Penn State Hazleton Reviews
I like how connected everyone is. It's very easy to find people who you have common interests with. I personally enjoy the gameroom, a lot of easy opportunities to meet others. The classes are also very enjoyable and staff is more than helpful whenever you need something. If you enjoy a small campus environment then this is a really good place to go.
Everyone has been very accommodating and helpful, staff is very nice and knowledgeable. Great class sizes, lots of selection.
Well, Penn State is a large school. Some people do not feel comfortable at these big schools and can sometimes get overwhelmed by the number of students that attend here. It is easy to find a group of friends, but you should evaluate if you easily are overwhelmed and determine the importance of small classes. I was surprised at how much I liked the large classes, as I was always a class participator in class. The further you get in your major, the smaller the classes are which is always nice. In the past, whenever I told people I attended Penn State, the reaction was always a positive one. People always seemed to hold a high respect level for Penn State, which helped me build my sense of pride in my school.
