Penn State York Reviews
Penn State York is good academic school but it is not the best. The professors here are very good and care about their students. Outside of this there isn’t much positive to say. Because it is a commuter college there are very few clubs so it is hard to get involved. I would advise for prospective students to find another branch campus to go to spend your first two years at or if you are looking for a local college just go to York College. Overall i’d say this school is average, but this is not the place you go to if you want the college experience.
Many of my professors are great and provide information beyond what you would expect and in a way that sticks your mind. However, there are a few professors that have demonstrated they are not capable of educating their students properly. There are enough professors that you can avoid these if you ask around.
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.).
