Penn State is a great university with a lot to offer. Some people are initially intimidated by its size, but this size helps to create a myriad of opportunities as well as fun things to do.

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.

Dec 08 2001Psychology
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.
