Degree: Public Relations
Graduation Year: 2012

Choosing to attend Penn State was the best decision I have ever made in my life. Not only did I make life-long friends, enjoy a quality education, and meet inspiring individuals in extracurricular activities, but I also found myself at Penn State. PSU offers each student the chance to rediscover his/her hopes and dreams on a daily basis. It was not until I had the freedom to enjoy everything that Penn State had to offer that I became comfortable in my own skin, confident in my education and acquired professional skills, and ready to take on the world. I cannot imagine my life today without the experience of attending the Pennsylvania State University. WE ARE!

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2014

Penn State has one of the largest alumni networks in the country, which is part of the reason I decided to go there. The connections you can make for jobs are very important, as Penn Staters like to help out fellow alums. It is a really big school, which has its advantages, but it is also up to the students to make the school seem small. It is possible (and helpful) to develop relationships with faculty by sitting up front, asking questions, going to office hours, and participating in research.

Degree: Sociology
Graduation Year: 2014

I had a great experience, as an undergraduate student, at Pennsylvania State University. The content was very impactful, and it inspired me to pursue a career as an educator. The courses that I took during my undergraduate studies gave me the opportunity to take into account a variety of social elements that affect people in American society and across the globe.

Degree: Management
Graduation Year: 2015

I had a great time in college. I had a good base of friends and always get along with my roomates. The work load, however, made it sometimes hard to socialize.

Penn State was one of the best decisions I ever made. The number of graduates from the school makes for a great alumni network, positive attitudes about graduates in the work force, and the school really invests in helping their students to succeed.

Degree: Public Relations
Graduation Year: 2010

Penn State was the greatest four years of my life. It's where I met my closest friends, built relationships with mentors, gained valuable job experience and grew into the person I am today. The big school culture certainly isn't for everyone, but I welcomed the chance and the challenge of defining myself in an environment of endless opportunities. Penn State does a great job of setting you up for success in the real world, if you take advantage of it.
