What Students Are Saying

3.69 Average Rating
Penn State Behrend is great its big enough to offer a lot of things smaller campuses can't while still being small enough for a lot of individual attention. The staff is always very nice and helpful. It's always a fun time there, Can't wait to go back in the fall.
Jacob from Mars, PA
The class sizes are perfect, not too big and not too small! Both the students and professors are very kind and helpful. Also, the classes are great, they really prepare you for after college.
