Degree: Data Science
Graduation Year: 2019

Penn State - World Campus has given me the opportunity to do more and be more but on my time. As a military spouse moving can make it difficult to have consistency with educational and career goals. Through the Penn State Data Analytics degree I can continue my degree studies from wherever the military takes us and I'm learning a skill set that I can use anywhere we end up.

Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2010

The facilities at this school were a little outdated. The number of faculty is growing though and many of them have funding to support graduate students.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2015

My degree from Pennsylvania State University at Abington has helped me land my job 2 weeks post graduation. The students are helpful and are always more than happy to help each other out. As far as my degree, I thank my wonderful professors for making my major worth while. They made biology easy to understand and enjoyable to learn.

Degree: Fitness Trainer
Graduation Year: 2013

I really enjoyed this school. Please stay in school and enjoy it! Take advantage of everything! Make friends outside your culture and nationality. Join clubs and adventure out because that's how life long friends are made. Stay focused in school and enjoy!

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2017

It was a great experience, online the teachers were helpful and I had a lot of help. Any technical problem because the classes are online were quickly answered and the teachers were very understanding of life outside the class room. The same teachers teach on campus so you get the same education and demands.
