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!
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.
I am writing to you with the experience as a Freshman. My experience at the Lock Haven University has been wonderful. I enjoy the everyday adventures. Coming into this school I was very nervous. A new beginning. I never wanted to leave home. I was afraid I wouldn’t meet anyone. This school opened my eyes to embrace change and to becoming independent. I'm currently living in a dorm on campus and away from home. As days went on I enjoyed it. I interacted with my neighbors. I love this school because it is a place where I can enjoy my life with friends, and focus on my school work. My classes here are such a perfect size, not too big. They are perfect and comfortable. I enjoy going to the classroom where the professors know your name, this makes me feel so happy knowing they took the time to remember. Lock Haven is a place that gives me a stage to improve.
