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.

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.
This school truly is amzing. I would recommend.You get the best of both worlds by being near major city known around the world but having the most beautiful historical campus in PA. The schools total amount is definitely more like 60,000 a year but scholarships help but this school is so great it's worth it. They are very accommodating and so welcoming. I came from a place about 6 hours away and I felt so comftorable and I walked in knowing nobody. I would recommend this school cause you get an amazing education, name recognition (they have merged in with Thomas Jefferson University so now they are called Jefferson) and so much more. It's like the all around school with amazing medical, great sports as it is a somewhat athletic school, amazing buisness programs, design programs, architecture, and so much. Also there are great study abroad programs. Not just for seniors and juniors they have a 3 week program that freshman can do and take classes abroad.
