Get involved with organizations and clubs! You'll make a lot of new friends and become a more well rounded student. Also, prepare for a VERY long winter; it starts to snow in October! Finally, don't overload on courses, you have 4 or even 5 years to complete your undergraduate degree.

    When I first went to visit, I immediately fell in love with this campus. It is not too big, nor too small. It is the perfect size for me.

    Penn State Erie has a strong focus on STEM fields and you probably won't make it our of there without knowledge of mechanics and electricity. I think it would be worth while to attend this branch campus instead of the main university park campus because Erie is slightly cheaper and it provides many of the engineering and science classes that you will need anyway. Penn State Behrend also has the most choice in terms of degree selection.

    Penn State has been a great way to introduce me the college life. The classes, campus, and students are a great fit for someone not looking for a large campus.

    It is a highly motivating campus. The teacher-student relationship potential is wonderful if you are interested in creating a bond with a knowledgeable mentor. Also, the student body is very accepting of the numerous cultures represented on campus.

    Penn State Behrend may not be as big as University park, or offer as much activities, but in terms of academics, Behrend offers a much more decent setting to learn. The facilities and some of the classrooms aside from the library are open overnight so that students may always have a comfortable setting to study. The teachers are also easy to meet with and work with since the classroom sizes are moderate or at least much smaller than the ones presented on the main campus.

    College has been a challenge trying to stay focused with so much around me to do. Classes are much bigger than my high school classes so paying attention is a little harder. Also living on campus keeps me close to professors and tutors so i can receive extra help.
