Peru State College Reviews
Its a very small but very beautiful campus, one of the most affordable too. I'm no master salesmen; but when I went and talked with all the professors and saw the campus with my own eyes, I could see that it had a good environment for work, study, and emotional growth. The college is very well suited for any and all students looking to make a start!
Peru State College is an amazing college. Everyone here is so nice and understanding! If you have a problem, the professors are willing to help you right away. It is a campus that you feel welcomed on!
I’ve been here a little over a month now and don’t have a single con! There’s such a community feeling here and it feels so cozy and homey. Everyone is so friendly and there’s such a positive environment. I only lack one star because I feel like I still have a lot to see since I’m only a freshman!
