What Students Are Saying

3.58 Average Rating
Lock Haven Unversity is a diverse learning environment filled with knowledgable and respectable faculty and staff. It is less like an educational facility and more like a home filled with friendly students who will become your best friends! LHU, or as we say, The Haven is also great because of its smaller class sizes which help students maintain focus as well as various clubs and organizations to become involved in!
