I did really like the school but it was on the cold side and a very overcast city so during the winter you didn't see the sun much. Also that made the snow not melt which just turned into gray sludge.Desert wrote: I've heard only good things about Penn State. I visited the campus once, a long time ago, for a football game. Cool place. I think PSU fits well in the B1G too. Big school, good academics, great football tradition, lots of drunken undergrads wandering the streets. It's beautiful.
And I was there when it was voted the #1 party school in the country (2009). I never got too much into the party scene but did have my fun there. It always bothered me when I'd be getting out of the labs at 1 in the morning on a Wednesday and people were STILL trying to get into clubs. Didn't these people go to class?? I also never went to a game while I was there. I only ever went to one college game (Georgia Tech vs UMiami) because it was free.
I was also glad that I had another school to talk about (Georgia Tech) for where I said I went to school when the whole Jerry Sandusky stuff was exploding in the press.
