I am a freshman at Kutztown University and right now I am in my second semester. The professors are wonderful. They are passionate and want to help you and see you succeed. The campus is beautiful and I feel very safe walking around. I think both cafeterias are excellent and there are so many choices, including a sushi bar! I live on campus in Dixon Hall and it is extremely nice, the dorms are suite-style and the whole building is secure and airconditioned. My favorite part of the campus has to be the student recreation center. The fitness center is my absolute favorite place to go and it is packed with any machine that you could want. Also inside the rec center is an awesome rock wall, some courts, an indoor track and a smoothie bar! I spend most of my time here and I love having it just a walking distance away from my room. So far Kutztown has been great!

The professors seem to genuinely care about students and want to help. Those in the History Department are especially friendly. Courses are fast paced, as are all universities so be prepared. Food could be better, although there is a ChickFilA on campus! Dorms could use some work in the cleanliness department as well.
I am Music Education Major. The music program is out of this world! Very talented and professional groups with many opportunities. I am part of both of the two jazz bands and they both are performing at levels that many other collegiate bands couldn't get to. The student's that are involved with music are all very supportive and make a great impact on others, it feels like a family. Aside from the music department, it has many other added benefits. For example, the dining halls have recently been renovated to everything is up to date. Some people picture college and not so good food together but the school offers a large variety of meals to choose from, not to mention that one of the dining hall's is open all day and night! Getting midnight waffles with friends is alway's an experience. At the university you aren't just a number in a classroom, you are able to make a name for yourself and mold your future.
