    Penn State is a college for people who likes small classes. This campus is easy to adapt to. Future students would love it here. For the dorm life, my advice to you guys is to set rules with your roommate the day you meet your roommate so that you won't get annoyed with your roommate.

    The best tip I can give for anyone who wants to attend Penn State Berks is to attend orientation weekend because a lot of helpful information about navigating college is found there. Also, college is your education and you must take charge of how you want to live your life. Penn State Berks opens many doors for you - but you must look for them.

    This school is really helpful for high school dual enrollment; I wanted to take a few courses that my high school doesn't offer in AP or honors level, and this school was really perfect for that. So even if you aren't interested in attending this school after you graduate, using the courses offered here during high school really helps you look good to other colleges! Also, you get 50% off the normal price for classes you register for as high school dual enrollment (but no financial aid). This college is definitely good for students who want to stay close to home or commute. Also, admissions to this place is pretty easy- just get a 1000 (CR&M) and have a good GPA and you are pretty much guaranteed acceptance.

    Do your research and don't be intimated by the big name of Penn State. You do not need a laptop but I like having my own so I do not have to share. Also if you have the option to commute...do it! Save money and you won't be bored on weekends. BUT!!! For being a commuter school, I do not think it is very commuter friendly...so be warned.

    Make sure you time manage! It is critically important to use your time wisely and have set goals to conquer. There will be time to have fun, but finish what you started first or else you will regret it in the future; you don't want to procrastinate therefore I highly recommend obtaining an agenda/planner.
