| Although the university has several official departments dedicated to the promotion of racial/ethnic diversity and fair treatment of women and sexual minorities, they are largely uneffective. Furthermore, there is a clear blue-blood, white, upper class "penn state football rules" attitude which prevails in the personalities of a vast majority of the students here. Finally, the University Park campus is surrounded by vast, very rural areas with a huge amount of racist, backward thinking people. Not a fun place to be if you happen to be a racial minority, or Gay/Lesbian/Bisexual/Transgendered. If you belong to any of these oppressed groups, then I would seriously reconsider your decision to attend here. |

| Its isolated location provides an optimum learning environment. |
The engineering department is very developed and provides great opportunities for its students. As for being just a number at such a big school, you are what you make of yourself. The bigger the school, the more opportunity you have and the more directions you can take.
