Degree: Public Relations
Graduation Year: 2012

Attending Penn State was one of the best decisions I've ever made. You won't find another school with so much pride and school spirit. Despite being a huge college, the professors care and will make sure you get the help you need if you ask. I made lifelong friendships at Penn State. On top of that, people are always impressed when I tell them where I went to school and the huge alumni always an asset.

Graduation Year: 2011

I went to a smaller Penn State branch campus in DuBois, PA. I had an excellent experience there with small-sized classes, individual attention, and all the benefits of the Penn State education system. A major benefit of Penn State DuBois was that it made you feel recognized as an individual and not just a number (which tends to be the opposite case with larger campuses). There were also many clubs and activities to participate in on campus.

I don't feel as if any program can truly prepare you for a classroom experience but this was the best it could be.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

Penn State is an excellent university. I was able to maintain my military life style and continue my education. Professors are rigorous yet extremely engaging and willing to help. This is definitely not a university for those seeking an easy degree. There are plenty of opportunities to interact with the faculty and other students. I was able to work in two different research labs and improved tremendously my skills and network. If you are willing to put in the work this is definitely an university to be proud of.

Degree: Psychology, Other
Graduation Year: 2009

Penn State is a phenomenal institution. It provided me with a place that I could combine my interests, explore opportunities beyond the classroom, and learn how to begin to tackle life's challenges. I was supported throughout by seeking out mentors and advisors who invested in their students. It's a large university which provides a wealth of opportunities and size is not a problem. You can make it as large or as small as you want. I would highly recommend Penn State. WE ARE PENN STATE!

Degree: Criminal Justice/Law Enforcement Administration
Graduation Year: 2008

It was a great university, and a fantastic learning experience. Penn State is the right size and place for students to grown and learn, without dealing with so many exterior factors that come with many other large city schools. Set in beautiful rural State College, Pennsylvania, "Happy Valley" revolves and exists entire for the students, football, and fun times. Being able to participate in over 600+ athletic or scholastic clubs (I was on the Mock Trial and the Crew/Rowing teams) and choose from hundreds of interesting classes from thousands of excellent professors, and being surrounded by tens of thousands (and sometimes hundreds of thousands on football Saturdays!) of fellow Penn Staters- it was a great experience. Don't let the bad news in the media sway you negatively. I ultimately moved to Florida, but I don't regret a day spent in PA at Penn State University. WE ARE!
