I love Penn State New Kensington, because of the understanding professors, activities, and the small campus life style.
I like the close campus, which saves on gas now.
I love that it's easy to make friends and then you have someone to talk to as you go through the college experience

Penn State New Kensington is a smaller branch campus of Penn State University. It is basically a commuters college, with minimal living space. Even though we do not all live together, however, the school is it's own tiny flourishing community, and we are all like family.
