Penn State York Reviews

I am currently a Sophomore at Penn State York. I am enrolled in the 2+2 Program and Transfer to University Park in the Fall of 2018.
The professors on campus are average, but so far I have only had great experiences with 2 of my many professors. Many of the professors on campus are involved in many other academic activities, including research studies, and I have found that they don't take their classes as serious as they should be. However, the campus is in a good location and it is a pretty campus as well.

Penn State York it is nice university and the professor are okay and the campus is big enough. I have only been their for one semester so my review on the school can be different than the person who has been on this campus for about 1-2 years. From my experience the student life sucks and not many society, group or organization. Most of the time campus has no life life to it , since their are only about 1000-1500 students going to this campus. It feels more like high school than University.
The professors know what the are doing and they have a way of teaching that makes the class interesting. The amount of professors that are available is magnificent. This is a very small campus and students just have to make themselves known and be involved. My over all experience is great! The campus has food truck fair and gave everything for free, that was a terrific experience. I work at the college, give tours and am president of chemistry club and I'm a leader this campus has made me shine and I intend to pursue my goal as a future forensic chemist.
