5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Right next to the school. Very convenient and big varies

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The professors really care and take notice to you. They actually want you to succeed rather than just fail and take your money

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I don't really know yet but I've heard it's great

3 College Freshman

Athletics: We don't really have one

4 College Freshman

Diversity: I've seen a lot of diverse people around campus and everyone gets along just fine. Some are close friends.

5 College Freshman

Nightlife: Teehee very cute and appropriate. No drinking. No drugs. Nothing to serious or scary to worry about especially with it being held within the dorm building and with high tech security.

5 College Freshman

Majors: I've been told they're great if you have a high GPA. I, personally, haven't had one yet.

5 College Freshman

Majors: I've been told it's hard at first but the professors are kind enough to help.

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: You never once feel unsafe while on campus. Having visits isn't that bad unless your roommate has a issue with it and in terms of noise. It's for the greater good of those who are studying. They're very considerate of the students and want to students to be mindful of each other.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Everything is so close so I never have to go far. Especially the clothing and food stores. It makes things like carrying food home very convenient and helpful. Not to mention less stressful.

4 College Freshman

Academics: The professors are very understanding and caring of their students.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I had some troubles but the director was very kind and helped me through everything. I felt stress free and very calm after he explained everything too.:-) :-)

5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Everyone is very nice and outgoing. They are very open and love to break people out of their shell. Very welcoming as well and festive. They are creative with events and want everyone to feel comfortable and stress free. They are very willing to give any advice that may be needed. Also they're pretty funny!!

5 College Junior

Diversity: Everyone accepts each other for who they really are. We don't have a problem with racism or sexism at our school. We are very friendly and accepting of every gender, sexual orientation and that is definitely one thing I really love about HU. There is a place for everyone.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: They're strict with some things are lenient with others, which is confusing at times. The student handbook states that students can't have a visitor stay for more than 2 days but some people have friends over for weeks at a time. Then there has been times where students would get in trouble for having music playing at 8 pm when quiet hours are from 11pm-11am.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: If I had the chance to go back and redo my school choice, I wouldn't change a thing. The faculty here treat me like an actual person; not like a child or a number. My first two years have been excellent and I plan to end well here too. In class, we learn, yet we laugh too and classes are enjoyable. I always have a story from class for my roommates. It is very easy to learn and enjoy what we are learning. I love that I can walk in the hall and stop to have a full fledged conversation with a faculty member and they ask how my mom is doing because they remember something I told them last month about my family.

4 College Junior

Majors: Getting into my program of Forensic Science was difficult at all. There were a few lengthy essays to write but they were well worth writing since it got me scholarships for my program. My admission counselor was very nice and always helpful and even two years after I got into my program, he still contacts me to make sure that I am okay.

5 College Junior

Majors: I absolutely love how small my classes are. My forensics program is like a small family and that includes the professor. Dr. Robert Furey is an excellent teacher, always smiling and very professional. He has helped me greatly in the past year to get my projects done and ensure that I know which direction I am headed in toward the future.

3 College Junior

Facilities: The resident director at our school is excellent and constantly hold housing get together in the schools such as movie nights, ice cream parties, etc. There's not much to do outside of that for students who are under 21 around our school unless you have a car. The library is always filled with students. Everyone knows everyone here and we all pretty much hangout together since the RD likes to keep us close.

4 College Junior

Facilities: That fact that it's so small makes the students feel important. Average class sizes are about 15-20 people so all the professors know you by name and are completely willing to stop what they're doing to help you out. More than half of the students at Harrisburg University receive financial aid of some sort and our school, being a private school, isn't as expensive as other private schools. The academic programs at our school each have professors who work in that field and the students get hands on experience in what they want to do in their careers.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: Our campus administration ensures our safety with high security, both in and around our dorms and school. There's not a health facility at our school yet, being that it is a very small school but we do have a hospital in walking distance and a few urgent care centers several miles away.

College Junior

Greek Life: Our school is too small to have a Greek life so far. If we ever get bigger, I think that people would LOVE to join sororities and fraternities if given the chance to do so.

2 College Junior

Athletics: We don't have actual sports teams that the school sponsors. We do have athletic clubs that raise their own money and clubs that meet at nearby fields to play random games. Many students do, however, try to get the school to get us a few things, like a football league or something.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: Sometimes I get all I need for the semester but then other times my family has to pay out of pocket which is unfortunate. I would say, apply to absolutely everything you get an email for because you never know where you will get the money from.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: It was very comfortable living on campus. The school is very close to the residential buildings so things like the cold or rain didn't really prohibit us from getting from point A to point B. The dorm rooms are built like apartments, so I only have to share my bathroom and kitchen with two people which is very comfortable. Upperclassmen get first pick on which "apartment" they would like to have the following semester and who they want to live with as well. The cost is a bit pricey but all worth it in the end.
