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.
Penn State Greater Allegheny (PSUGA or GA) is a small melting pot of diversity on the west side of the state. My two years here were great. There were about 11 clubs, but we could always create one, and there was plenty of opportunities to get involved in activities, committees or community service
