Penn State Brandywine is an intimate campus with a few students but amazing faculty. Due to the small size it is very easy for a student to get a one on one meeting with professors to clear up doubts or to ask advice, something that I often did. Every facility is well thought of and provided. Moreover the diversity at this campus is vast which is a refreshing experience for an international student. The courses are very interesting and the teachers make it even more so. There are regular field trips which amount to an amazing, very American experience to people who are new to this country. I would definitely urge future students who have chosen Penn State today least spend a year here!

Some professors are clearly very good at what they do. Find them and stick to them! The administrative side of the campus is lacking and often gives confusing information or misguides. Double check everything.
Most of the faculty is very nice. If you are looking for college-lite this is for you. There is no social life and the campus is very dry. The cafe food is most of the time only fried food and if you do not have a car is your only option. The people here are great, but the campus is just in the middle of nowhere.
