What Students Are Saying

4.09 Average Rating
Keep up your grades and prepare to find that you will be continuously challenged but with see that you have support from other students and staff members.
Jacqueline from Ashland, PA
This is a great school to attend for the sciences. There is a huge addition in the process of being built right now. It is expected to be finished in three years. There are small classes and the teachers really strive to know you and interact with you. I have not had a teacher that has refused to help when I needed help.
Abby from Bloomsburg, PA
If you get the chance to apply to do it. It's a great school.
Keyla from Allentown, PA
I highly recommend visiting this beautiful campus several times before starting classes so that you can really get a feel for the university's atmosphere. While at school, I also suggest meeting with the professors one on one (even if you think you know the material) because it will give you more confidence about your knowledge and it will also provide you with a greater relationship between you and your professor. Also, take advantage of the free tutoring services on campus and don't be afraid to ask the upperclassmen or your Teaching Assistants for help and advice.
Danielle from Leesport, PA
Apply early, especially if applying for a guaranteed seat. Do not blow off your senior year of high school, grades still play a role in college acceptance.
Samantha from Wilkes Barre, PA
Go for it. Relax during interviews. Staff will be up front with you from the beginning. Coaching is offered for future interviews.
