Terrible university to be in if you're aQuite BrightBusiness - Management and Administration
Terrible university to be in if you're a big city person - People come to class wearing loose baggy pyjamas and slippers , totally grubbed up look! --- the uglier u look, the cooler you are ! - if you look good, you are abnormal!

Too much football so if ur not into it, its boaring!
I transfered out to Boston University and could not tell you how good its been ! - Penn state was misery!

The public transport is terrible , takes a lifetime if you want to get to anywhere by greyhound - u HAVE TO have a car if you need to do anything! - i found the people very strange and were just into their own small little towns and didnt seem to know about anything else .

If you're a cool big city person and want to hand around cool people and see the good things in life, then this place really sux!

Check out the class size -
Economics - 400 a class
Accounting - 400 a class
Psychology - 375 a class!!!!!!!!!!
I MEAN GIMME A BREAK , how do u expect to study with soo many people with u!
AND SOME SOPHOMORE BUSINESS CLASSES - 800 a class!
So u get 0 value for ur money if your an out of state or international student!Lots of racism everywhere on campus ,I DO NOT RECCOMEND THIS PLACE TO ANYONE!
