    Attend the new student orientation and let your professors help you schedule classes until you get used to doing it yourself. Get involved in as many activities as possible during Club Rush which is in the beginning of every semester or even start your own club if the specific thing you are looking for isn't available. Be social, try hard, talk to your professors and you will make it!

    Get involved; there are tons of clubs on campus that may spark your interest. Getting involved is the easiest way to make friends and for some events you can even win free cool prizes. I would also say not to be afraid to ask for help when needed. Professors are always there to help; they have office hours that you can attend if you need help. Also, take advantage of the Learning and Writing Center because it is available to students to use if they need help with academics or writing a paper.

    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.
