Penn State comprises of a collective mix of different types of personalities, so it is very hard to standardize what a typical student looks like. Many students are very outgoing and sociable, hence the reason that they came to such a large school, and get rather involved with their preferred on-campus activities. Students also tend to be fairly athletic, and enjoy either working out or participating in a sport of some sort. The general student body is very interested in the traditions that Penn State has, including going to football games and THON, the student-run dance marathon.

The typical student - laid back, somewhat apathetic party goer - is different than the type of person who should attend PSU.

With such a big school, there really is no typical student. Not to mention most students find themselves mixing and matching between social scenes.

This person must be a diligent worker, who takes responsibility for his/her academic success and integrity. He/she must put in the hours of school work dedication in order to reap the benefits of being a full time student. This student must put in the estimated 30 hours of studying per week in order to get ahead and be prepared for their future. However, with all of this hard work, this student also needs time to de-stress and take upon hobbies, like THON. The biggest student-run organization is THON, a 48 hour dance marathon that raises money for pediatric cancer research. Many students dedicate their time and travel to locations through out the U.S. in order to raise money. This student at Penn State University must care above all else.

The other half are people who partied a lot in high school and go to Penn State because it is considered a party school. They major in communications and business. And then there's the few and far between students like me, who have a really hard major that provides zero time for partying and I'm a nerd who isn't trying to be someone that I'm not.

At Penn State, there are currently upwards of 40,000 undergraduate students. This does not mean that it is an easy school to get into, for the most part, most of the students I have seen have been fairly committed to their work, regardless of their college or focus of study. Of course, this does not mean that the average Penn State student is a super-focused studying machine. The students at Penn State are notorious for their love of partying. So, I'd say the average Penn State student is one who works hard during the day and parties hard at night. People who attend Penn State campus should be able to handle a good deal of stress and know when it's time to work, and when it's okay to go out and have some fun. Of course, the type of person who attends Penn State should also be okay with not knowing most of the other people attending their university. With close to 40,000 students, it is beyond easy to become just another face in the crowd. Some student enjoy the anonymity. Other students find a way to stand out above the rest. Some decide to get involved in clubs and join small academic groups to lessen make their environment seem a little smaller. Others get involved in sports. Some work with things like student government. In short, if you're happy with a certain level of anonymity, Penn State would be a good fit. If you're not comfortable with that, it is possible to stand out, it just takes some effort.
