4.0

WHAT I LIKED

The scenery is nice and well as the smaller course sizes to get more one-on-one experience with the professors here. There are professors who challenged our learning in a good way. Overall, going to Penn State Behrend was the best decision for me.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Penn State Behrend is a smaller campus with few professors teaching the same courses. So the student's cannot pick and choose between professors or course times well for the software engineering major. There are a couple of professors that I've had that make the program difficult to learn.
