Review DeSales University
I absolutely love it here. The student body is incredibly friendly and the professors are (mostly) above average. They have a really big emphasis on getting involved, so everyone has a really awesome support system. Orientation was one of the best weekends of my life. The sports games here (however few) are really fun to attend. It's a relatively small campus here, so most of us mind our own business, it's never really a judgement zone. The most popular majors here are nursing and theatre (or so I've gathered). The only downsides that I can see are that it gets REALLY windy here in the winters, and if you don't have a car on campus be prepared with gloves and hats and coats, etc. The food is also okay, it's usually hit or miss some days. We're really close to a shopping center and a movie theatre and a bowling alley, and there are frequent trips to nearby cities and events, and sometimes beaches when it gets warmer. So you're never bored. I absolutely love it here.
Overall, Desales University has a very beautiful campus. The professors along with the curriculum provide a high quality education for all students. Although it is a smaller school, many activities and clubs are provided in order to keep the students busy. The desserts are fantastic and the meal plan in general is great. The campus is extremely safe, therefore there aren't many parties either. However, there are many universities in the area where parties can be found. The dorms are very comfortable and all the other buildings are nice as well. If you put the hard work into your education at Desales, you'll definitely receive a return on your investment.
DeSales University has been a great experience for me so far. I am a freshman lacrosse player in the 3+3 PT program. I believe this school provides a lot of opportunities for students not only academically, but also physically and spiritually. The professors are all very supportive and available. All the students are extremely welcoming. The small number of students who attend the school gives the school a very familial feeling. Everyone knows everyone, your class sizes are small.
