Philadelphia University Reviews
Review Philadelphia University
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.
I have learned so much about the fashion industry since I've been a student here. Some of things I've gotten to do so far include creating a product for the school pop-up shop, volunteering at fashion shows, visiting showrooms in NYC, and meeting entrepreneurs, designers, bloggers and others who work in the industry. You also get to work on projects with companies in some of your classes, which is what I am doing right now. The classes are small so it's easy to get to know your professors and my professors have always been willing to help when needed. As far as social life, it is a small campus and parties aren't really a big thing. Neither are sporting events. However, there are other things to do and other places you can go if that's what you are into.
