Penn State Schuylkill is a great campus, which has a lot to offer. Its not such a big campus but this is great for incoming students,who may not be ready for the conditions of attending a big campus.
Amina from Montclair, NJ
Pennsylvania State University-Penn State Schuylkill is a wonderful community atmosphere with a beautiful focus on individual attention, research, and academic integrity. All of the professors take the time to get to know students on a personal level which flourishes networking. Also there is much help in preparing for the next phase of your academic careers.
