Most Helpful Review for University of Scranton

The classes can be challenging at times, but are very worth while and you will learn plenty. The science classes tend to be quite challenging but aren't too bad. The philosophy classes are quite interesting and make you think quite a lot about things that you probably have before. Overall, you will learn but won't kill yourself in the process.

    The University of Scranton is not diverse, most students have intrest in partying, drinking and drugs. It is also very cliquey here. The school is good for students interested in occupational therapy, nursing, and pre professional studies. It is also very exspensive here even with financial aid. Wifi services barely function correctly. Counseling services here are not as supportive as they should be. I was assaulted and didn't receive proper assistance. There also isn't anything to do off campus. Students often get robbed and there are also a number of burglaries that occur in off campus housing. Class sizes are small and most students are friendly. I would not recommend the college for students who are not party animals, and are from the minority group, or have low income. I honestly feel that for the college to cost almost 60k there would be better services for students.

    One thing that everyone notices when they step on Scranton's campus is how homey it feels. This atmosphere, coupled with faculty and staff who are willing to work with you and get to know you on a personal level, create a learning environment unlike any other I have seen. In my time, Scranton has offered me endless opportunities, and I am proud to call myself a Royal.

    The University of Scranton is a Jesuit University in the small city of Scranton, PA which is nestled in a beautiful valley in the Pocono Mountain area. Students and teachers are so kind and are always looking to help out others academically and socially. When attending the University of Scranton, students receive an excellent education and say they feel as if they grow to be more independent and learn to understand themselves on a deeper level.
