    Not Great, others may but i did not enjoy my time here! I did not like my professors and the other students were a little stuck up sometimes. Expensive!

    Close nit, close to home school that is built for you to succeed. There are so many fun things to do and opportunities to have fun while you do your school work. With small class sizes, you could never fail.

    I would say that Penn State New Kensington is a good place to attend if you are unsure of what you will be majoring in. Classes are generally small, the teachers are usually well qualified and interesting, and the school has a friendly atmosphere. For me, the only drawback is that the students here aren't as intelligent as I would like.

    I have had a great experience so far. I am a goalkeeper for their soccer team and we made it to the playoffs this year. The professors have been helpful and the classrooms are a nice size.

    Penn State New Kensington is a smaller branch campus of Penn State University. It is basically a commuters college, with minimal living space. Even though we do not all live together, however, the school is it's own tiny flourishing community, and we are all like family.
