Penn State Berks Reviews
I loved Penn State Berks, I dreaded graduating because I didn't want the experience to end. Anything I say falls short of the amazing experiences I've had there and all the wonderful professors and staff that I have developed close relationships with as well as the great quality of education. The only thing I would recommend changing is the on campus food, however, there are plenty of place within walking distance of the campus that more than make up for it. I would highly recommend going to this College!
Going into Berks I was extremely nervous. The name itself is intimidating. Upon arrival at Berks there were so many welcoming students to help unload my belongings. The entire weekend they were extremely helpful. With Berks being a small branch campus, its easier for students to get to know their professors, vice versa. Teachers are always willing to help, and stay longer with students, Any financial issues the student aid office helps in every way they can. I truly wouldn't want to change anything at Penn State Berks.
The campus isn't that big so everything is close by. The walk to the academic buildings from the dorms isn't a long walk at all. The campus is very nice and diverse. Everyone is friendly. Since the campus isn't so big, a lot of people know each other will have the same group of friends. The campus is comfortable and the café hours are very convenient being that it stays open until 11pm during the week. The professors I had were very nice and caring. They really showed interest in helping the students in need whether it be a question during office hours or trying to help a student get back on track with the work for that class. I felt very safe on campus. The school has a lot of campus activities such as the talent show, magic shows, movie nights at the nearby movie theatre, etc. The only thing I didn't like, which the school can't change is the number of activities there are to do off campus and in the area.
