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.

    It's an excellent school if you're willing to do the work. Definitely not for students who aren't self-motivated. The administration sucks, and they'll fight you on everything.

    Penn State Erie-The Behrend college is a school that will challenge you academically, socially, and mentally in the best ways possible. It is a school that demands all-nighters and weeds out procrastination. This will not be the easiest four years of your life, but they will be the best.

    Behrend is a small campus that allows you to get to classes quickly. There are multitudes of activities to do around here ranging from hiking to gaming. It's an awesome school to attend if you want pretty good one on one attention with teachers.

    Penn State became my home at Behrend, staff and school mates are friendly and teachers are more than willing to help and advise students on how to do better and make changes. I have made so many connections and had so many experiences that I would never change for the world that I was given at Behrend. I love the school and the people who make it worth wile.

    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.
