Penn State is an amazing, all-around experience. It's a huge campus, but it has great facilities, great faculty, and State College is a pretty great college town.
Besides that, there's a great...
To be honest, there isn't much. It's a great campus, great student body, great athletics, and it's well worth the money.
I suppose the worst part about the school is the sheer size of the campus....
Sports and the social life.
Class size--since it's a state school the classes tend to be larger and more impersonal.
Distance to classes.
There are so many good things about this school it is hard to pick one. Since I have to choose I would say the best thing is the student unity. Whether your in class, at a party, or at a football...
The worst thing about this school would not really be the school at all. I would say the worst thing about this area would be the weather, but you get used to it like you get used to everything in...
i love the surrounding area, far from city, with mountains and tress.
when winter comes, i never feel like to go to class
The best thing about this school is that there is something to do everyday, never a dull moment at Penn State
The worst thing about the school is...well I have yet to find a bad thing about the main campus
the art dept. and it's amazing but under-appreciated staff/professors
The art dept facilities, they keep closing, moving and ignoring them. First priority is and always is sports, mainly football. Which, in turn, makes the rest of the campus suffer, both financially...
Going into my junior year at Penn State, I can honestly say that I'm as thrilled to be a student at this university today as the first day I stepped onto campus as a freshman. I couldn't help but...
The worst thing about this school is the high tuition rates. I'm already experiencing the burden of the cost to be a Penn State student, and I know this is going to impact me greatly as soon as I...
Nice workout facility.
Too many foreign people that you can't understand teaching. And it is not worth the money to go there. the classrooms at the beaver campus are old and falling apart
Great alumni and sense of belonging, there are a multitude of clubs and organizations that students can join to get involved and meet people. Academics are very good in particular areas and above...
Some people take the number one party school mentality too seriously, and the size of the student body can be overwhelming for some
The best thing social wise, would have to be the school spirit. Everyone is different and that's another good thing about Penn State but we all have school spirit! It's kind of weird by the end of...
The worst part about the school for my campus is the location. I go to Penn State Mont Alto and although the campus is beautiful and the town is pretty laid back , I'm a city girl! Therefore, I...
The school spirit at Penn State is incomparable. The massive student body is brought together over their love of Penn State Football, JoePa, and the Nittany Lions in general.
It can be easy to get lost in the crowd because of the size of the school. However, it is what you make of it and it can easily become a smaller school setting if you join one of over 700 clubs or...
The school spirit, by far. It's unbelievable. The love for the school here is stronger than any school I've ever attended or visited: and stronger than any city's love for their city/sports teams,...
Some people may find this attractive, but the partying scene is way too prominent. Granted, they do provide various activities for those who don't want to drink, and I have not yet explored those....
The best thing about Penn State is the family-like atmosphere and the way all the students embrace each other.
The worst thing about Penn State is the bad reputation the school gets for being a "party school" when that is up for debate.
All the student and faculty are so friendly, its impossible not to make great friends and have an incredible experience.
The worst thing about this school is the weather.
There is so much to do up here. Whether you want to get involved with choir, the chess club, THON (which all of you absolutely must research and look in to), club soccer, intramurals, or beach...
The distance of freshman dorm halls to the rest of campus. However, that is not terribly significant as you can get from one class to the next within the allotted time, and there are free buses...
Penn State is a family. Everyone is connected in this big spider web and you can meet total strangers and have an amazing connection with them because you both attended Penn State.
The showers in the dorms are poorly designed. Quite annoying.
The school spirit and the pride.
There is nothing exciting surrounding it... no big cities or anything like that. But who needs any of that when everything you need is right on campus or down town?!
The town in which it is located and the student body involvement. There is never a dull moment at Penn State
I would say we get a bad reputation for being a "party school." However, we have some of the best academics in the nation with arguably the best Honors College in the nation.
The reasonable tuition rates for in-state students.
Large class sizes. Costly required electives that are not relevant to my studies.
It was a big school, but with many small campuses. I learned a lot by going to the small campus first and then transferring to the big/main campus.
Like all schools, expensive.
The school spirit - everyone wears the blue and white - and it shows throughout the campus.
Being located in a small town located at least 2 hours from any major city can have a toll on you sometimes.
One of the best programs in the nation for Agricultural related degrees.
Some of the branch campuses do not have great academics.
The selection of classes
There are too many distractions (i.e. parties) and the campus is hard to navigate
