3 College Junior

Academics: I am a Biology major. The workload can be overwhelming at times. However, that is to be expected in any science-related majors. The science facilities are up-to-date and well kept. I enjoy many of the laboratory experiments conducted in Chemistry, Biology, and Anatomy & Physiology classes. The internship opportunities are posted throughout the science department hallways and posters.

4 College Junior

Academics: There are many academic majors that are able to pursued at Alvernia. Most the majors are accredited as Bachelor Degrees. The registration process is relatively easy. Students meet with their designated advisors and then select their classes each semester before a specific deadline. The workload varies between every major.
