What Students Are Saying

3.70 Average Rating
Time management is key to being successful in any school, but especially at this campus, there are a ton of distractions. Get involved with what Berks has to give. Network with all your professors, this helps with recommendations, scholarships,grants, internships, and more. Make sure to complete all work before its due it makes it easier for you to do activity work with your group, your team,or just hanging out with your friends. Follow all rules because when you break you will get in trouble. Last but not least enjoy college, but make sure you make your parents proud because WE ARE....Penn State!!!!!!

Talk to your advisors. They can help you with scheduling your classes in the most efficient ways (which courses count as credit for two different requirements, which ones are on the same days, etc) and with choosing which major might be best for you.
