Trip to Penn state was a good one . however even with the great fans we ran into, and the great weather. The only thing we did not like, was the three hour wait to get out of our parking spot. We had a fun time, and would like to thank everyone

My family started it's experience with this school in 1919. Four generations later, We've seen many changes, some good and some bad. The bad, they seem to have lost their way in teaching the classics, and unfortunately the school is now best known for watching students throw a ball. The good, the Science, Art, and Music programs are world class,... More

The stadium(s), practice fields and sporting facilities are really first class. This is a state school with character and a well laid out campus. Literally everyone wears Penn State 'gear' which means that school pride is very high. It says something that local area residents also stroll the campus. Wonderful art gallery inside The Hub exhibiting student works and the... More

This was our first time visiting State College. Penn State is really a pretty campus, just what you imagine a college campus should look like! There is a mix of old and new, beautifully combined in a perfect little college town. I can see why people love to go here to school!

Beautiful campus.. Lots to see and do. Beaver stadium is even better in person. It is so nice to walk this campus in the fall.

This university is spread out; however, we easily walked from one end to another during our visit. There is parking all over and the grounds are very well kept.

We spent 2 days in State College on a fall foliage travel week. The campus is a luxury to walk around - no one strays off the sidewalks. First, that's amazing and second there are green green greens everywhere. On campus & off there are lots of sporting events & performances we wish we were around to see (they seem... More
