All of the professors that I have had while attending Slippery Rock University have done their best to help me in any way while in their class. They are all willing to meet with students who have questions on the material inside or outside of class. Classes are not all the typical sit down-straight lecture. Most teachers here try to keep their students focused and learning while creating an enjoyable environment. The student to teacher ratio is also very good. The classrooms are no bigger than twenty-five or thirty students per teacher so that each student gets the same amount...

    Slippery Rock is a clean comftorable campus, but lacks many modern amenities such as filtered water and public transportation to Pittsburgh, which is about an hour away. Overall, the classes are worth the affordable price and the campus has a wide array of activities and clubs, but it is not for people who do not enjoy living in the country.

    Slippery Rock has a beautiful, safe campus, as well as a friendly student body and great academic programs. About 8-9,000 students undergraduates attend SRU, which makes the school just big enough that you can see a new person everyday, but still have a few familiar faces in the crowd.The town is small, and there isn't much to do on the weekends, but the school is located about 15 minutes away from the Grove City shopping outlets and Morraine State Park, so it's not impossible to find something to do.

    I have met so many different and new friends through the few short months I have been a part of this university. This university has provided me with so many opportunities, new memories and friendships that I would not trade for the world. This place is my home, it has my heart forever.

    This is such a great school. It has a great small town atmosphere but it is also a short drive to Pittsburgh. The professors are always welcoming and helpful.

    A very close university with everything within reach. The dorms are very updated and nice. Only downside is that the area is very hilly.

    There are many different class options and extra activity choices available to all students. FYRST seminar was a great class for first semester students to take because it gave so much advice on study skills, scheduling, activities, finances, etc. There is always something to do, right outside of campus there is a strip of stores and restaurants, tattoo shops, a hookah bar, there are sports and extra activities that the university offers and many LLC activities.
