  • At Philadelphia University they do the best to make dorm living as comfortable and smooth sailing as possible, but they could still try and get air conditioning in all the…

  • Decent, but worth the experience. I liked the experience at PhilaU because most of the 1st year undergrad students are dorming and it is fun to see and communicate with…

  • Freshman dorming can be anything from okay to absolutely atrocious. On-campus apartments are nice, though expensive. Townhouses are not the greatest option. Many choose to live off-campus as soon as…

    Ravenhill food gets old. They only serve the good food at START to draw you in. If you live in certain buildings, you are required to take the most expensive meal plans.

    I absolutely love the dinning facilities at Philadelphia Universities. Not only because of the wide variety of choices for every meal. But one thing that really reeled me in was that the head chef insisted if we had home recipes we loved, to bring them in and he would make them at times on our request. Thats amazing, how many schools do that for you!

    The food actually recently got much better at the dining hall. Quite the variety, and they have the typical greasy to the healthy veggie foods. The food is not like high class, but it is still pretty good. Then there is Kanbar and Common Thread, which is a cafe/lounge type area which sells pizza and other foods everyday which is pretty decent. They're kind of like the dining hall, but a little better. Not as many choices, but the quality is better.

    There are four different places to eat on campus, one on the side of campus with the first-year dorms, and the other three either on or closer to main campus. The food isn't the highest quality, but it is usually good.

    The quality of food is okay, but after a month or so the choices begin to get boring. Fortunately, there's a dining committee that is usually successful in getting students the foods they'd like.

    The food is good and the dining halls are nice. I have heard horror stories about other colleges. You will be satisfied dining at PhilaU.

    Simple, easy-to-follow meal plan and the food isn't half bad. Many different options are available, and they try their best to accommodate anyone with special dietary needs as well.

    There are a few fraternities/sororities on campus, but they're not huge. No special housing is given.

    PhilaU has no frat or sorority houses and only a small handful of greek organizations, most of which are professional, not social--the social ones are pretty much a joke though. There is a textiles fraternity, leadership fraternity, law fraternity and many more. All fraternities are coed.
