Lock Haven University Reviews
Lock Haven is a great school with great professors. They also have a great education program in which I am in. It is very easy to make new friends at this school. I have had nothing but great experiences here! There are many different programs and clubs to join, teachers are always willing to help you. There is also a tutoring center that can help all students with classes they are struggling in. If you are lost or need help with anything, everyone is very open and is willing to help anyone.
Love the flow of the campus. Coming out of a small high school, Lock Haven made if very easy for me to adjust to the college life. I am a member of the volleyball team so I am pretty involved as far as being a student athlete goes. Everyone at Lock Haven is super friendly and if you are involved with campus activities you should have no problem meeting new faces! The professors are very understanding when you have to miss class because of competition and games. Class sizes are on the smaller sizes so it makes it very easy to build a good relationship with the professors. President Pigmatello is very involved with the campus and students!
I love Lock Haven University because it's a small school and that's what works for me the best. The student to teacher ratio is about 30:1 so it makes it easy to build a relationship with your professor, therefore improving your studies. I'm enrolled in the Sport Administration program and there have been so many opportunities for me. For example, since I've been at LHU my classmates have gone to the NCAA Division 1 Football Championship to work events, and the Super Bowl as well. No other PA state schools can compare to our Sports Science department. I am so grateful for what I have been able to achieve, all due to Lock Haven University.
