"Kutztown University's Clinical Mental Health Counseling program has helped me advance in the field and I have had some really great professors. With any school, it is obvious which professors are passionate about teaching and there for students, while others are not as dedicated. The program seems to be in transition with faculty members which should help with miscommunication and disorganization between faculty and students. I am in my second year and I have already been published, have presented at conferences, and continue to work on research. You do have to advocate for yourself and find a mentor within the department, or else you may get lost in the shuffle."

"Unique environment for students to learn, major classes have small class sizes while general education classes can be much larger. Dining is undergoing a huge renovation this year from what I've seen. Most majors are extremely good, including mine, would recommend if you're looking for a more affordable school."

"The teaching method, the technology, access to internet and equipped library. My professors are approachable and you can ask questions. It is not like this from my country. We do not have all these technologies they have in the United States and good libraries like the one here. That makes study easier and enjoyable. The environment is welcoming and relaxing. Also we are few in my class. That makes it much easier to for the professor to get to know each student individually."

"The electronic media program is awesome, you can start taking major classes immediately. Many of the required classes are hands on. Post Production, Field Production, Studio Production, Audio Production, Lighting, Event and Doc to name a few. The department has a full mac editing lab with both Final Cut Pro 7 and Adobe CS6 Master Collection. They have a fully equipped studio, with 3 cameras, teleprompter, grass valley switcher, multi-viewer, large green screen, and full wall black on track full studio lighting grid. They also recently built a brand new mobile production trailer, with Ross carbonite switcher and full multi-viewer. The professors really know their stuff, and are always willing to help. We were nominated for several Mid-Atlantic Emmy's and have recently brought a trophy home. As for the school as a whole, there are many ways to get involved, on campus housing is good, many choose to move off campus as soon as they can to save money. There are many dining options, a meal swipe counts as $4.95 all across campus. Class sizes vary from 25 to 200, depending on whether it's a gen ed or major class. Most major classes top out around 30-40. Electronic Media classes are typically under 25."

"The professors that have instructed me were fantastic in the science department at Kutztown. I have had many issues with financial aid and also I do not believe the other departments run as smoothly as the science department."

"I feel like the Professors are very intelligent and know what they're talking about. They make the material easy for you to understand yet difficult enough to give you a challenge. Most of the professors get back to you right away if you have any problems, but some take half the semester to post any grades or they will take a week or two to even email you back which is unacceptable."

"Pros: Kutztown has an amazing faculty that are engaging and create a classroom culture cohesive to learning and engagement. I would never consider another school after attending classes here. Cons: Financial aid is challenging to find for graduate school as well as grants for these programs. They require a commitment to work for a low income school district for a number of years, which is almost the only option for educators at this time. However, I want to teach at the college level."

"There is only one con to this program and that is that the classes aren't always at the most convenient times for adult learners who have a full-time job. It is manageable, however, it can become problematic at times. I feel that the pros of this program are that the faculty really want to help the students grow and learn to be the best student affairs professionals they can be. This is a very student-centered program as far as teaching the graduate students that their students should always come first. I think that the accessibility of the professors in this program is amazing as I can always reach a professor if the need arises. There is also ample opportunity for graduate assistantships which helps make your network stronger."
