Penn State Beaver Reviews
The campus is small, but there is an abundance of diversity! Coming from a small town in Pennsylvania, I grew up with predominantly caucasian classmates. At Beaver, there is a range of students, including international students! It is a great transitional college. Many students who attend come for 1 or 2 years before going to a bigger campus. This way, you learn how to have independence from your parents or caretakers, but you still have a feel for what college is like. There are places to eat off campus considering the one dining hall is not open at all hours. Living in the dorms can be a challenge. There tends to be a lot of arguments; that can be both entertaining and annoying! The teachers really care about the students. They encourage students to ask questions and have flexible office hours. The athletic programs are coached by some of the greatest in the PSUAC. Overall, it is a great place to meet lifelong friends and step outside your comfort zone.
Penn State Beaver is a great campus to attend, especially if you are interested in Information Technology. The professors are well spoken, and it is a more affordable option than the main campus. Especially since you're able to finish a four year degree without having to transfer!
I am looking into going to Penn State Beaver. I scheduled a college visit and instantly fell in love with the atmosphere. During the tour, the guide was great and personable. He explained the great aspects of the campus and even let us tour some of the buildings. The campus is small, yet homely. It makes you feel like you belong.
