    I would say personal research and proactive studying plays a large role in your success in the courses at Mont Alto and any Penn State college. It's not easy to skimp out on the material and try to pass by winging the tests, especially if the courses have classwork as well. Also, if you're planning on joining a club or activity, they will have notices all throughout the year, from when you first bring your bags to a month or so before the school-year ends. Since there aren't a whole lot of students on campus, there's no real rush to get signed up for everything, even a job at the cafeteria, which is never fully staffed. I still wouldn't put getting signed up off for too long, though, and pretty much everyone on campus is friendly (they have to be in such a small place), so it won't be hard to make acquaintances with the people here. The RA (Residence Assistant) on your floor is a student will help you with any of the problems you're having with your room or the people on your floor--you should try to make friends with them before anyone, and they're naturally friendly.

    DO NOT GO HERE!!!! PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF YOUR SANITY AND YOUR FUTURE BANK ACCOUNT AND INTELLECT. This campuses acceptance rate is too high and we all suffer with mediocre mental stimulation because the average student cannot handle the academic rigor of college. Hence why they are at this campus. The AP and IB programs in high school are way more challenging than this campus. They don't even take that many IB/AP scores, so essentially you can be forced to stay down here for your 2 years and suffer. I gave this campus a shot but I hate to be negative but this is honestly realistic. This is why I am transferring to University of Maryland

    Some tips for prospective students. Do not get into a relationship while living on campus. The campus life frowns upon couples, and it is very hard to maintain a relationship with that weight. Also, avoid Mont Alto Hall at all costs. It is the most ghetto housing you could possibly choose. Although it is the cheapest, you definitely give up a lot choosing this. Finally, be involved. Join all of the clubs you can (even though there are about 3 campus wide), and go to all of the activities you can make it to.
