5 College Freshman

Academics: There is a very reasonable workload at PSU.

4 College Junior

Academics: There's so many things offered and we are constantly expanding what we provide to students. The professors are typically nice and helpful if you approach them in the right manner, but if you approach them in a rude way they will probably give your attitude right back at you. Registering for classes is pretty easy, they made the process even easier the last couple of years. If you need a place to study, go to the Axe Library because there are so many places to sit down and study but also go to the Student Center because there are tons of comfy chairs to sit in and get a good study going. The work load for classes really depends on the class and the professor.
