Overall Rating

Penn State has been under fire the last couple years with scandals. When visiting Penn State Mont Alto, I had a sense of security. It was interesting to see the diverse student population. I am from a small town and I feel like Penn State is a good transaction. It is beautiful scenery in a forested area. I think It's a beautiful school with many things to do in your down time.
