Penn State Worthington Scranton Reviews

PSU Scranton is a small, cozy campus for those looking to transition to a larger one or save money by commuting. There is off-campus housing offered, but it was a HUGE money-saver for me to commute.

The campus itself has plenty of STEM equipment and resources, plus a decent sports program. The arts programs were thoroughly lacking, but it is a very small campus. The clubs and organizations (including Student Gov and THON) are a big deal on campus, and many students are very involved. Events are happening all the time with tons of free food, swag, and good fun!

The community is an odd one, since about half of the students attending are 2+2 students who will only be there for two years. Despite that, the campus is small enough that everyone knows everyone and the community is welcoming and kind.

Penn State Worthington Scranton offers an affordable big degree. By that I mean on your diploma it reads Pennsylvania State University not Penn State Worthington Scranton. We are all one! You obtain a Penn State degree without the horror of enormous financial debt after graduating. My favorite thing about my campus is the great growing diversity of clubs and activities to be involved in. For example Campus Activities Board puts on a karaoke night, stuff a plush, coffee house, game shows, and so much more. This helps to balance academics with relaxing and having fun with fellow students. As well as offering fun activities there are also educational activities that are held on campus such as Chinese New Year Celebration, How to Write a Resume and Interview Like a Pro, etc... overall, Penn State Worthington Scranton provides a wonderful and cultural experience at an affordable cost which in the end yields a stupendous degree!
I love how diverse this campus is. They always have events for everyone’s interests. However, the campus is out dated in some areas like the library, and the cafeteria does not have many options. Overall, the campus in enjoyable!
