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.

I like Penn State Hazleton because it offers my major, and they have a really good program for Hospitality Management. Another thing I like about Penn State is that there's students from everywhere, and you still feel like family.
I have visited this campus many times and I love the atmosphere, teachers, what the college offers in academics, and the food is great too!
