Pennsylvania State University-Penn State Schuylkill is a wonderful community atmosphere with a beautiful focus on individual attention, research, and academic integrity. All of the professors take the time to get to know students on a personal level which flourishes networking. Also there is much help in preparing for the next phase of your academic careers.
Tips for prospective students
Attend all of your lectures! The professors have a great wealth of infomation to share with you, but you must attend your classes to take advantage of this infomation. Get to know your professors. Many of them went through the Penn State system themselves and can give you much valuable feedback. Take advantage of the tutoring center. It is incredibly helpful and easy to navigate.
Academic Rigor
Penn State has top-quality academics. Graduating from this University will prepare you for a competitive world. At Penn State Schuylkill professors have the time to help you one-on-one and student tutors are abudant. Everyone can succeed if they utilize the resources.
Dorm Life
All dorms here are actually apartments. They are very spacious and have full-sized kitchens. You would certainly not be in a cramped living situation. Resident Assistants are very kind, helpful, and understanding.
Food and Dining
The food tastes great but sometimes lacks in variety. It can be a bit pricey at times too. However, just spending holiday breaks away, so many of the dishes will be missed!
What to do for fun
There is great opportunity to participate in sports, clubs, and organizations. There seems to be a club for everything! If you want to start a club, all you will need is 6 people!
Bang for the buck
The University makes their best efforts to keep tuition down. You do not miss out on any opportunity or pleasurable cirumstance offered at higher education institutions caused double or triple the price.
Clubs and Activities
There are so many clubs to choose from leaving a ton of space for leadership opportunities!
Greek Life
Our first fraternity will be offered on campus starting Fall 2012.
Campus Safety
Our campus police are very capable and reactive to any possible situations. They are very friendly. They will even help you if you need a jumpstart, get locked out of your car, or would like an expensive personal item engraved for identification.
