Penn State Harrisburg Reviews
Review Penn State Harrisburg
Penn State Harrisburg is a wonderful campus. From it's rolling hills across campus, to its active organizations and events throughout every week, PSH is a great first campus to attend. While there aren't many clubs, maybe about twenty, every club is quite active. Administration, professors, and even upperclassmen are all very helpful and friendly. I wish I could complete my degree [Global and International Studies] here but the campus is primarily science and engineering based.
Penn State Harrisburg is a very welcoming campus. The students are all very friendly and it is easy to meet so many new people. All of the professors are willing to give extra help to anyone that needs it whether it is in regards to more explanation about the course material, or just help with any personal problems. The campus is in a nice location, close to a train station, airport, a few restaurants, multiple gas stations, and a few grocery stores all within a mile or two of the campus. There are multiple places to eat all with a variety of foods. The main dining hall always has different food options every day which is great. Overall, Penn State Harrisburg is a great school, small, welcoming, allows you to be who you are, and gives you so many opportunities to try new things and expand your horizons.
This campus has many fitness classes to offer! They have P90X, a spin class, yoga, zumba, core abs class, and even insanity! The fitness loft and the weight room are super nice but I prefer going to the classes personally. They are awesome and super fun!
