Penn State is a wonderful place to go. There are many activities, tons of things to do, places to meet people… It's a very free environment. The key is that YOU must assert yourself. Because Penn State is so big, fun won't find you: you have to look for it. And it's not hard—there are so many clubs, organizations, teams, activities, etc. to get involved with that if you don't take advantage of at least one, you're wasting a fabulous opportunity.

The level of school pride is very great. PSU students may complain about different aspects of the school, but generally, if someone from a different school starts to complain about PSU, they'd better back off: we don't take kindly to strangers talking about about our home. And that's what it becomes… your home.

Yes, there are some problems. Some people take the "#2 Party School" title too seriously sometimes, there are a lot of sorority girls (so if you don't like Uggs, that could be a problem), and it gets really cold in the winter. But people who complain about these need to loosen up. It's college: open your mind.
