What Students Are Saying

3.51 Average Rating
For a university in the city, there's enough grass to roll around on, and if not, Drexel, which has more greenery, is pretty close by! USP, UPenn, and Drexel are the three universities that make up University City, so we all share our resources. University of the Sciences is a great place to study, and center city, which is close by, is a great place to go out and chill when you feel like banging your head against the wall from the workload you're expected to handle, haha, but I love this place.

The education is outstanding as well as the professors. Everyone is always working hard and is an expert in their field because they are passionate and want you to succeed in your career. The workers are always friendly and caring towards you even at 7am.
