I like how beautiful the campus is and how different almost all the buildings are when compared to each other. The professors are super nice and helpful. They are willing to help you get the best of your education as long as you put in the effort too.
The student-professor ratio was very beneficial. There was a large amount of diversity on campus, and also diverse clubs and organizations. Behrend was a beautiful campus with many opportunities for all students. I appreciated the Penn State culture, without the HUGE campus chaso.
Behrend is primarily an engineering school. The campus is located near the town of Erie, and it is highly advisable to bring your own car. Winters can be quite snow heavy, but that rarely affects the usual class schedules. Prospective students should prepare for a rigorous walk up and down the hills daily and bring non-skidding shoes. Campus food is average, and not that different from home cooking. But aside from dining hall and pizza place there is no other food place from walking distance. Tuition is bit better than that of main campus, so your best bet would be to transfer to UP after first 2 years.

Penn State Behrend is a great college. The campus is a perfect size, not too large but not too small. The school offers alot of resources. Class sizes are small so you get one on one interaction with professors. There are a bunch of activites, sports and clubs that you can join.
I find the school academically challenging in a good way, however, it is not that fun socially. The clubs and social events are not that exciting.
Just starting out but so far it's been a wonderful experience. Looking forword to all my new experiences at Penn State.
This college is excellent if you are interested in joining a small Behrend community. The teachers in the advanced levels really try to help advance the students to their graduation. Some professors even go so far as to help you get internships and scholarships. It is a very small knit community, but excellent academics.
Nice University in a quiet area. Food gets repetitive and mostly Caucasian and international Asian students. Professors that I’ve had so far are pretty passionate about what they teach.
Behrend college is a great place to attend. The teachers are willing to take time out of their day to help their students excell. The campus may be small but that makes it easier to get to know your classmates. Everyone is friendly and there are plenty of student activists and clubs to join.
Penn State Behrend is a beautiful campus and has a lot of potential. With it being rather small, there is a small amount of diversity. A lot of the men are racist and disrespectful to women which is very frustrating. However, if you find a good group of friends, you will have a great time. Very important to get involved there because there is not a lot to Erie.
Penn State Behrend is a great place to go if you don't like bug schools. The academics at Behrend are better than the majority of other schools in the area. Nothing really goes on on campus but there is always something going on down at Ugates.
Penn State Erie - The Behrend College is a nice little campus located outside Erie, Pa. The staff here are fantastic. Definitely world class. Student-life is pretty good, most people here are really cool individuals. The athletics are amazing. My favorite would have to be anything involving basketball.
I had a very good time getting to know the campus and the area around it. I thought that it was a very good size for its population, maybe could use less hills if that was an option. Overall I can't wait to study their full time starting in the fall of 2018.
Penn State Erie is a small and beautiful campus. The professors here are super personable and really want you to succeed! The diversity on this Penn State campus is insane and it is such a cool environment to complete your education in.
I really like the opportunity to get involved here. There sre hundreds of clubs and you can do research with professors! One thing I would like to see change is a a bridge fir students to walk over the main road, would hate to see someone get in an accident.
Went here for first two years. Really beautiful campus. 10 minutes from peach street which is the us-19 and 5 minutes from buffalo road. Lake Erie is a nice place to have fun after class.
The people there are so nice and will help you in any way possible if you ask for help. The professors for the most part are very understanding and care about what you have to say. The environment makes you feel safe as it is a dry campus and everyone's main goal is to keep everyone safe and feel secure.

I have had a great experience at Behrend. It is so close to so many restaurants and fun things to do. There are also so many great professors and faculty who make you feel like you matter as a student and person.
Penn State Behrend is a college that is great for students that thrive in a small classroom setting. I happen to be one of these students. It really helps me to build relationships with teachers and see familiar faces everyday. However, there are two dining halls on campus. One of which has odd hours with a variety of foods day-to-day. While the other is open pretty much all day but the food gets old quick as they mostly always have the same stuff. Overall, I would say this is a great academic school, but socially is not the best offered. Not really a school you would want to go to if you are looking to have a lot of fun at.
Great intro to their business program, friendly staff, great set up for working on campus, good student encouragement ,opportunities
