Good educational experience. Great relationship between campus and town. Tremendous flexibility to structure educational foundation due to the vast number of majors. Good combination of athletics for both men and women. Good diversity of student population - undergraduates, graduates, nationalities and races. Despite the large size, small interest groups can be created and cultivated.

Penn State is amazing! You will not regret going here, ask any alumni. There are a lot of students and the campus is big but you don't feel like a small fish and a big sea. There's a lot of opportunities you can't get at other schools because of Penn State's size and valued reputation.
