Penn college is a pretty good school. The only reason I choose this school is because I get a 75% discount on tuition. I wouldn’t recommend it to other people who can’t get the education at a cheaper rate. You can find better education elsewhere for a better price. Although they advertise it as a two year degree school some programs are not two years. They can last longer than 4 years due to competitiveness. The parking lots are constantly packed for commuters. Most times I have to find parking outside of campus because they sell more parking permits then they have parking spots. It makes getting to school pretty stressful. Other than that the classes are pretty small, teachers are mostly lenient and willing to work with you. It’s not hard to get good grades at this school because most teachers care about your success and are willing to work 1 on 1. The only thing you really get from tuition is tutoring, which I have never used. So it’s a hit or miss for some people

The college, over all, is a pretty good school for technology focused degrees. In addition, outside of classes there are plenty of clubs and activities on campus to meet new people and relax from the grind. However, if you are going for an information technology degree best bring your own computer. The college fails to keep the computers and software up to date. Additionally, if a class requires a specific piece of software, be prepared to go on a goose chase to find which public lab has the computers that have it installed as public labs in the same building may not have it installed.
Overall, Pennsylvania College of Technology is by far the best college. Attending into my sophomore year, the programs are excellent. The professors that run each program are very knowledgeable, and are there to give you the best education possible. The funding here is excellent they are very understanding of our situations in the real world. Penn College also exceeds a graduation rate of 97% and most students walk out of college with a job.
