Kutztown University's biology department puts a strong focus on hands-on lab experience and direct education. Each classroom size is small, allowing all PhD professors access to and time for close interaction with each student. This personal classroom experience helps foster positive relationships between the dedicated faculty and each student, which helps ease the learning process exponentially. Campus life is active and thriving and the small-town feel is a comfort for students away from home for the first time. Off-campus apartments are plentiful, everything is conveniently within walking distance for students, and Allentown, Reading, and Philadelphia are a fairly close drive for any greater needs.
