Most Helpful Review for Penn State University

Penn State is a first class University. Professors are both well informed and intriguing. Even the biggest lecture classes can seem like an engaging one on one meeting. The class listings also are very various and allow for much customization in the college experience. Ine general professors and advisers seem to genuinely care about my progress. The only con I find is that since the school is so large many of the courses fill up quickly so stay on your toes.

    It's a beautiful campus that is particularly great for anyone who enjoys the outdoors. Year round sports, agriculture majors, and Mount Nittany's great scenery makes any outdoor lover a perfect fit.
