  • I don't dorm, but I stayed overnight once for orientation, and let's just say the rooms look like tiny jail cells, haha. However, I stayed at the lower ranked dormitory;…

  • The most popular freshman dorm, Goodman Hall, is squalid and pathetic. It is nothing more than a concrete jail. The rooms do not come with lights, the facilities are ghetto…

  • Goodman Hall is disgusting. The cleaning crew doesn't do their job well and students are even worse. They can't clean up after themselves.…

    The cafeteria provides many options but those options are not the healthiest of foods. Many of the students visit the various lunch trucks on campus as well as the Starbucks and new Dunkin Donuts. Being in University City also means being close to a plethora of restaurants with cheaper prices, catering to the many students living there.

    Food and dining is really bland and although the school tries to bring diversity and variety to each course, much of the student body does not favor it. There is only one dining hall and one student store which only stays open until 10PM. Most students choose not to eat the food offered at the university whenever possible.

    At first, the food seems okay enough to live with, but after 2 months or so, you start getting sick of the same food everyday. The only time when the food is good, is during lunch. The downside? They don't accept meal swipes during lunch...

    Good.You have the option to select from a multitude of food options available at the cafeteria to which you will find at least one that will be toward your liking.

    The food offered at Wilson dining hall is not the best, but it is good enough to get by on a day to day basis.

    The food and dining at University of the Sciences is actually descent for college food. There are many different selections at each meal, in which most of these selections are quite healthy.

    The Greek life is not very evident on campus. There is not much publicity and students only join to increase their social circle (which is really what Greek life is about).

    Greek life at University of the Sciences is very different. There are professional, community service, and social fraternities and sororities. Although the greek life is somewhat on the smaller side, the majority of students are involved in the greek life.

    Greek Life is very active and present, but the main Greek Life is not present. Do not come to the school specifically for a typical Greek Life because chances are we will not have the chapter. But that doesn't mean you have to discourage the ones that are here.

    Well everyone wants to get wasted after a test and without the greeks the thought of what the school would be gives even me the chills. They're legit. Some are sillier than others *cough cough* AST, but still they get the job done. There are not many though. I feel sorry for the very few blacks on campus bc there is no true outlet for them. Basically the sororities consist of a hot one, a slutty one, an artsy one, and one that doesn't try hard lol The frats consist of a nerd one, a weird hipster one, dbag one, pharmacy dbag one, oh and indian ones...lol There is one gangster asian one...
