What Students Are Saying

4.29 Average Rating
Just study at least a little bit every day, and you will learn the material plus save yourself time from cramming and pulling all-nighters a few days before tests/quizzes. Try to stay active on campus somehow, whether it is clubs or sports. Most importantly take it easy and enjoy your time here.
Shrut from Dalton, PA
When applying don't forgot to include every little thing you have done throughout high school, it will make a difference in the end, plus you will end up paying less money!
James from Conyngham, PA
Remember that college is an experience. Learn to balance schoolwork with social events and friends.
Come to this school if you like delicious food! The cafeteria at Scranton is AMAZING for college food.
Branch out and be social. You will find some of your best friends in life while at college.
Student from Oakland, NJ
Figure out how to manage your time as soon as possible.
Katelyn from Allentown, PA
Be outgoing, ask questions, if you're unsure of whether or not you want to join a club or play a sport, just do it you won't regret it
Current Sophomore
Branch out, join clubs, pay attention in class and put in the effort now--it only will get easier to adjust from here. Take advantage of all the programs and services offered by staff, clubs, professors, and resident assistants; its a great way to get to know people, get free food or t-shirts, and have fun and make new friends
Rachel from Staten Island, NY
Come for a campus visit! Get a feel for the atmosphere, and get to talk to some professors. Most of them get excited when prospective students express interest in the school and their departments. Sit in on a class or two and stay in a dorm room overnight. Talk to alumni and current students! They will be able to talk about their experiences and give you personal accounts of the wide variety of opportunities Scranton has to offer. Everyone's Scranton story is different. Apply early if you are looking at competitive programs, such as nursing, occupational therapy, or pre-physical therapy. Spots in those programs fill fast!
