Despite being a "party school", and full of some rather assholeish students, this is an excellent place to be. The academics are quite challenging and the teachers are eye-openingly compassionate and patient. With the exception of some egotistical and too personal art-department professors who teach courses that first years are forced to take, the teachers for the most part grade quite fairly, and treat students like equals. This university has a large focus on mental health and student well being, and this message is spread all throughout the campus, and each student really feels cared about. Despite being filled with many students who simply want to be hedonistic and party, this is a great university and would not choose to go anywhere else.
Overall, not a very stimulating scene here; both in social life as well as classes (although some professors are very good). Save your money and look for a better school or work in the "real world" for a few years, will learn more from that than PSU.
