    Penn State Harrisburg is a close-knit community of the academically, athletically, musically, and artistically inclined. The professors are fantastic-each and every one is devoted to helping students grow as individuals, and embrace oftentimes unknown talents and skills. Though it may be considered a shadow compared to the main campus in State College, the pride of Penn State Harrisburg is its wide range of academic programs, culturally diverse atmosphere, and supportive environment.

    Academic wise, classes are challenging but you learn a lot. School life there are a lot of clubs and activities, but there is not much to do on the campus itself; the town it is located in is not that great. If you don't have a car, it can get very boring on campus and especially on the weekends since only 500 people live on campus.

    It's a great school if you don't want to go bigger than what you had in high school, but if not then University Park is where you want to be! The university has so many opportunities for you to get involved in. It definitely opens up all your options for you.
