Will learn a lot
After visiting campus, I am nearly 100% satisified with the available programs. In addition to the available programs, Lock Haven offers a small, yet welcoming campus with fewer than average class sizes compared to other colleges and universities. Small class size gives more student/teacher interaction that will assist in the learning process.
Will enjoy being here
Campus life seems to be very welcoming. With many different clubs, organizations, on-campus jobs, and other opportunities for students, I can't see myself losing interest in my education or stay on campus at Lock Haven.
Bang for the buck
College isn't cheap, I think everyone could agree on that for the most part. However, I will say that Lock Haven ranks among the most affordable considering what they have to offer.
Tips for prospective students
If Lock Haven ranks among your top choices for college, I strongly encourage you continue to research each college and visit them as well. Choosing a college will be much easier for schools that you have both visited and researched.
Great for these types of students
If you are a student who is looking for a great future and is willing to do the necessary work for four years to achieve your goals, this college will be great for you. If you're interested in a lot of peer-to-peer and teacher/student interaction, Lock Haven offers nothing short of that. They have promised all of their students as much support as can possibly be administered not only before and during school, but afterwards as well when you are ready to pursue a job in your field.

Am learning a lot
After coming straight off of high school I didn't exactly know what to expect from college, but Lock Haven certainly set the bar high. Yes, there are a few professors who are just there to earn a paycheck, but there are also those who love what they do and are excited to teach it to you.
Am enjoying being here
For me, the saving grace was joining a club that required it's members to come in a week or two before school actually started. It helped me to make friends and learn how to make my way around campus. But even after school started, the school made it an enjoyable experience by making sure that there is plenty to do.
Tips for prospective students
Join clubs and don't be afraid to go out and try different activities. There is so much to do academically, but Lock Haven also provides so much to do extracurricularly. Don't be afraid to talk to people and make friends, it will help make your experiences the best years of your lives!
Great for these types of students
Well I don't exactly know what these types of students would prefer, but I do recommend that English majors consider this school, there are some really cool professors here!

Classes at Lock Haven University seem to be top notch; the professors are caring and experienced in their fields, program administrators are courteous and more than willing to help with anything, and the subject matter is in depth with no cut corners. The professors are not only approachable, but they will approach their students with great opportunities, academic or not.
Am enjoying being here
It being summer, I cannot wait until I return for the fall. The friends I have met there will definitely be so for my entire life, and the community is outstanding. A small town filled with natural beauty and kind people, Lock Haven provides a hometown feeling with its local restaurants, stores, and activities. Campus is clean, very safe, and very welcoming!
Bang for the buck
I can honestly say that Lock Haven University, being one of the Pennsylvania State Schools, is one of the cheapest institutions in Pennsylvania that offers a high quality education that will help its students compete in the job market.
Tips for prospective students
Dont' let the bland website fool you! Lock Haven is really an exciting place full of great, small-town people and a high quality education.
Great for these types of students
Lock Haven University is great for anybody who is used to a small town lifestyle and smaller class sizes.

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!
Tips for prospective students
A few tips for prospective students would be to apply early so you have a higher chance of acceptance and try and have an interesting application because the Admissions office looks at thousands of applications a year, be sure you have something special in there that sparks their interest!
Academic Rigor
Lock Haven University takes great pride in its ability to educate young men and women and prepare them for their future in the real world. The smaller class sizes give students more of an opportunity to learn and the brilliance of the faculty enhances the experience further. As a student, one will feel strong in their education here at LHU.
Dorm Life
Dorm life at LHU is my favorite part about school! This is where you meet your friends that will become you're life long companions! Everyday is made brighter by your floor mates and you'll start to see them less as peers and more as family throughout the year!
Food and Dining
Bentley has great food! With a wide variety of different items a student can find just about whatever's appealing to their appetite! Also, the Starbucks in Lower Bentley is a great place if you need a pick-me-up or nice place to study.
What to do for fun
With a large range of clubs and activities, there's always something fun to do at LHU! Not a club person? We have a movie theater and stores to shop around in downtown Lock Haven. If you're more the outdoorsy type we have the Susquehanna right beside campus, an excellent place for hiking, fishing, or just a stroll along the Levee. We also have the Rec center which is open every day, student can play a variety of sports, work out or climb our 30 ft rock wall for fun!
Bang for the buck
Lock Haven University is just what every college should be. High quality AFFORDABLE education. It's absolutely the perfect place to be for a great learning experience without burning a hole in your pocket!
Great for these types of students
Lock Haven is perfect for the inquisitive learner. With small class sizes and an at home feel, students feel less pressure to compete with peers and feel more at ease to ask questions.
Clubs and Activities
We have over 100 clubs and activities as well as Greek life! If you want to make a club of your own the University gives you an opportunity to do just that! Just get involved, it makes college THAT much better!
Greek Life
Greek Life is always an exciting part of our college, we have a variety of sororities and fraternities that always work hand in hand to make the school a better place!
Campus Safety
LHU security fits the needs of the students well. We have blue light buttons that contact campus security in every dorm and building on campus, we have ID scanners that will only work on IDs of that particular dorm, our campus security is always mobile, and we are in a small town with a very low crime rate. Students are extremely safe here at LHU!
