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've been a student at a big campus and now at a small campus. I love the small feel of my current campus! You get personalized instruction from each professor, and the class moves in time with how the students are learning! The individual experiences have allowed me to join multiple clubs and organizations on campus, and they have also allowed me to be selected to present my work at a regional communications conference!
I like Penn State Schuylkill because it's close to my home town of Pine Grove, which is important to me since I have two jobs there and volunteer at the local high school. I also like the Professors are all nice and willing to work with me if I need more help in any area, this i think can be contributed to the smaller class sizes. I feel safe in the small campus and am enjoying my time here. I wouldn't want to go to school anywhere else.
