Our Students

Information on the undergraduate student body and the academic learning community at the Penn State Smeal College of Business.

Penn State Smeal College of Business students represent the top of their high school classes; they are academically driven and leaders of their student groups and organizations. They come from across the country and around the world with more than 60 countries represented among the study body.

When you choose to enroll at Smeal, you are choosing to become part of a community where integrity is a fundamental part of the culture. Through standards outlined in the college’s honor code, which was started by students, we strive to practice ethical behavior whether it’s in the classroom, at an event, or during an interview.

A Home for Business

State College ranks among the top college towns in the nation for being student friendly and accessible. It offers a vibrant nightlife, theater and concert performances in a variety of venues, spectator sports galore, and ample opportunities for outdoor activities across the region.

“I knew that once I got here I would have a great foundation of people who would look out for me and put me in a place to be successful. I knew the generosity of the environment and I was comfortable. But being a business school, I didn’t expect it to be this close knit.” –James Dowdy, Smeal sophomore
