My overall experience at Harrisburg University of Science and Technology was absolutely amazing. One of the student administrators took me on a tour and walked me around the beautiful campus. I explored the many different classrooms and dorms. One thing that I extremely enjoyed was the set up of the dorms and how spacious is was. After I explored everything I took my placement test. I was very nervous but after my nerves rubbed off, I believe that i did very well. The environment of the University and the diversity was just right for me. Everyone was nice and had a positive attitude. I am extremely anxious to start my freshman year at Harrisburg University of Science and Technology in the fall of 2017!
Review Harrisburg University of Science & Technology
Moving to Harrisburg and living in Pennsylvania was a challenge coming from New Jersey. The students, mostly from Philly, were completely different than the people I grew up around in central Jersey. Many of them have a party mentality and I do not like that in an academic setting. It's a small school a block away from the PA capitol building. Housing is a waste of time and money. The staff are friendly and helpful at times, but are sometimes dissmissive and not clear when providing certain information. The professors are mostly phenomenal and strive to challenge us in all fields, not just our science majors. They didn't baby us nor treat us like juveniles. They gave us respect and expected us to meet their high standards with assignments and discussion.
This University is very hands on, and very personalized to the major you desire. It is for sure a science and technology school, and if looking into the business degree offered, I would suggest going elsewhere. There are many travel abroad opportunities for field studies as well.
