I am a transfer student from HACC. So far my experience with Penn State York has been great. I attended a transfer student meeting and I was given a tour. I felt very comfortable with the campus when I started this semester. I am happy with the services provided on campus (gym, tutoring, counseling services, etc.).

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.
Great bang for your buck here, lots of free services. Makes a great transition between high school and college. Small class sizes, campus life is small because all are commuters. Wish they had more major courses here. The advisors here are really top notch, at least mine was.
