Kutztown University of Pennsylvania Reviews
I love Kutztown University! My freshman year went very well, and I'm excited for my sophomore year! Kutztown offers a variety of clubs, sports, and organizations to to make getting involved on campus easy. The professors I've had so far truly care about the students and are willing to assist them in any way they can. If you'd prefer a college that offers mostly small class sizes, the opportunity to build beneficial relationships with your professors, and a friendly community of students on a beautiful campus, Kutztown University is the place for you! The only critique I have is that it is centered in a very small town, and outside of that town is a lot farmland. So if you'd prefer going to a college in a big town or city, you might want to rethink coming here. Otherwise, I have no complaints about this university!
The academics are very good. Diversity is high. Athletics are fairly successful. Most of the professors are super friendly, intelligent, and just want to see you succeed. Dorms are well kept and comfortable. Safety is okay as there are many blue emergency buttons. You get a lot for what you pay for at KU. The campus is absolutely beautiful. The town outside of campus is a wonderful place to walk around and grab a bite to eat. The campus food in the two dining halls is pretty good. The student life is great as they have over 250 clubs, so there's something for everyone! Highly recommended. It is my favorite home away from home.
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!
