Students in the forensics field do a pig dig where a class murders a dead pig and buries it. they then go out to find a pig body from the previous year's class to analyze it and find a cause of death. this is just an example of how much this school can teach and prepare one for their future.

    Not a mom-friendly university, unless you are online, no daycare. Most of the female students and staff do not have school age kids. Post-graduate placement and alumni opportunities are lacking for graduate students. Student's are rarely hired to be a part of the staff after graduation. Some student jobs are available, but fairly limited.

    From Housing the the classroom, HU is a one of a kind school. The school has a direct focus on science and technology but also focus on business and many other majors. Overall its a great school with a lot of new and exciting things happening.

    I love what this college has to offer. It has small class sizes so I'm sure I won't be left out or feel like so. I can't wait to actually visit the campus to see what the Harrisburg community is like.

    Harrisburg U is a great place to be. It's confortable, and everyone knows everyone. It's an amazing change from high school.

    I think the school could use more extracurricular activities. I like how small and close nit the student and faculty are. However, I find it too expensive.

    Very small class sizes. Professors get a chance to really get to know the students. Low level of student activity outside of academics.

    So far I have found the school to be very unorganized. Being a mother and wife it's location is very convenient for me. This school for me is all about convenience.

    A great new university dedicated to preparing students for careers in STEM areas. Small class size and personal attention are tops. Moderate tuition and fees are a great plus too!
