Lock Haven University Reviews
I attended Lock Haven University in the 90s. I enjoyed the small town atmosphere. It was a safe environment and easy access to the buildings. Lock Haven provided me with a degree in Mass Communications and Spanish. The teachers were great. Recently, I attended an open house with my son. I was impressed with the food and all the new updates they had throughout the campus. It is still a great place to attend!
My Experience at Lock Haven University has been amazing so far. The professors, coaching staff, and the students are so nice and respectful. They care about their students here and make sure that all the students are aware of what is happening around us. Its becoming more diverse than what it used to be which is great because many people who come here arent scared to show what they believe in or who they worship. Its great that they have so many groups of activites. They are just amazing all around.
Lock Haven Clearfield campus is perfect if you are looking for a small campus. However, recourses are limited at Clearfield. If you have online classes, you never meet your professors unless you make the drive up to main campus, which is about an hour and fifteen minutes from the Clearfield campus. The main focus at Clearfield campus is criminal justice and nursing. If you don't fall into that category, chances are you'll have to transfer to main campus at some point. I do feel that Clearfield campus is a nice transition from high school to college. It allows you to get a feel for what college is really like.
