I have family in the state college area and it always draws people in because the schools are good and the crime is low. For young people starting out it is mostly a nightmare. It is difficult to find a job that will give you the hours you need or the pay that you deserve. In my experience if you work hard you can move up quickly but the pay typically will not reflect the added responsibilities. I have worked in many different types of work and all and all I think that state college is a hampster wheel. The whole town caters to the students because they make up such a large percent of the population but if you don't work at the university it is difficult to find opportunity here. It is a nice place to raise children but if you don't have a great job lined up prepare to live paycheck to paycheck until you decide to move.

It is difficult to make ends meet in this area if you do not have an established career. The rental rates are very high compared to what employers are willing to pay. This is a college area and the students usually have there parents pay there rent and then work for spending money, if that is financially the situation you are in then this place is as good as any.
