Penn State Hazleton Reviews

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.

Small campus, not much to do. Dedicated professors and decent class sizes. Very simple gen ed courses. Most courses are not challenging. High crime rates in Hazleton in general.
A very small campus in a remote town of Pennsylvania, of mostly commuter students, which really holds it back from being a great place for learning. Regardless, the teachers and staff are great, students are friendly and there are plenty of opportunity to get involved.
