I am a Biology major, and I will be a junior in fall 2013. The workload s difficult, but as long as you focus and never lose sight of your goals, it is manageable. Do not overload yourself. It will set you up for failure to try to schedule too many courses or courses that are too difficult simultaneously. Facilities such as the library and computer labs will work in your favor. Use them! Internships and job opportunities are there for those who are interested. Getting involved is the major way to find opportunities.

Something for Everyone! It's impossible NOT to find something that peaks your interest. Theatre for the actors, music for the musician, art for the aspiring artists, sports for the athlete, and education for everyone! There are literally TONS of cloubs you can get involved it. It's so easy to be satisfied on campus! When it comes to academics, you will always have the necessary resources to get your work done. The libraries and computer labs are always available at comvient times and the food servied is delicious. There's so many events and programs to get involved in and so many opportunities to meet new people.

WE ARE PENN STATE! I really like Penn State Hazleton a lot. I wouldn't recommend it to everyone though. I would recommend it to those who like small schools and small towns. Penn State Hazleton is very unique because of its well rounded students. A lot of my friends whoa re in college as well, tell me how their schools don't offer them as much of a variety as Penn State does to me and the rest of its students. I love the fact that for such a small campus, there's still a lot of classes to choose from.
