Although this campus is smaller than Upark, I would have to say that it offers so much. You feel like a family when your on campus, there are many different people there so you get appreciate the different backgrounds. The teachers are very supportive, but you still get the regular college professors so your not missing out on that. Honestly I could go on forever about this campus, its amazing.
Food and Dining
The food is good it get boring sometimes because they sometimes serve the same thing over again but if you talk to the people that work there they will change things up.
What to do for fun
Since the city is only two hours away some people go to new York or go to the main penn state campus or people go to the movies, honestly there's plenty to do if your willing to be open minded about everything.

Penn State Hazleton has a lot to offer, from the physical campus itself to the faculty and staff. The students are just as helpful and very kind. In my eyes, this school is highly recommended.
Tips for prospective students
Anyone who is even thinking about going to Penn State Hazleton already has made a good choice. This school is good for on campus students and commuters. I am a commuter and enjoy going there everyday to take part in classes and the activities on campus.
Academic Rigor
The classes I have had and do have are up to the standards. They are different than high school classes which is expected and hold up to what should be taught. They aren't necessarily hard but the classes give you what you need to know. All of the teachers are helpful and there are also tutors for each class if needed.
Dorm Life
I myself do not live on campus but from what I hear, dorm life is nice.
Food and Dining
The food in the Butler building (the Cafe) is very good. They provide healthy food and a good amount of it for the price. They even have Starbucks for drinks and they make their own pastries.
What to do for fun
For fun there are many activities including exercising, walking in the woods by campus, taking part in bingo, and fundraisers. Yoga and Insanity takes place every week if not more, which will keep anyone busy.
Bang for the buck
This school is pretty cheap in my eyes and what you pay for you get. Not that you will be getting less for the price, but everyone you pay or will be a benefit to you. There is a bus that goes through campus and off campus, a library where you have printing privileges through your payment and many other things.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
A lot of the buildings on campus weren't built for the school and go back along time. They remained on the property and are used for offices and classrooms.
Clubs and Activities
There are a ton of activities and clubs on this campus and if there is something you aren't interesting in, you can create something of your own.
Campus Safety
The campus is very safe between the campus police and emergency booths throughout campus. If you ever have a problem you can contact the police on campus, or call 911 which will contact campus police right away. There are many emergency booths in case there is a problem, all you do is press a button and someone will be there asap.

Penn State Hazleton is a very fun school. It is the perfect balance of fun and work with out being overwhelmed. The staff is amazing and really treat you like family.
Tips for prospective students
If you are easily distracted by big Universities then this could be the school for you, being that it is a small to medium sized school means you get the attention you need when it comes to school work. It is a very nice and homey environment between friends and staff you will meet. It is a safe and fun place to grow and learn.
Academic Rigor
Penn State is definitely a challenge and not something that will just be breezed through. You will be working hard at Penn State to get good grades and you will need to attend class regularly and interact, be involved with your teachers and friends. Penn State Hazleton is small but it is easy to get left behind and fail if you do not work hard.
Dorm Life
Dorm life is very fun and a great way to meet people at your school. Having to live right next to your peers really pushes you to meet people even if you are shy or quiet. Penn State Hazleton dorms are as clean as it gets thanks to the amazing cleaning staff provided.
Food and Dining
Penn State Hazleton's cafeteria is pretty good they have different specials every day and the grill for your basics. Some favorites at Hazy are Wing Night, Chicken Tenders and Curly Fry night, not to mention the different pastas and meats. You can almost always find something that you'd like to eat!
What to do for fun
There is almost always something to do at Hazy for fun! Residence life always has fun events going on including things such as Crazy Bob's Giveaway where you can win anything from a box of crackers to an iPad! There are also different events like the Carnival or Cultural events in the academic buildings. Hazleton also lets you create your own events as long as it is safe. You can never get bored at Hazy!
Bang for the buck
As almost everyone knows college is very expensive and it almost doesn't make sense as to why it is as expensive as it is. Penn State Hazleton Is as fun as you make it, you make it your moneys' worth. Like anything it's in your hands.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
Hazleton doesn't have any unusual traditions or locations but they do have some nice scenery. Once up the hill there a very nice picnic areas and other places that look out down into the city and it can be very calming on those crazy midterms or finals weeks to just relax.
Great for these types of students
Penn State Hazleton is great if you are a student that needs more attention from their teachers, is distracted easily by big parties or Greek life.
Clubs and Activities
Penn State Hazleton offers so many clubs things like acting, drama, martial arts and almost anything else you can think of. Not to mention if there wasn't a club that you wanted you could create it and get your friends to join!
Greek Life
At Penn State Hazleton there is no Greek Life being that it is a smaller branch off of Main Campus.
Campus Safety
Campus saftey at Penn State Hazleton is very on point. There are always campus police who drive around campus at almost all times and if there wasn't anyone around there are safety posts where you could press a button that would call campus police and they would be there within minutes.
