Kutztown University of Pennsylvania Reviews
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.
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 things I liked about Kutztown University was the atmosphere, the food, and the athletic program. The atmosphere that is created on Kutztown is funny, inviting, and even loving. Everyone is welcome when it comes to tutors, study groups, clubs, even sports. There are so many activities to do all over the campus. There is even a week called "Bear Fest", which is a whole week, during finals week in spring semester, dedicated to calming students and getting them out of the library to socialize. The food at Kutztown is amazing. There are two main dining halls, South and Cub, a Chick-Fil-A and a Starbucks on campus. The last thing is the athletic program. Kutztown University does not offer every sport, but the sports it does offer are excellent. The athletic program is like one enlarged family. Everyone supports each other and represents our school to the best of their ability. I have no complaints about Kutztown because the tuition is only 20,000+/- a year.
