Degree: Kinesiology and Exercise Science
Graduation Year: 2018

Penn State has a great Kinesiology and Sports Medicine program. Providing many teaching methods to help students understand the curriculum. Although classes were large of about 200-400 students, it is best to talk to professors and get to know them as well as ask as many questions as possible when it comes to exams or homework questions. Taking advantage of office hours and study sessions will definitely help you understand even the most difficult courses. The Kinesiology professors definitely made the courses interesting.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2018

The Pennsylvania State University is ranked 59th among the Best National Colleges in the US, and is the 14th best team nationally in football. With dozens of nationally ranked majors and being a prestigious, highly regarded university, the competition to be a Nittany Lion is unlike any other. We're ranked 10th in the Best Student Life in America, and 1st in the Best Student Life in Pennsylvania. It's a family, a home and a network that I'll forever hold close to my heart. The campus is among the most beautiful, with the falls and winters being unparalleled with any other, and the springs picturesque. Penn State football is notorious for its high energy and the nationwide connection it provides. Theres a saying that you can find Penn State family everywhere. The study of Psychology at Penn State has allowed me to network with some of the highest regarded mental health professionals in the nation, as well as participate in the best research opportunities. Unlike any other large university, Ive still managed to receive one on one attention and countless opportunities for help if needed. My professors have always treated me with respect and regarded me as a professional and a friend. Alongside the distinguished academics, the friends and memories I've made are unmatched. From the sporting events to the events like Arts Fest, Bryce Jordan Center concerts and THON, Penn State has always made those in the PSU family and friends of Penn State feel like they're at home, and it'll always be one of the best times of my life.

Degree: Communication Disorders Sciences and Services, Other
Graduation Year: 2019

Attending Penn State was one of the best decisions I could have made. Everything from the application process to the graduation process was wonderful. The staff are always willing to help, whether it is through email, phone call, or just stopping into one of their offices. The faculty and staff are exceptional. After going through my academic program, I feel incredibly prepared for the future. The campus has so much to offer with extracurriculars and other activities. Students know it is a big campus so they make sure to include others so it can feel like a home away from home.

Degree: Labor and Industrial Relations
Graduation Year: 2019

This university is bursting with pride, as it should be. While attending I rubbed elbows with the best of the best academically, athletically, artistically, and philanthropically. There is a sense of community felt when you are with a group of Penn Staters that is not felt anywhere else, it makes you feel at home, welcomed, and important. I would do another four years if I could to continue my involvements with THON, to keep meeting incredible people, and to enjoy the beautiful campus.

Graduation Year: 2019

I highly recommend pursuing a degree from Penn State. Obtaining my Bachelors of Science in Veterinary and Biomedical Sciences was the most rewarding thing I have done. I learned about vital topics to my field and gained valuable research experience. I had the opportunity to gain valuable leadership experience and attend conferences, workshops and seminars that have all helped to shape me into the scientist I am today. In regards to fun and extracurricular activities Penn State offered various free events, movies, concerts and more. The campus environment can be really busy at times but their a various places and niches for students to escape to. Penn State is truly a campus for everyone, including first generation minorities like myself.

Degree: Art History
Graduation Year: 2017

Overall attending Pennsylvania State University was a great opportunity for me. The resources provided were extroidinary. My only complaint would have been the lack of connections provided by the Visual Art School to the business sphere within the art industry and the oversight of a joint art business program.

Degree: Human Development and Family Studies, General
Graduation Year: 2013

Penn State is a great school with multiple campuses, all with a different atmosphere. I enjoyed my campus and working with representatives from all campuses. The Human Development and Family Studies program is a great option for those that want to work in social services or social justice fields but don't want to be stuck in one specialty. It is a very broad, flexible degree that gives you many options when deciding which group or organization you would like to work in.
