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!

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.
