The University of Scranton has such a friendly and welcoming environment! Academics challenge you and professors make sure you're prepared for after graduation. Many opportunities to get involved with the school and the social aspect of the school is very lively.

Scranton is an incredible school. You'll feel right at home as soon as you step on campus. For themes part all the teachers are amazing and caring and if you put in the effort you can do very well here. The school is mostly focused in the health sciences, pre-med, and business. Advisors are extremely helpful in making sure you have your life together. However, the campus is not very diverse and our athletics are lacking except they are building a brand new athletic complex this year! Food is also fantastic!! You can't go wrong when you have access to a chick-fil-a in your student center! The local area is not always that exciting but there is local shopping, a nearby trail with a waterfall, malls and restaurants. The school is usually so busy that you don't actually ever actually want to leave campus.
Some great things about Scranton were the friends I made, the academics, and the activities on campus. Unfortunately, I find that the cons far outweigh the pros. The friendly facade of the Jesuit university and its employees fades after the first month. The "community" is extremely cliquey and consists mostly of white, upper-class, Catholic private school kids. Many are nice but the others are only there to party, drink, and waste away mommy & daddy's money. Financial aid is awful and will not help you unless you're the child of a rich family. Food is great the first month then gradually declines in quality; it only gets better when there are prospective student tours on campus. Also, there is a burglary or sexual assault every weekend that the students are notified about thanks to campus police. Overall, great academics, nice campus, horrible aid, awful surrounding area.
