Penn State Lehigh Valley Reviews

Penn State Lehigh Valley offered the prestigious education that you'd expect from Penn State, as well as individual attention from professors that may only be available at a branch. Many opportunities that were available to me at the Lehigh Valley campus would have been much harder to come by at University Park, such as a job as a Peer Tutor. Being the smallest Penn State branch, there was a tight-knit community feeling at this campus both inside and outside of the classroom.

There are a lot of free things at penn state lehigh valley and a lot of cheap activities. Many activities during the weeks with often free food keeping students busy. Very diverse mostly white but a big ethnic population. I had one issues with a bad proffesor, I wasn't the only one but the university listened and they took care of him while the other proffesors have been amazing!
I absolutely love Penn State Lehigh valley. I really like the smaller class sizes because the students can get to know the professors on a personal level and will not feel discouraged asking for extra help. I also really enjoy how psu Lehigh valley offers something for everyone whether you like sports or video games there are clubs and activities for everyone. The teachers and administrators are also very helpful. I cannot stress enough how devoted the professors are and the advisors. Personally my advisor does whatever she can to help me she is always attentive and ready to help me whenever I am in need. If there was something I could add to the school it would be to add more majors that can be completed. As of now business and psychology bachelors can be offered at psu Lehigh valley with no transfer to main campus necessary. However, I would love to see other majors, such as education degrees, offered at Lehigh valley without a transfer necessary.
