Penn State Harrisburg Reviews
I love this campus! If you're looking for a small, friendly, lively school, come here! The campus is very diverse and over 20 nations are represented in the student body. The staff are all wonderful and really want to see you succeed! The students on and off campus are friendly and helpful. There are over 30 clubs, free tutoring, therapy services, and trips available to just students. Penn State Harrisburg is a great campus!
Campus is very nice and kept clean, all of my professors seem to know what they're talking about (and they also all have doctorates), the library is very niceAnyways, I wouldn't recommend this school if you're planning on living here. Especially when you can hear everything your roommates are doing at all times, it gets extremely annoying (I've lost so much sleep). The school clearly does not care about nutrition so don't be forced into buying the most expensive meal plan in the US. The academics are the only decent pro here, so if you're a commuter then the school is fine. However , do not come here if you're planning on living here.
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.
