Penn State Berks Reviews
I love the way they make it feel like a family. Being a family at berks I got to experience wonderful professors, that love to go out they way to make you feel like you’re at home. Also, I got to meet my wonderful mentor Ms. Alexa Hodge she’s very good at her job and love the students from the aspire program. She cares so much and amazing at what she do. If there was more people like her at berks, berks would be a wonderful place to live at!
Penn State Berks consists of a well-knit campus community. The faculty and staff are truly passionate for what they do and are there to help students succeed in college and in the future. Being a highly-involved student in academics, research, and student organizations, I can attest that the quality of the school is high. I can also say that Penn State Berks has helped me acquire a job post-graduation and accomplish my dream of being accepted into dental school.
Ever since I stepped onto Berks Campus, I knew it was my forever home. I've never felt anywhere new feel some much like home. And I knew I needed a home for my endless adventure of college. Maybe it was because my dad graduated there as well; maybe it was the fact it was only 30 minutes away from home; maybe even it was the smallness of the campus. It didn't matter, it quickly became my home. From faculty to students to professors, everyone you encounter is super friendly and supportive.
