When I applied to Penn State University, I really had my heart set on going to Penn State Main Campus. I got accepted into Penn State, Altoona, and I was a little disappointed at first. After going to Altoona for 1.5 years, I can say that I love it! The small campus makes it really easy to get around. My class sizes are pretty small, and I am able to get to know my professors and other class mates a lot easier. I was able to get Penn State football tickets, and I would drive up to all of the home football game with my friends. It was the best of both worlds. I got to enjoy large campus life by going to home football games, yet I got to enjoy the benefits of being on a small campus. Since my dream is to go to Penn State, Main, I am still going to transfer to Penn State Main Campus for my last two years, however, I am very impressed with Penn State, Altoona, and I would recommend it to anyone.
