University of the Sciences Reviews
University of the Sciences is overall an amazing school. They have amazing lab programs that give you hands on experience and also insight on if you would like to work in a lab one day. The faculty are very compassionate about what they do and are very willing to help you do your best in the class. It is easy to get touch with a professor with questions since there office hours are posted on a syllabus, and they are respond quickly to emails. In addition, this school also helps out with networking and building on public speaking skills by having project fairs. The fair helped improve my confidence in speaking publicly and my knowledge of the topic that was chosen. I would like to see change begin with the biology and chemistry labs be related to what is being taught in seminar classes. Some of the labs would seem unrelated to what is learned in the seminars which wouldn't really help students like me who excel at learning by being hands on.
University of the Sciences is a solid school. The dorms are rather standard. It is a small school so that may be positive depending on preference. The food is okay most of the time. There are a lot of clubs and greek life. One may struggle with a college experience since the workload is usually pretty heavy. They do maintain their goal in helping the healthcare industry. I had some great professors and found a nice entourage of friends to get me through the difficult workload. As with any other college, it is as one makes of it.
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.
