My first year at Penn State Schuylkill is going extremely well. The professors are some of the best around. The classrooms consist of around 20 students, so it is a very personal learning experience. The professors are always open to helping after class, or on their own time. The campus is small and manageable, unlike some campuses that are massive. The students there are helpful as well. You see most of the same students everyday, so you really get to know you're class mates. One of the best aspects of Penn State Schuylkill is the free tutoring at anytime. You have the options of student or teacher tutors. That is my experience in my first year at Penn State Schuylkill!

I love the school I go to and wouldn't image going anywhere else. All faculty make the campus feel like home in a small community at a tiny campus. Of course the campus has flaws - such as the many ghost stories or limited food options outside of campus grounds. I am glad I chose this school to go to!
So far Penn State Schuylkill has been a very eye opening experience, administration as well as the local area teaches young adults the true life and responsibilities of an adult.
