University of the Sciences Reviews
Review University of the Sciences
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.
Since coming here in 2013 (and expecting to graduate 2017 and in 2019), the university has really made the effort to improve and does not look like what it did 4 years ago. They have renovated the dining hall, have plans to create a new freshman/sophomore living space, more educational space, and has a new marketing campaign. Even the landlords around the area have been doing new construction to modernize the living space for students once they move off campus. While I agree that greek life wasn't what it was back in 2014 when I joined, it still has a lively spirit on our campus. Going through one of their accelerated programs, it felt disjointed at first (possibly due to my impatience to "get to the real stuff already"). It was a matter of taking further classes and seeing the material continuously integrate itself. I can say I proudly see myself growing into being as a strong, entry level practitioner.
Overall the school is great. Very diverse and lots of people to meet and interact with. There are always new clubs being formed and intramural sports to play with friends. The school does theit absolute best to ensure the students do well academically, which includes free tutoring and individual meetings with professors. The downside being that the educational requirements are difficult and stressful, but the school offers a great support system in every aspect.
