Penn State New Kensington Reviews
Overall, my experience with Penn State New Kensington has been positive. The faculty work well together and everyone is extremely pleasant and helpful. This campus network of students and employees alike is very much liked a family. Small class sizes are also ideal for student/professor relationships. The instructors know you by name and do everything in their power to help you succeed, not only academically but personally as well. WE ARE!
Penn State New Kensington is one of Penn States smallest Campuses, as a result of this, students get much more one on one education from professors and have much more of an opportunity to learn and ask questions. It also helps create tighter bonds between students, because we all have the same classes together. The nicest thing about Penn State New Kensington is that most students commute, which helps many of the students in this area who want a high level college education and are also in financial need. This campus has some of the nicest faculty, who care about their students and will help them get through their courses however they can.
If you love a smaller university Penn State Mew Kensington is the place to be! The overall experience I have had is that everyone is nice and supporting and willing to help you with anything you may need help with.
