    I pay 28000 to go to this campus and I honestly feel like they should be paying me to live here and go here. I had to move to this campus for population and housing reasons at University Park where I was originally accepted however, when I try to get moved up or threaten to transfer, my response is as follows You forfeited your right to go to University Park once you accepted to go to Mont Alto for a year. Please for the love of god, do not fall for that trap, they keep you for a year. But the add another year, as well as the 2-3 semesters you get put behind for your major because the classes are not offered here for your major and the admissions is so low, you cannot get funding for these classes. Some professors are in it to keep kids all 4 years at Mont Alto rather than get moved up to University Park where they belong. There is an intricate system with Penn State and the only way to succeed is if you start at main campus. If not, you will fall behind and suffer, and you will know it.

    I feel that Mont Alto is comparable to the other colleges in the area. I don't agree that you should have to pay an activities fee if you don't live on campus and participate in any of the activities that they offer, but you can't really do anything about that.

    I think the education at Penn State Mont Alto is very good for the price of tuition, class sizes are small, professors know their students on a personal level, and there are many options for students who need help in classes or their personal life.
