PSWS has had a positive influence on my freshmen year college experience. The entire campus is a family with open arms to anyone that stops by whether they are a potential or current student or a visitor. The faculty and staff go above and beyond when it comes to supporting students. I appreciated that the school has a food bank for struggling students who may need some extra food at home. I also enjoyed the activities that brought everyone together on and off campus, such as the annual Halloween trip to Hershey park and the performances in the café. I don't regret my decision to attend PSWS not just because of the Penn State name, but because I feel that this school is the perfect size and fit for me. I feel extremely comfortable and happy here.

Overall Penn State Worthington is a great school to start off with. Small classes which helps me concentrate a lot better to do well in school. Variety of classes to choose from and helpful teachers that are willing to help you out. I would defiantly recommend this school to anyone who wants to have small classes.

Worthington is a small commuter campus, so it's definitely different from universities that are primarily residential. You need to be aware of this when making your decision so you don't have unrealistic expectations. Students attend their classes and then go home, making it more like high school in that aspect. During the day you'll find students hanging out in the cafeteria or library, but other than that there really aren't a ton of places to hang out. However, I have found the staff on campus to be helpful and easily accessible. As with any school, you have some professors you like and some you don't. If you are looking for a school in your area to commute to, I would definitely recommend Worthington because you get the benefit of a well-known university with a cheaper price tag, at least to start out. You always have the option of transferring to a different PSU campus after 2 years, which is what most students do. If you are looking for the typical college experience with dorms and on-campus partying, this school is not for you.
