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.

I'm feeling extremely comfortable at Penn State York. I'm taking five classes and each teacher is awesome! They explain their class really well and so far I've taken three quizzes and did well on them. I have the type of teachers that don't make their class confusing and vague. I'm definitely understanding my courses and feeling confident that hopefully with good amount of studying I will pass my classes with a high grade.
I've been at PSY for 2 years and will be heading to main campus in the fall. I couldn't be more proud of being a pen state Yorker. We're a small commuter campus, and that is what makes it so nice. You start to get to know everyone and have classes with a lot of the same people. We're always starting new clubs depending on what students are unstressed in. I would definitely recommend getting involved in clubs and going to sporting events and campus events. It's just a good way to meet people who are into the same things. I really loved my experience at penn state york.
