Penn State is a wonderful experience if you try to branch out and get involved in clubs(100's of clubs and intramurals). Yes there will be some very large classes for 100 and 200 level classes but personally it doesn't effect me at all(just get there slightly early and sit in the front and you have the same feel as a small class room experience). Once you get into the 300 and 400 level courses classes will be between 15-30 students. If you enjoy sports this is the school for you. The football games will be some of the best times of your life and do live up to the hype. Even if you do not enjoy football, this is an entirely different experience with the spirit and chants. There are plenty of other sports to watch to which include, Volleyball(4 year straight women's champs/very fun experience with the band and most games are sold out at rec hall), Basketball(up and coming program with our new coach), wrestling, baseball. There is somewhat of a heavy greek life at this school however, I am not part of a fraternity and there are plenty of opportunities to party without being involved in Greek Life. The academics are challenging if you want to pick the difficult classes and most professors are very friendly and are willing to work with you. Some negative reviews I read were about how jerky the Frat guys are and how they are all drunks; I would say this is true some of the time however there are plenty of nice Frats guys that really do help the community. My simple answer if you are worried about these "bros" just don't get involved with greek life. I am excited for the next 3 years. WE ARE…PENN STATE!!! The grade I would give my school is an A+…with my bias aside I would give my school an A- or 91/100.
