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.

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.
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.
This is an amazing school with some great teachers. They really care about there students and want them to succeed. They are very helpful in finding internships. They will also help you when looking for a job after graduation, they will help you with everything from how to dress for an interview to filling out your resume.
Penn State is an amazing school. Although University Park may seem like a very large school to most, it becomes small when you become apart of the family there. You will bleed blue and white. The Kinesiology program and it's department are one of a kind. Many of the professors there are doing top-level research and highly regarded in the health and fitness community. If you are choosing this as your major you are certainly going to be among some of the brightest minds in the field.
I had a great experience in this program at Penn State. The department of communications treats its students really well and respectfully. Whenever I had a questions via e-mail, I was always answered in a timely fashion with answers and options. I LOVED my teachers, who always took time to help me and help me better my skills. I am still friends with a few to this day.
Both the English Department in the College of Liberal Arts and the Journalism Department in the College of Communications are well-rounded and student-focused departments. I thoroughly enjoyed my time at the university and learning within each of these departments. Both of my degrees opened several doors for me and helped me to hone in on my passions and what I wanted to pursue as a career. The professors and faculty are all intelligent and accomplished people and worked with me to be the best student I could be.
The Psychology program at Penn State is an exceptional one. The best part about this program is the array of different psychology classes you can take, including classes about clinical, counseling, abnormal, social, developmental, perceptual, and organizational psychology (plus many more). I would highly recommend Penn State if you wish to major in Psychology.
The Pennsylvania State University does not only breed some of the most elite caliber students I have ever come across, but they are also some of the most enthusiastic and school spirited individuals. I was born and raised in Las Vegas, NV and decided to travel almost 3,000 miles to attend college. I wanted nothing to be familiar. Fast forward a couple years after a wonderful graduation, I still come across enthusiastic alumni almost monthly. It astonishes me every time I see a fellow Penn Stater and proudly chant "We are!" as I pass by. I never fail to receive the very familiar response of "Penn State!" with a smile stained on their face. The University has such a togetherness that I long for everyday and I can't wait to experience that with my new school at Arizona State University.
