Penn State Mont Alto is a very good school. The faculty and staff are very nice and welcoming, ready to help you take on anything that you're having trouble with. You'll be able to connect with the professors on a higher level then other schools. Mont Alto being as small as it is, it gives you a great opportunity to get to know the campus and make friends. The campus is 75% commuters in case you're a commuter and may need to make a commuter friend to help you get back and forth to school. The campus scenery is amazing, the trees, flowers, birds, etc. There isn't much to do around the premises of the campus if you are without a car, however, faculty and maybe even you will work to help bring fun activities to the campus for free or just a small fee.
Not bad, they really strive for diversity and inclusion. Almost to a fault of not ensure a great time. Most of the time, too small to succeed.
