University of the Sciences Reviews
I am an incoming Freshman at USP. So far, my experience has been great! The school is very diverse and welcoming. The dorms are pretty standard, not shabby- the only thing you need would be lights. However, USP is building the new dorms as we speak so that rating might change. The food is a bit...lackluster. Sure, it's buffet style and there are a lot of drink options and fresh fruit. The food is pretty standard. I'm not too worried about safety since there are a lot of precautions and security about, including access cards to get into certain buildings. Student life I am giving 4 stars because THERE ARE SO MANY CLUBS.
So far my experience at USciences has been great. I fell into the groove pretty quickly and I found a solid friend group. Everyone is very friendly and it's a nice community. The area is okay, there are run-down neighborhoods. But public safety is always on duty so that is reassuring. Pretty tight-knit campus, which I like. The walk between classes isn't bad at all. Food is okay, I personally got tired of it quick. Dorms are average, as Goodman is pretty old. But there's a new residence hall being built so that is a nice addition. Academics are great, the professors really want students to succeed. They really do care and are always there to help. Overall, this is an exceptional school.
University of the Sciences is not an easy school. The worst aspect unrelated to course difficulty is that the school usually does not listen to younger students, but instead only the concerns of older students are addressed. Otherwise, it is an excellent school with strong academics and provides many great opportunities for students wishing to get major-related experience before graduation.
