Am learning a lot
Although Penn State Beaver is a branch campus you still receive the same quality Penn State University education. There are a great variety of courses offered on campus and with fewer students on campus you have smaller class sizes. Even classes not pertaining to your major can be fun and may lead to a change of major. The professors here take time to help struggling students and truly care about their student's success.
Am enjoying being here
I love Penn State Beaver! There are always activities to participate in including movie nights, concerts, etc. There are so many organizations to become a part of such as THON, Alpha Phi Omega, flag football, game club, and many more. It is impossible to ever be bored when you're on campus.
Bang for the buck
At Penn State Beaver it is possible to get a quality education for less. By choosing Penn State Beaver and commuting to school for my first two years I am saving about $20,000.
Tips for prospective students
It's all about the experience and the experience you have depends on one person...YOU. Get involved with clubs, study groups, sports, anything to start meeting new people and take advantage of the classes Penn State Beaver has to offer. You might just find a new interest.
Great for these types of students
Penn state Beaver is great for students who want the big name school and education but are not decided on a major. There are so many exploratory classes to take from the arts and history to science and literature. Career counselors are always there to help you sort it out and find where you belong. For those who are not yet ready to leave home Penn State Beaver is the perfect place to start. It's close enough and far enough from home whether you decide to stay or commute. For those who fear meeting new people and making new friendships a lot of students from local high schools find there way here so you most likely will know someone. The students, professors, advisers, and staff are friendly and want your experience at Penn State Beaver to be the absolute best!

Your professors care about YOU. Since it's a branch campus, you still get the Penn State experience, but with smaller class sizes, and more individual help.

All your friends are here! Whether you meet people from a rival high school, or halfway across the world, you'll enjoy your experience at Penn State Beaver. The classes are tough, but it pays off big time!
Bang for the buck
Since it's a branch campus, you still get the Penn State stamp of approval, but for a lot less. It's great!
Tips for prospective students
If you plan on attending Penn State Beaver, don't slack off. Many people think that since it's a branch campus, it's not as difficult, but that's not true. It's a great school, and you should come prepared for it.
