Because it's such a small school, making friends is easier than it was when I went to a larger school. Classes are nicely scheduled around one another for my major, but oftentimes classes are only offered in either the spring or fall, not both. There are even a few classes that are only offered once every four semesters. Plus, our entertainment equipment (i.e. the pool table) is in such bad condition. The Professors, both part-time and full-time are amazing all around, and I really enjoy the campus.
Review Penn State New Kensington
I enjoy my school very much. It may be small, but it has a lot of great characteristics. The professors are helpful and the one-on-one aspect that the school can offer is incredible. You can definitely get the help you need by meeting with the very well-known professors. The small classrooms allow for more involved learning and participation, you feel like you're getting your moneys worth at Penn State New Kensington. The curriculum is also challenging and will help to prepare you for whatever other steps you decide to take later on.
Nice, small campus. Very comfortable with good professors. Great because you get to know everyone in your major and get connected with the professors
