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.
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.
Academically a good school with good instructors for the most part. Good way to save money as a commuter from the local area. Socially not so good since it is very difficult for commuters to meet others on campus. Might be different for a student that dorms.

Penn State Hazleton is a small diverse school where it is very easy to make friends. With such small classes the teacher creates that bond with their students that is better to help learn.
Penn State Hazleton is a very small campus with great class room sizes, and you have a strong relationship with your professors.
Every body is very friendly and the teachers help you with anything you need if you are struggling in a specific subject.
My experience with is so far, a teacher went out of her way to get me into a couple classes, that were interfering with each other. So far it will start off the year with a bang I hope anyway. What I would like to see change? I believe If they could work on better app for phones, to help out other students.
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.
I loved going to Penn State because it's like my second house. I love all the activity. There are a help every where and at anytime too .
I love being at Penn Sate - Hazleton Campus - class size is small - so you get to know your teachers - everyone is so nice and helpful. I met a lot of great friends.
I love that it is a smaller campus because it gives you a chance to have a more one on one relationship with your professors. The faculty is very easy to get along with and they're very helpful. There are tons of clubs to join such as Thon. Its a beautiful campus and a great place to make new friends. One thing I wish would change is I wish they would offer photography courses.
The campus is small so there's less professors which means students dont have a lot of options for class times. Sometimes you cant take a class you need because it clashes times with another class you need. Most of the time you can get into all the classes you need, or at least most of them.
The quality of the online class honestly depends on the professor. They all use different programs.
The head professors of each department try to hook students up with connections to major companies. We also have career fair so students can submit resumes in the hopes of acquiring an internship
At the Hazleton campus you find professors on both ends of the spectrum. There's the professors that beg you to come to office hours and ones that come in, lecture, and leave. Personally I think a student's success relies solely on themselves. The professors will be there if you approach them but they're not going to approach you
When people hear Penn State, they know the school, they know the magnitude of the programs run there. Employers look highly upon a Penn State degree.
Being the only biomedical engineer on my campus, it's difficult to find someone who fully understands the strenuous work load I have. Most of the engineers have an excessive amount of work. Which I would assume to be the same at any other school

The mathematics on this campus are the most challenging of all the campuses in the university including the main campus. Engineers should consider a different campus unless they have a exceptional understanding of calculus. However, a lot of engineers attend at this campus for their first two years.
I find the Online courses to be useful when you need to take a class but can't fit it into your secluded; but to me nothing replaces the experience you get inside the classroom
Penn State is world renowned for its alumni network. The university also host multiple career fairs every year at the different campuses. I don't foresee having much of a problem finding a job after graduation.
