DON'T ATTEND THIS SCHOOL! I went to the University Park campus, and then transferred to the online World Campus. Both were terrible. This school's biggest sell is partying, and football. They are closed-minded, and NOT at all kind to minorities, and they're homophobes. I actually received an email from the University's President after an incident in October 2013. White students (unapologetically) wore "blackface" and KKK costumes for Halloween (see link below). This upset many minority students, and the school's only response was an email. Asians are openly made fun of, and forget it if you're gay or lesbian. Please, please, please stay away from this school! Especially if you're a woman who does not enjoy the prospect of being date raped, and no one caring after you report the rapist. You will be disappointed, and waste your parents money. The financial aid packages are nonexistent. The teachers are dunces, and their English is poor. The teachers' born in America are even worse. Typos by the ton. The World Campus courses are excessively outdated in some areas. For example, my Biology teacher constantly had to change the grades on the weekly quizzes because the answers did not pertain to the newer edition of the assigned materials. Also, many links to the assignments we had to complete were dead, so she had to update it as we went along. Admittedly, this was one of the better professors, kind of. The administration are f**k ups, and I had three different academic counselors in the time I attended Penn State. There is nothing to do but drink, party, and watch football games. There are a ton of clubs, but who cares, since no one actually participates. This school is all show, and nothing about it is worthwhile. I ended up applying to another college after I got fed up with the atmosphere. I will be attending Columbia University come Spring. I am more than happy to pay the extra money, and the financial aid is better, including scholarship opportunities. To summarize my opinion of Pedo State University...STAY FAR AWAY!!!
