Rehabilitation and Human Services bachelor's degree from Pennsylvania State University is a great gateway degree for individuals who are interested in going to graduate school for counseling, psychology or human development. This degree allows individuals who are not interested in furthering their education in obtaining employment within casework and etc. I am now going to school counseling.
Penn State is a wonderful school with excellent teachers. The network is so vast. I graduated in 2010 and started my own business. I book clients based solely on the fact that I also went Penn State just like them! I feel that i got a good education with a lot of hands on, real world experience. My classes were also all really small, around 10-20 students once I started my main core classes.
Penn State is an absolutely fantastic school! I learned a ton from my professors, classmates, and the many friends I made while attending school. I'm honestly beyond happy with the education I received, the priceless relationships I formed, and the effective networking connections after graduating.
Penn State University offers a phenomenal educational experience. With over 46,000 undergraduate students and over hundreds of clubs, exposure to diverse culture and activities is at a student's fingertips. I had the opportunity to work with students from multiple departments, which exposed me to topics outside of my major and challenged me to think differently. The environment, people, and culture at Penn State are overwhelmingly welcoming, and I am lucky to have spent four years in such a great place!
The business school at Penn State is one of the best in the country. The resources available, and the professors are among the best in the world. I feel the school greatly prepared me for my life in the working world, and that my time there was well spent. I would strongly recommend Penn State to anyone who is seeking a strong business education.
All and all, this was an excellent online program. If you are looking for an easy online degree, you will be sadly mistaken to realize that Penn State will not provide you with the degree. Although an online degree can be challenging, the instructors at Penn State are very understanding of life circumstances and will give you the benefit of the doubt if a crisis arises. I am a Veteran and their Veteran's Service department is outstanding. They always ensured that I had what I needed and I never had any issue with tuition payments. I feel as though I learned a lot during my education at Penn State and I am certainly proud to be a Nittany Lion.
I enjoyed my time at Penn State both educationally and socially. Penn State University Campus is a very large campus, both in size and diversity. It gives you the feel a small city within a city. Educationally I think it challenged me to expand my thought process as well as my problem solving skills. It also teaches you how to work well in groups and with other nationalities. Socially, there is a wide-range of clubs and organizations to join, community service opportunities and of course sports.
The Pennsylvania State University system is as impressive as it is large! I first attended a branch campus after transferring from a University in Oregon. I spent my final two years at University Park (the main campus). The opportunities available to those who attend Penn State are far and wide. From what you study, to the value of your degree after graduating, Penn State offers something for everyone. Their Smeal College of Business is top ranked, and provided me with a solid foundation from which to grow my career. Penn State also boasts the largest alumni association in the country! I am now back in Oregon, and have found a local chapter of fellow Penn State Grads. I would strongly encourage any prospective college student to investigate if Penn State has a program in their area of interest!
I had a wonderful time at my school. The advisers are an incredible tool to use. Ask them as many good questions as you can come up with as they have a great deal of experience and are there to help you. I would really take advantage of the numerous school groups and strongly advise joining one that you find to be a good match for you.
Penn State has wonderful programs. Whether it's at a satellite campus (I went to Penn State Mont Alto), online, or at Main Campus you will have a great experience. There are lots of opportunities to get involved with your community, other students, and even internships. Many of the professors are one of the best parts of the school. I learned a lot from all of my teachers. As a learning support student, the ACC at Mont Alto can not be beat! I did wish the learning support at Main Campus was more like the one at my satellite campus after I transferred. They did not seem as open to answering some of the questions I had or at least not as knowledgable about their campus. The only down side for me was that the advisors and administrators are not helpful when it comes to questions about your major or job opportunities after college. Scholarships are also hard to find. You have to do a lot of the legwork to find answers about these type of questions by yourself. Over all, Penn State is an amazing academic experience.
