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!
Review Penn State Lehigh Valley
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.
They have events for students every week. Most of them have free food and games, and it gives students a chance to make friends. You can also becomevery involved with the campus and learn more about it. The professors are also very polite and helpful. They understand that everyone has a life outside of the campus and can be very leinient with grades if you talk to them about any issues you have. If you need extra time with a project, tell them and they will do their best to help you out.
