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.
Philadelphia University's strongest characteristic, in my opinion, is the networking it provides to students. Every major has its way on putting students out in the professional world. Numerous professionals in their fields come to give lectures and meet prospect students. Also, the career center facilities make sure that every single student is getting involved more and more every semester and prepares them by offering mock interviews, verifying resumes, giving any type of information regarding to one's field of study, and on how to start or continue to get exposure with companies and researches for internships. For example, every student has to go through the course of Writing 201. In this course, one of the assignments is to get a resume approved by career services, effectively starting to prepare prospect students.
The athletics center known as the Gallagher Athletic, Recreation and convocation center is an ultra modern facility that includes a large selection of cardiovascular machines, resistance machines, free weights and many more amenities. With a wide selection of varsity and intramural sports available, it is very easy to become part of the athletic community. Amongst the eclectic sports we have in school, my favorite is the basketball team as there is no sport more American than basketball. I remember the night we finally got our 1000th win after an initial loss against Wilmington. It was one night I realized the extent of school spirit.
