Every staff member, from professors to student leadership, was helpful, friendly, and showed true passion for what they do. I love that, because the school is small, you get a personal experience with the staff and the students. Fear of failing or not being able to afford the school is backed up with lots of support and aid. They offer free tutoring all week and offer financial aid help and many scholarships. Though I am just getting started, I already love this college!

Harcum College is famous for it's Veterinary program and many travel from across the county to attend. Being on the luxurious Main Line in Bryn Mawr, where many Celebrities make their homes, you can find many high class shops and restaurants. However being a couple towns outside West Philadelphia crime isn't non-existent. Harcum boasts athletic achievements for their Basketball and women's Volleyball... and rightfully so. These sports teams are very good. The professors are knowledgeable and eager to teach. Your return on your investment will be what you make of it. The alumni often host trips to Philly sporting events as well.
The Veterinary Technology program rocks. I already had a degree in chemistry so the only courses I needed to take were the VET TECH courses to complete the degree. The director Kathy Koar gives each student individual attention (in my case she helped me design an accelerated course sequence). The professors are fantastic. Some are super smart and sweet. Many use their practical experiences (at UPenn’s Ryan Small Animal Hospital or private practice) to enrich their lectures. The students range from right out of high school to older students getting a second degree). They are all animal lovers. The profs manage to interest the academically well-prepared students while not burying the ones who are struggling. Can’t wait for the practicums at Ryan and New Bolton Center (equine).
