4 College Freshman

Academics: There are so many wonderful professors at Alvernia who really care, and are extremely interesting and helpful. This is the majority of the teachers, however there are a few duds which tend to be the adjuncts, but I'm not saying that all of them are, just a few. Overall, the staff and the curriculum is relevant and challenging, yet very beneficial and top quality.

5 College Freshman

Academics: Although I have just finished my first year as an OT, the program is still relevant and important with certain classes like A&P, despite it's difficulty, it is still important to prepare yourself for the more challenging classes ahead. Everyone I know in the program loves it, and find that the opportunities through fieldwork in their junior year, and the experiences that go along with it are very meaningful.

Academics: The teachers work hard to ensure a good education among the students. The curriculum varies according to your major. As a nursing major, my curriculum is very heavy and requires hours of work and study.
