This is a small school. This school has a growing incoming freshmen rate. This school has a variety of students.
Kristin from Titusville, NJ
After I transferred to Alvernia from reading area community college, I saw a huge difference. The campus is much quieter and the teachers really get to know you. There are so many great majors, and with the help of the great faculty, I am sure I will succeed.
