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.

    This is a school if you want to get your quality education and at the same time, find your own passion for life. This school is not only conducive environmentally especially for students, both locals and internationals, but also very supportive of your race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation. One more thing, State College is very safe even in the middle of the night if you want to walk home from library, no worries, more studies!
