Penn State Harrisburg Reviews
Review Penn State Harrisburg
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!
Friendly Students and Faculty, Great Post-College Employment Rate, and Cheap Tuition. The School is constantly growing with a new building that opened last year for engineering labs and a new Student Center opening this Summer. Plans are for even more buildings to go up. The Social Atmosphere here is great. Not a "Party School" per se but if you want to have fun there are plenty of parties as well as school run activities and bars around town. 15 minutes away from Harrisburg. Great school for Engineering, Biology, Criminal Justice, and Political Science. Other programs may be just as good. Plenty of ways to get jobs on campus, intramurals on campus, sports teams, and clubs.
