Kutztown is such an amazing school! The campus is kind of in the middle of nowhere so if you want a place with off campus activities other than sitting in a corn field, then this probably isn't the place for you. But if you like corn, great! There are still many fun and engaging on campus activities to take part in. Most classes have around 25 students in them so its not hard to get help from your professor when you feel lost. All the professors are so helpful and so willing to help you exceed in your work. The only thing that is slightly irritating is that our grading system does not let you see your current grades. You can only check them when the semester is over, which isn't really helpful. Of course, you could always set up an appointment with your professors to see how you are doing, but tat tends to be a struggle when you are dealing with many classes. Other than that, Kutztown is amazing! Go golden bears!

The education program at Kutztown is absolutely excellent! I honesty could not ask for any better way to prepare to be a future teacher. Along with education, Kutztown offers wonderful music, business, and pre-med programs just to name a few. Some of the other wonderful parts of this school is the ability to get involved on campus and in the community. Kutztown University hosts the Eastern Spring Sectional for Special Olympics which is a wonderful opportunity to get involved, not to mention a tremendous resume builder. There are a great amount of clubs to join and many opportunities to start a club of your own. KU also has a great, involved, and close-knit greek life. There are so many wonderful things about this school and I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to receive a top quality education with numerous opportunities to get involved.
Kutztown University was a great place to be! I enjoyed 4 years there and don't have many complaints. My one complaint would be that administration can be disorganized and the website often had wrong information. Often times letters were sent out with incorrect dates, etc... But I loved my time as a student there and made great memories. Great food in town and campus food isn't horrible either (I had a meal plan for 4 years, even living off campus).
