Delaware Valley University Reviews
I recently transferred from Rutgers to Delaware Valley and I can honestly say it was the best decision of my life. Everyone is genuinely kind and friendly, professors are willing to help and are eager to teach, and students enjoy the smaller class setting compared to larger schools. Everyone at DelVal is willing to help you move in the right direction for your career. I only wish I came here sooner!
Great teachers that really care about your future. Small intimate campus. Farm life makes things fun and interesting. BUT kind of boring, and PARKING SUCKS. Very good school for animal and plant sciences or sports/ business / criminal justice. Art and med student prospects should look elsewhere!
In 2010 I started my Bachelor's Business Administration Major and I have only 18 more credits to go! The teachers, advisors and entire college atmosphere is both accommodating, and convenient for my educational experience. I highly recommend this university in PA.
