Penn State Wilkes-Barre Reviews
Location-close to home, Great Professors, Smaller Classes-better learning environment and more individualized attention if needed, Cost of Education.
Penn State Wilkes-Barre is a quiet campus in Lehman, Pennsylvania. They offer an assortment of academics, athletic programs, and student assistance. Professors there are easy to work with. The campus is beautiful. Parties shouldn't determine where a student will attend college. There is a limited party scene here. There isn't much in the immediate area, but Dallas is nearby, offering many places to eat and shop.
I love that this is a small school. More intimate classes, 16 to 1 student-professor ratio. I would love if this campus had dorms owned by the college, and an updated cafeteria.
