Penn State Mont Alto is a beautiful school and i cant wait to go there. I've learned so much just going there and talking to the advisors and the financial aid Mr's. Gilland. This college has one of the most percentages of graduates and one of the least percentages of transfer and dropouts. I'm extremely happy to be accepted to this school and can't wait to start this fall.

Pennsylvania State University-Penn State Mont Alto is very small personal school. It is easy to develop a relationship with your professors because of the small class sizes. I also find the Academic Support Center very helpful because you able to recieve tutoring and a quiet place to complete homework assignments.
