I've read the negative comments…where do these people go to school?? Certainly not my Penn State.

It's simple to have a good experience here…DO STUFF! I don't care what your into…there's a club for it. IM sports, club sports, anything. We have a Harry Potter club, political clubs, community service, foreign language, chess, you name it. If it's not here, start it. It is a big campus, so you need to embrace new things if you want to make friends besides the one's on your floor. Greek life is a social life, but it's not necessary to do it. Just do shit.

The key to classes is scheduling…always do you research and find out who the best profs are before you blindly take your classes. Yes, some profs are assholes. Such is life. There are so many great, inspiring, life changing professors. Find them. (

Do work. You don't have to go crazy (well I guess some of it depends on your major) but study. Don't just cram before your exams.

The weather sometimes is gross but whatever, it makes us happier when we find good weather.

PSU is great. You'll like it..
