Penn State Lehigh Valley Reviews

The teachers are very nice and are willing to work with you and I appreciate that about them. I do wish that there were more opportunities to meet people online, though. Otherwise, the college is great and I'm sure that if I was attending in person, I would have lots of new friends there! I've taken bio-behavioral health and I appreciated that we worked in groups and that I was able to get some people's numbers. I'm a social person; but with everything being online at school it's practically impossible to meet new people unless we're put in a group project. I think that both the teaching and curriculum are good at Penn State.

The experience at Lehigh Valley is amazing, the faculty is always at hand. There are always people around to help welcome you in the building as well as to assist to find classrooms. The small campus allows the college experience you want with the educational support you need. The atmosphere is positive and the students are always joyful. Great place to get a four-year degree without breaking the bank!
Penn State Lehigh Valley is a small school, therefore, you get to know almost everyone in your class rather quickly and really well. Also, the 1 on 1 help from the teacher's is great. Except Chem is really hard for no reason here.
I would recommend this school to students that have a low college tuition budget and stick to the 2+2 to get your general classes out of the way rather than wasting money on dorming at Main. The vibe doesn't feel too much like college but instead a highschool 2.0 but if you're looking for a fresh start out of highschool this is the place to be everyone on campus is very friendly including the staff!
