I love how the World Campus program is highly efficient in navigating through Lionpath and Canvas platforms. The interaction amongst professors and students is highly prevalent; most think with online programs that they do not have much interaction with other classmates; however, Penn State World Campus has proven otherwise. I have established wonderful working relationships with students from all over the world!

This is the third college I have attended. I opted for finishing my degree online because of my tough schedule with kids and work. Not only is it convient that I can work on assignments whenever I need, the different offices of the school (financial, buissness, registrar, etc) have always been very helpful and considerate!
This campus is really working to end the stigma around online schooling. The programs are challenging, the professors are passionate, and the students are full of diverse backgrounds and experiences that are great to share!
