Central Penn is the perfect pick for me.
It's super small but it has a beautiful campus and great people. You make personal relationships with the professors and staff. It's easy to meet people, make friends, and the internships are great. I'm a commuter but the food is pretty good and the dorms are spacious. The clubs and activities are lots of fun!

I am currently in my second year at Central Penn. I am majoring in Business Administration with a concentration in Health Care. I work full time and am a full time online student. I have been completely satisfied with the administration, professors, and classmates as all encourage success. The online program is convenient and easy to navigate.
I like how the class sizes at Central Penn College are fairly small. There aren't really any large lecture halls. This enables the students to have a better relationship with each professor. I think that Central Penn College could improve on its club sports offerings as they are pretty slim. Overall, Central Penn College offers a great learning experience.
