Harrisburg University of Science & Technology Reviews

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!

Harrisburg University is a very small school and classes average to about 9-15 people in any given class. While this may be a selling point for some relating to academics it, unfortunately, has a negative outcome on the overall student life at the campus. The parties are small and few but can be fun, the city is extremely lackluster except when it comes to places to eat and the dorms are nothing to write home about. If you want a hands-on education experience with suitable professors then come here if you want the "college experience" go in the exact opposite direction.
i am currently a high school junior at Bowie high school and i got accepted into Harrisburg university.
i have visited the school 4 times and i must say i loved everything about the school its my dream to attend and be part of the loving environment. i wish to use this scholarship money and use it for my books reasons being that i don't have enough scholarship money and my family isn't financially stable.
i strongly recommend this school to any student who intends doing computer science and or science in the future. The school is well dedicated and willing to help all of their students study in any ways they can! my older cousin is recently a graduate from the school and she graduated two years back with good grades and good character behavior i intend to continue what she started by Gods grace.
