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!

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!
Central Penn College is a very good college to get in and out with your intended degree. Sports are not very available here, nor are many clubs or activities. This is a very small based college, much like a community college. Suites are available and new to students. Campus is also very diverse.
