What Bert Has To Say About State College Metro Area

Not surprisingly, the name State College is fairly self explanatory. The town is built around gigantic Penn State University, which provides the town with the usual college amenities, steady employment and sports entertainment. At some 40,000 plus in number, the student body outnumbers the town’s non-student population (which is highly educated, almost 40% possessing four year or graduate-level degrees).
