Penn State Wilkes-Barre Reviews
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.
Great teachers, very helpful. Small classrooms and very personal instruction. The campus is a little small and there isn't much to do there but it is excellent if you are only interested in acedemics
I did not live on campus but I have had the opportunity to go into many of the apartments. They are fairly spacious compared to your average dorm. Each apartment has 4-6 students that share 2 bathrooms, a living room, and kitchen. The students who live there are usually fairly close and get along. Your roommates will most likely have the same major or a similar major to you.
