What Students Are Saying

3.68 Average Rating
College isn't as scary as people make it out to be. Always remember to stay organized. Get a calendaror white board to write down your scheduled dates for homework and papers due. You will get out of this school what you put in.
Caitlin from Lewisville, PA
Always keep this in mind; You are here for your education, not for anything else. I realize it is fun once in a while to go out and have a good time, however don't let this take over your life. A few of my own friends have made the mistake of enjoying college a little too much and now completely regret it. Not only have they lowered their gpa, but they are on academic probation and were kicked out of their own majors, as well as losing friends due to inappropriate actions while intoxicated. Be smart, not dumb!
Chelsea from Laurys Station, PA
For any student whom wants to attend Kutztown, I wish you luck, and highly recommend it. The biggest tip I have that I could share with a prospective student is to try their best to come to school without any form of prejudices, or prejudgments on what college is all about; leave the stereotypes behind and take advantage of meeting new people whom will become your lifetime friends.
Janaya from Northumberland, PA
The best tip is to check the background of your potential instructors and talk to those students who have taken the class. It could help you pass with flying colors or fail miserably
Rodney from Philadelphia, PA
I would go here if you like outsdoors things and for a peaceful time. There is of course the party scene but not everyone goes out and if you're into that then it definitely has that side as well. All in all is is a well balanced school and i think that anyone would feel welcome at Kutztown.
Thomas from West Lawn, PA
There are guided tours available if you're interested in this university. Come to the campus in person and see for yourself. It's located in rather a rural setting. So if you love the city life, this may not be the place for you.
Jayaruwan from Sri Lanka
Get involved in something you care about as soon as possible. Make friends, put yourself out there, and don't be afraid to talk to people! Especially professors!!
Kelly from Allentown, PA
Definitely search around before you make a final decision. Don't ever settle for something for any other reason than because you truly want to.
Donielle from Shoemakersville, PA
For incoming freshman, my advice to you is get involved as much as possible. Not only do you make friends, you will also be less homesick and enjoy being at school more. For first generation college students, I would advise you to get involved with a program that I am currently in called SSSP. It is to help with the transition into college and will help you throughout the couple years you are here. They will help you with picking classes and develop many skills, such as time management, which is very important. They also give some scholarships out and the best part about being involved with SSSP is you receive early registration, which allows you to pick classes about a week or so before everyone enrolled at Kutztown. This is great because it pretty much guarantees you the classes you want for the next semester.
Sarah from Dunmore, PA
If you did well in high school I would look into the honors program. You get preferred scheduling and with the number of students that Kutztown has it is hard for freshman to get into the courses they need
