Penn state Shenango is a pretty good campus for how small it is. It is easy to make friends and most of the teachers are pretty friendly and helpful! If you don’t like a huge campus, then Penn State Shenango is the one for you. It’s easy to get from class to class, and there’s not to many people. The only thing that isn’t great is the choice of minors and majors, there isn’t a whole lot to choose from.

I have not been able to participate much in job/internships due to being a working adult learner. However, I can say that there is always some type of job shadowing or postings for internships and the staff is always willing and ready to help a student to look for a place to perform their job shadowing. Another thing about my school is the recognition. Once a person mentions the name, instantly employers think high quality education.
Being a branch campus, you have the opportunity to mingle and meet with peopeople you don't always have a chance to meet and get to understand a little bit about their backgrounds and some of their life experiences. In fact, one of the nicest people I have met in my time here is a pastor's wife. Another gentleman who has practically become my best friend, participates in local theater and works a midnight shift at a local factory.
