Penn State Greater Allegheny Reviews
I really enjoyed my experience with Penn State GA. It was a great, Goldilocks type campus that wasn't too small, or too big; but just right. It really made my college experience memorable to have such amazing professors that treated you like an individual. Even though it was memorable, it wasn't always in a good way. My Penn State GA advisor for my major gave me the wrong plan and I ended up having to go back an extra semester for one French III course that I didn't know I had to take. Penn State paid for me to go back, but because I was no longer considered a full-time student, my loans came due as soon as I received my degree. Not always the best choice, but definitely a good choice if you are staying near the Pittsburgh area and want a medium sized campus.
I love Penn State Greater Allegheny, everyone here are helpful and always joyful and loving! The education here is amazing, also the students are very helpful as well. They have a lot of sources so that if i need anything there always a place to help.
Penn State Greater Allegheny is the perfect school to start out with if you are thinking about going to college. We are a smaller campus with about 500 students and are very diverse. We have been listed as the 8th safest campus in Pennsylvania. The class sizes range from about 5 students to the size of what a normal high school class would be. Penn State offers many scholarships for new students and provides the best entertainment for students during their lunch hour and finals week. We also offer ACE which is where you can receive free help with tutors on campus and provide ways for students to be provided with books at a discounted price to no price at all.
