YOU Meet World: Study Abroad at Pennbrook University

With classes taught by Cory, Topanga, and their kids (you read right), a semester at Pennbrook University is sure to delight even the most adventurous of college students. Just don't fall for Shawn's tricks and good looks. You’ll make memories that will last a lifetime, and learn lessons that will forever shape your future.

If you’ve always wanted to find friends that were like family, then Pennbrook University is the perfect place for you. Even though it looks like there’s a close inner circle, Cory, Topanga, Shawn and Mr. Feeny will welcome you like a brother or sister, even though you’re an exchange student. After all, blood means you’re related, but it doesn’t mean you’re family.

Life Lessons You’ll Learn at Pennbrook University:
  • You’ll never end up making promises that you don’t have any intentions of keeping. And you won’t end up saying things that you don’t really feel.
  • In the words of Topanga, she can do her thing and you can do yours. She’s not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this world to live up to hers. You are you, and Topanga is Topanga, and if by chance you find each other...it’s beautiful.
  • Respect your elders. They really do know more than you.
  • When you find love, you hold on to it and cherish it because there is nothing finer, and because it may never come again.
  • Believe in yourself. Dream. Try. Do Good.
Nothing in life is a guarantee. But even if you don’t know what’s going to happen to you, after leaving Pennbrook University you will know that you’re going to be a good person who cares about people. And you can blame Mr. Feeny for that.

Wandering Down This Road That We Call Life

10/10

Pennbrook University was amazing! I've never felt so much support from faculty like I did at Pennbrook. I could go for extra help during office hours, or just chat with any of my professors. Topanga was always willing to help me with my lady problems! I would also visit Mr. Feeny all the time just to talk, he has so much wisdom to share!

I would definitely recommend Pennbrook to anyone, but I might try to figure out your own housing if possible. I stayed in the campus dorms and got stuck with this crazy guy named Eric. Funny guy, but kinda weird...

What the heck does Mr. Feeny teach?!

9/10

I had a great time at Pennbrook! I really felt like I grew as a person and I had blast at the same time!

When you first arrive you get an orientation packet that explains exactly how to wear a flannel shirt tied around your waist and how to get your hair to be the perfect combination of super huge (if you're a girl) and artistically falling in your eyes (if you're a guy).

I especially loved Mr. Feeny's class, although I could never really figure out what we were supposed to be studying... I think it might have been history, although what I really liked were his inspirational talks. He gives such great advice! The best thing he ever taught me was "Life’s tough, get a helmet.”

How can this program be improved?

It was a little weird how every day we seemed to get caught up in a madcap adventure, full of misunderstandings and a lot of teenage emotions, only to learn a really important life lesson in the end. But whatever!
