reliable.

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: Penn State Offers a variety of great programs.

2 College Freshman

Student Body: A lot of so called "losers." Are some hidden gems though.

5 College Freshman

Career Services: Grad school here is very well known.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I enjoy this small beautiful campus.

College Freshman

Online Courses: Never have taken an online course.

4 College Freshman

Online Courses: Some online courses are embedded within a "normal" non-online course. It's very time consuming, and tiring. I don't like it. I would rather a fully online course or a fully non-online course, not a hybrid.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Many of the professors are great, but because it is such a small school, sometimes, you are "stuck" with a professor, whether you like them or not.

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: There is only two real "compsci" classes in Penn State. I have not taken any of them thus far.

However, all my other required classes have been great.

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: As a small school, I have been able to participate in off-side projects that are usually only reserved for upperclassmen. It has been great.

5 College Freshman

Campus Resources: I love most (most) of the staff in my school. They are helpful, amazing, and wonderful. I feel that I always have someone to go to if I am in need of help.

3 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: As a computer science student, my days are jam packed. I am not quite sure how I'm supposed to pay for college, because everyone suggests I take on a job outside of school, but I have no time to work outside school unless I quit sleeping altogether.

College Freshman

Student Body: It is hard to explain my student body, as there are many groups and niches that I can identify, and they all would receive different ratings and reviews.

Unfortunately, the local viewpoint of my school is that this is where the "not-good-enough-for-UPark" students go, which is not true. There are many, many hard workings and successful students that attend my school.

On the flip side, because of the lower enrollment rates, many students under "the cut" or "subpar" students have been accepted into my school. While I am glad that students who may not have done well in high school can have a second chance in college, there are students that take advantage of this and still slack off. I feel that there are many students who just don't come to class for invalid reasons. I strongly believe that sick days, especially mental days to reduce stress, work, etc. are all valid excuses for not attending class. However, I think my school is definitely a party school. I see many students drinking and partying until dawn. I heard of a story of a student who smoked weed in the school library. It's so upsetting.

4 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: As for financial aid, my package was great. Aside from my own textbooks, I am currently not paying for any of my college education because of substantial help from federal and state grants as well as scholarships from Penn State itself. I am, however, worried, because my household income has recently increased significantly. This will surely mean I will not receive as much aid for my tuition next year. While our income has increased, it does not necessarily mean I can afford to pay for college without help, and it is making me worried. I will now have to rely on taking out loans, especially when I move to University Park.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: Some professors are really bad but then others are good. Everything is OK.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: It is difficult. Lots of hard classes. They make it hard to see who can withstand it. Some of the basic classes have awful teachers.

1 College Junior

Online Courses: We don't have many online courses

3 College Junior

Student Body: Some people are there to learn and others are there to fool around and waste their parents money while some of us have to pay for everything ourselves.

2 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Their isn't many people so there is only one section of each class. Therefore if classes are at the same time its not good. And if they are a couple hours apart you have to deal with it.

4 College Freshman

Campus Resources: everyone one is very lay back

5 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: most people I've deal with lately are the best. They don't talk down to you only because you are a student, they talk as if you were one of them(faculty) member i guess it really comes down to rrespect

3 College Freshman

Online Courses: i will prefer non-online but its alright
