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!

Warm, welcoming community! Very helpful counselors to guide you through applying, and the acceptance routine!
If you're looking for a party school, this is not it. If you're looking for a focused, private, on the small side institution of higher learning, you have hit the nail on the head!
