    Mont Alto's usually a calm, quiet school. Just about everyone gets along, and most people know each other in some way. It's also a very small school that doesn't require a lot of travelling between courses, but it lacks a lot of major courses in general.

    This campus is super small and the acceptance rate is very high. This makes academic rigor non-existent and campus life is also nonexistent as well. Not a good penn state school, should have left the land to the trees. No other Penn State campus really knows we exist. We are.. the fake Penn State

    This school is a roller coaster ride. If you are just looking for an education, it is a great place. If you are looking for anything else, look away.

    Penn State Mont Alto is a great school that is tucked away in Franklin County. The campus is small, and everyone is friendly. You will have to work hard in all of your classes, but it will definately pay off in the long run.

    Small-campus with a nice atmosphere. There's only 2 main buildings where classes are held, so it's pretty hard to get lost. A great campus for the college student transitioning right out of high school.

    Penn State Mont Alto is a great campus to begin your college experience at. The campus offers small class sizes, very helpful professors, and many opportunities you can not experience at other colleges. The Mont Alto campus is a small and personable campus that is a good to begin at as a step to moving to University Park.

    Mont Alto is a small campus for those who'd rather attend a less crowded atmosphere. The students and staff are very helpful and they are also great listeners. Everything is close by and you won't have any trouble fitting in.
