What Students Are Saying

3.92 Average Rating
DeSales has a beautiful campus and a friendly environment. The people and staff here make one feel so at home, and they strive to help you in anyway they can. The small college feel is not a detriment, but a benefit.
Stefanie from TELFORD, PA
My first impression of DeSales was that it was not for me and I did not fit in with the types of people there. Although I still do not talk to a lot of people, I found my group of friends and they have made DeSales worth going to. The academics at DeSales are phenomenal and I think I will be extremely well-rounded and prepared for anything after I graduate.
