Harris Township Reviews

Since Penn State is in State College it has provided the town to adapt to a certain population. Late night food options are a must since many college students like to party and get a late night snack. Example, a really good place is Insomnia Cookies that is only open late at night.

Usually if you graduate high school you can find a job, the issue just lies with finding a job that interests you, that pays well, and that has reasonable hours.
Lots of small town shops where the owners or workers really get to know their customers. It's nice because you feel like you have a connection and therefore feel like you are getting a good deal.
