Kutztown University of Pennsylvania Reviews
I am a Junior at Kutztown University of Pennsylvania. I love The classes, professors, faculty and food! Its a beautiful area with lots of surrounding land. I love all the programs that they offer as well as an immense amount of clubs/ activities. It really gives you a chance to get involved. I love that they have a Starbucks on campus because I love coffee! Overall there was a diversity of classes. They were all really great especially marine science classes. I was able to ride in a boat for the first time and it was an awesome experience! So far, my experience here has been amazing and have no complaints!
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!
Wonderful institution. Classes challenge you to think about the world around you and critically analyze aspects of your field. Staff and faculty are almost invariably friendly and approachable. Library provides a lot of research/support services while keeping a homey small-town feel. Love the fact that they have a resource center for LGBTQ+ students. Large weekend party scene with fraternity, off-campus apartment, and bar options. Biggest complaint is that the university has cut student success and library staffing since I have started as a student, despite instituting a student success fee. Also safety score is lowered due to "Hawkinson's Folly" in reopening campus during COVID.
