Although I have only completed my first year of college at University of the Sciences, it was one of the best years of my life. Not only am I surrounded by fellow peers and classmates who have the same love and respect for education, but every staff member I have created a connection with work very hard to help us succeed in our courses! My professors made sure to involve themselves in every way, including check-ins, offering a helping hand, and genuine conversations involving life advice. Although my academic performance is a major priority, my mental and physical health was also a huge priority and frequently evaluated. Staff members took the time to make sure that their students were not only consumed by studies. This leads to many organizations, extra curriculars, clubs, and sports being created for students to have other hobbies during free time. With the care of experienced staff members, Usciences is a fun environment, but also a great place for success in higher education!

When the first conversation of online leaning was mentioned, it caused a wave of anxiety through the campus community since in-person classes were important for hands-on activities. Professors were only given a short time to come up with a plan for online learning. This also caused a panic within the staff members because they were not used to online leaning and ran into a barrier of technological issues. However, given a short notice of online leaning, all of my professors for the Spring semester handled the new difficulties with determination and care. They also took extra time out of their schedules to help students that were struggling more than others. This included extending deadlines for assignments, extending virtual office hours, and extra help with topics. My professors turned an anxious student into a relieved student. Despite in-person classes being preferred, my online leaning experience overall was a 5 out of 5 due to the extra care and love from my professors.
The University of the Sciences is a true example of absolute return on investments. As a freshman, I've come to see the diverse health profession tracks the University has to offer. This includes a Doctorate of Pharmacy program as well as a OT(Occupational Therapy) and PT( Physical Therapy) program. The small class size allows students to connect one on one with the professor, and gain the most out of their time. Speaking as a Pharmacy student, I find that the University of the Sciences gives the best opportunities to all their students when it comes to internships, fellowships, residencies, etc. Due to the small student body, the school is able to maintain their prestige and quality of education, especially their pharmacy school( first pharmacy school in North America). If you want the most for your buck, I would totally recommend the University of the Sciences over a larger school like Rutgers or Temple University.
