    PhilaU offers a great twenty-three month Occupational Therapy Assistant program. Classes consist of two evenings and some weekend hours. The instructors are wonderful.

    Philadelphia University has a wonderful campus only 15 minutes away from Center City. Everyone at this school has been warm and welcoming to all students. The classes are well thought out, and programs are flexible to students wants and needs.

    The staff is friendly. Unfortunately, the administration seems to get paperwork confused/misplaced. The financial aid office was not helpful when I asked for assistance in finding private student loan providers (simply said they could not help).

    It is an overall good school. I wanted a school in the city but it is a 30 minute bus ride to center city. Good school for textile design.

    The campus set up is quite secluded from the road which makes it quite nice. When the weathers nice, everyone is outside on the campus socializing, and making public events more exciting. Having a smaller campus and less people gives you a good opportunity to become intimate with your professor, allowing you to question more things and have more in depth understanding of your future career. And even though that the campus is not in the heart of Philly, it is only 10 mins off driving or taking the train.

    I love the small community feel. Classes are smaller which allow me (personally) to learn better. Its expensive although they do give financial aid but it's well spent.

    It's very involved in their fashion, art and medical students. They win numerous awards for having such hard working students. They are diverse but it's way more Caucasion to any other race.

    Philadelphia University has an amazing campus filled with amazing classmates and educators. Despite that the east coast has a too-busy-to-smile-at-strangers demeanor, PhilaU breaks this mould by making students feel like family. I love this school and would recommend it for anyone who can find a major they're passionate about here, esp. design students.
