Holy Family University Reviews
Review Holy Family University
Holy Family University (HFU) is a great school for students who are looking to be in a small and personal classroom environment. Every professor wants to see their students achieve great things and they do all they can do help students succeed. HFU is located in Philadelphia, so students have access to many types of educational opportunities and internships. HFU is a pre-ivy league school and students who attend HFU are often very committed to their studies. Additionally, while HFU is a Catholic University, it is open to many students of different races, ethnicities, religions, sexualities, etc. HFU is a welcoming community that aims to make every student happy and comfortable. If you're looking for a small, cozy school in the city with great access to academic opportunities, then HFU is the school for you!
Before attending Holy Family University, I did not like the idea of going to college in the same corner as my high school, Nazareth Academy HS. However, within my first semester at this university I met one of my best friends, and rekindled with an old high school friend from freshmen year. The grading system is the same one that was used at Nazareth, meaning my grades are gradually the same or have gotten better. I am enjoying the time that I have been here at Holy Family, and encourage my high school friends to apply here as well! It is both helpful in academics, and financials.
Holy Family University is a great school that provides great academics. Although it's a small university, there's a better chance of making friends and becoming close with professors because the classrooms are small. Even though I transferred to Holy Family in 2016, I felt like I've made friends within my major that I can communicate with about class, etc. The only thing I dislike is the grading system because it is similar to Harvard's grading system, so that pressures me to work even harder and study more.
