There is no type of people that should attend Penn state berks the school. The school is more for anyone not a cretin type. But if you love the out doors and seeing the seasons change this is the school for you.

Kind. We are some of the nicest people I've ever met and we are extremely diverse. You'd be surprised to see all the culture that comes through our little town.

They are all Just like me. All throughout high school I have been on sports teams. I played football, rugby, as well as being on the dive team. It was because of this, that I simply had what I would like to call 'instant friends'. I never had to work to make friends because I was constantly interacting with people. However, my freshman year of collage started out very rough. I was commuting to school and found that it was half way through the semester and I hadn't made any friends. It is very difficult to make friends in class because everyone needs to focus on what’s going on, so there is no socializing going on. And as a commuter student, I did not have the ability to interact with my peers outside of class in the dorms. My only hope to make friends would be outside of class, so as a commuter student I decided that I would work out in the school's gym so I may have a hope of making friends. Now I had to entirely relearn how to make friends. I had never needed to approach total strangers in order to make friends, and I realized how shy I could be. Not all at once, but little by little I started talking to people, Only asking someone to be my spotter for a exercise, then talking about a certain exercise another day. I even went as far as to ask people questions that I already knew the answer to in order to start a conversation. before I knew it, I was regularly talking to people in the gym. Then I started to workout with the,, and finally I hung out with people outside of class. And now, I cannot wait for the fall semester to start so that I can continue to build my relationships with my peers..edu

The typical student is one who is doing a simple major. It is a branch school, which means most students start out here and move up to the main campus after 2 years. Those are the students that are going into more complex majors. The students who are doing simple majors, like general biology, stay at Berks their entire 4 years.

I would not say there is a typical Penn State Berks student. There are adult students, engineering majors, theater majors, transfer students, and many others. They all come from different backgrounds and may stay for four years or may transfer to another campus after two. They are all very different and for many Penn State Berks is a stepping stone. Any student who likes a small campus and does not mind commuting a few minutes since the school is more focused on the commuters.
