HELLO!
My experience at Philadelphia University has been really pleasant. From the moment, I considered this school until now I have been given great customer service from everyone in the facility. The one thing I really like about this university is how they have advisors checking on students all throughout the semester to ensure they are okay. Philadelphia University has many programs to offer students along with the perfect amount of help.

I have had a great experience at Philadelphia University. I feel that I definitely get a lot of opportunity for career growth, and I will have had 3 internships when I graduate. One of my favorite things is how diverse the school is and how beautiful the East Falls Campus is. I just hope with the merger, design remains as important to the school as when I started!
Interactive is the keyword which sums up my entire college experience at Philadelphia University. Everything from the uniquely styled classrooms, beautiful campus, to the supportive faculty and staff, it is a great way to get the most out of a university experience. However, communication between faculty and students still needs improvement, it makes up for in surveys, students can fill out to provide feedback which the university actually follows through! Overall, Philadelphia University is a beautiful school which will provide students with real-world experiences by having them interact with people from various industries.
