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.

    Penn State UP is a campus with a multitude of opportunities, delicious food, and a million cafes. There are clubs for almost everything; and often times they offer special events that are open to nonmembers. Moreover, the university takes precautions to keep its students safe, such as the escort system and the alerts given to students regarding crimes on campus, although unsurprisingly, "dry campus" doesn't actually mean there aren't plenty of people drinking on campus.
