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.
Kutztown University has amazing professors and staff. The classes you will take are instructed by educated professionals who care about your academic success. I personally would attribute my success at Kutztown to my professors, who made sure their classes were understandable and relatable. They constantly asked for feedback about their teaching during the semester not just in a mandatory class evaluation survey at the end of the semester. The places for improvement would be in student life. The energy of the students at events and athletics is not as enthusiastic as I'd hope. There are school events but not many people support them consistently which can make the campus seem boring at times. Overall it is a great school to attend and though it is not perfect if you find things you like to do on the campus the experience is priceless.
