Lock Haven University Reviews
Review Lock Haven University
My overall experience at Lock Haven has been great! I first starting focusing on schooling when I first got here but now that I've been here for a bit now I've spread myself out more. I've gotten a job on campus as a student ambassador and i'm part of the Big Brother Big Sister Program here in Clinton County. This school is very unique because it has it's only little perfect features to it. The nature is a big one of those features, including the many walking trails. Not only that but being close to your professor helps only so many levels. Due to having that small amount of students its nice to truly know your professor and them know you as well! I would never pick to go anywhere else.
The scenery is second-to-none. The big university style is felt in some classes, it is definatly important to get to know the professors, that is something with which I struggled and it made it harder to succeed. It is great how they try to implement major courses in a schedule right away, and the advisors help first semester freshman get involved. It is certainly a community feel around campus and in the town. It isn't really a rowdy atmosphere, it is very calm and a very good place for studying. I noticed many people have athletic-like majors, and their sports teams aren't great, but the atmosphere is improving. Overall, it is a home away from home, pretty quiet, but really focused on academics, be sure to not fall behind early. The professors are really knowledgeable, have good relations with the surrounding environment, and display good preparation for jobs.
Lock Haven is a great school academically and truly challenges students to improve through academics. Personally, I feel that money that the school receives could be better spent improving the inside of the buildings or updating some equipment rather than focusing on the exterior of buildings. Living here is a great experience, the dorms are comfortable. The town is a bit small but still has everything you could need. Overall a great school.
