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!

This is is my freshman year. This school is in a good environment and it's located right across the street from a shopping mall. The school also provides daily events for students to come enjoy free food and get involved. The staff is also willing to gladly help you with anything. For example, I went to career services to help me redo my resume. I scheduled an appointment with them and they went above and beyond helping me with my resume. If you are having trouble with a class they provide you with free tutoring. You can tell that they care about there students and want to help them get the most out of college.
I absolutely love this little university. With the ability of 3D printers, libraries, mac rooms, one button studios, gyms, a pool across the street, a small gift shop/bookstore and a small cafe as well as a large supporting help when you need extra tutoring just completes this college. I had the opportunity to go to either main campus or here and I found it really beneficial to stay down here. With such a small campus and every close nit with the teachers, everyone is super friendly and the facility is quite clean always with a lot of student life.
