3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The pizza is the best.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I love that we get apartment style dorms. It causes us to really have to get into the groove of being adults because we have to learn to cook for ourselves. However, it would be nice if we still had the option of a meal plan so that we wouldn't have to starve.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: For students who live on campus, it is not a regular occasion that we go to the Hidden Stream cafe since we have our own kitchen. However, when I do go there, I usually get a smoothie which is really delicious and pizza along with fries.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Our dorms are like apartment style. In the Nittany apartments there are three bedrooms, two people per room, two bathrooms, a living room and a spacious kitchen. In every apartment building, there is at least two Residential Assistants. The only hard part about living on campus is trying to keep up with expenses considering that they raise the rent every year. Other than that, it is a lovely living environment.

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: When I first arrived, I wanted to do off campus housing, but my school will not allow that if the dorms did not fill up as they should've, or the availability of off campus housing is terrible.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There is no where near that is remotely close of walking distance other than fast food. The diners that you would need to drive to have great service, but a bit pricy. The placement of the school and the eatery's are not a good placement.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: This campus in my opinion, is not very strict with rules that are claimed to be "strict". There is drinking that does go on in the dorms as well as smoking and I feel that some of the resident assistants (RA) do not enforce the rules as they should. Not only do the RA's not enforce rules and consequences as enforced on them, but they condone the things that happen by knowing what is going on and not doing anything about it, or they take part in the certain activities that go on. If I had a younger sibling that wanted to come to college, I would not recommend this campus for him/her.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The financial aid process at my school went very smoothly and I was completely satisfied with the process. They helped me out and found a different route for me to take, and helped further my options that I wasn't aware of.

2 College Sophomore

Party Scene: There are barely any parties that take place at my campus. If there are any parties, they would most likely happen in the dorms which is in someones room. If you know any commuters and are friends with them, you could go to their parties but as far as campus parties go, it's rare.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: I personally like the breakfast foods that my campus has. They will ask you what you want and you can have a variety from omelets, pancakes, french toast, waffles, etc and all fresh. The dinning hall is quite large which is a good thing because sometimes it does fill up. At my school, we do offer a meal plan, and or you could just buy the food with your "LionsCash" or pay with your debit card, your own money, etc.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on campus is not so bad. I feel that the dorms could be larger, and more spacious throughout the campus as well. The amenities in the dorms are excellent. The social atmosphere on campus is very friendly. Everyone talks to everyone and we all help each other out in every different way that we can. The cost to dorm is not as pricy as I thought it would be. I am an out of state student so to dorm was a must for me and I am satisfied with the price. The housing process was vrey smooth, and it was organized.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love my college experience

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: They have the same options everyday but for a picky eater like myself I do not complain!

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Our campus is very safe!

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I wish I could've received more but i found more opportunities which made the cost of going to college a little bit easier.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: It's a lot of different options for off campus housing. Its cheaper to live off campus, but they're no public transportation near by.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: So far it's a good experience. I love the small class sizes.

College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I plan on transferring next year to the main campus or Altoona.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: They girls on campus are pretty much stuck up they still have the high school mentality so they're a lot of cliques which can ruin a lot of social events. The Guys are OK, they're less petty than the girls but they also stay in cliques.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There's 6 food places that are close to campus. Mcdonalds, Sheetz, 2 Diners and 2 Chinese Restaurants. There are more in the area you just need transportation to get there. Sheetz is one of the best places to go to because its open 24 hours and you can get discounts on a lot of their items.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Its very cool! It's not like living in a traditional dorm, you're actually living in an apartment. 3 BR 2 BA a kitchen and a Living room/Dining room. You can either have a single, or you can have a roommate. Which means you can have up to 6 housemates, it depends on who requests a single. The dorms can be clean it just depends on how clean you and your housemates are.

2 College Sophomore

Local Area: The Locals don't really like us there. There's no museums or cultural attractions, nor is there any nightlife or fun activities to do. For shopping there's a small shopping center about 10 mins away from the campus, it's also the berkshire mall about 45 mins away from campus.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: So far I've had to participate in focus groups and Labs. We'll see what this upcoming year has to bring!

2 College Sophomore

Administration: At the campus they don't really treat the students as college students, it feels as though we're kind of still like high school students. Knowing that they're isn't a lot of nightlife outside of campus the main goal of the campus police or safety officers are to break up the parties or fun. Then when the school tries to throw a party they wonder why nobody shows up.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: The athletics at the school can be better, a lot of people come to support and a lot of people do try out to play its just that we can still improve on how we play!
