3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Students on campus are very professional. Cohorts of students often get together to study or hang out. There is a very friendly atmosphere and students are able to become familiar with students with a wide array of interests.

4 College Junior

Drug Safety: I have not noticed students or faculty taking part in drugs or alcohol on campus.

College Junior

Athletics: Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine does not have sports teams. There are intramural sports organized by students to participate in but there are no varsity sports.

3 College Junior

Transportation: I utilize my personal vehicle to go to campus as I travel 30 miles. There is no housing on campus so there is not really a need for on-campus transportation to be provided. There is a bus stop nearby for students to utilize to take them to different locations throughout the city.

3 College Junior

Facilities: PCOM provides a very nice gym for students to work out in. The library is spacious and a nice, quiet study spot. There are benches outside of campus buildings that are nice to sit on when the weather is warm. It would be nice if there were tables outside as well so that students were able to do classwork outdoors.

4 College Junior

Facilities: Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine is a very prestigious school. I have heard of many positive experiences from previous and current students. Hearing about those experiences impacted my decision to choose PCOM for my graduate school.

4 College Junior

Weather: The only weather that affects my campus experience is snow. There were numerous snow days this past winter where the campus was closed due to inclement weather. I was glad the campus closed during the snow storms so that I would not have to travel to campus in poor weather.

4 College Junior

Diversity: There are many diverse students on campus. There are students of different race, ethnicity, ect. that I come into contact with every day on campus. Everyone is very welcoming and friendly no matter what race, sex, or background you come from.

3 College Junior

Computers: Printing costs are ridiculous. Students should not have to pay to print papers out in the library after paying thousands of dollars to attend the school. Printing should be free to students and faculty.

College Junior

Greek Life: There is no Greek life at PCOM.

College Junior

Campus Strictness: There is no housing on the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine's campus.

3 College Junior

Parking: Parking in the parking garage is expensive. I often choose to park on the side street if parking spots are available as there are no meters.

College Junior

Nightlife: I am not interested in the nightlife in Philadelphia. I know there are numerous bars and clubs throughout the city that offer different perspectives and places to hang out with friends.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine is located in the city of Philadelphia. It is a large city with lots to engage yourself in. There are plenty of restaurants to eat in. The Philadelphia art museum, Liberty Bell, and Franklin Institute of Science, to name a few, are great places to spend the day in Philly. The Philadelphia Eagles, 76ers, and Phillies have numerous games throughout the year and are a great way to satisfy sport cravings. Philadelphia also provides an excellent place for exercising, such as running or biking. I have enjoyed participating in the Rock n' Roll Philadelphia Half Marathon for the past two years.

4 College Junior

Academics: It is an honor to be a student at Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine (PCOM). The STEPPS program at PCOM is very unique and has provided me with the opportunity to practice counseling patients. Students and employees at PCOM are friendly and the school atmosphere is positive.

4 College Junior

Academics: The professors in the Master of Science in Counseling and Clinical Health Psychology program at PCOM are very helpful and knowledgeable. The professors provide first hand experience about what it is like to provide mental health services as many are counselors or psychologists as well as academia. The professors are also very helpful in providing one-on-one help and go out of their way to make sure students are learning successfully. The workload is challenging but has already increased my knowledge about the field of psychology and counseling.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: Grad school - so not much greek life

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Good experience because the staff and the students are very warm and welcoming people and we all are focused on becoming good doctors.

College Junior

Greek Life: There is not greek life on this campus, so greeks vs non-greeks in not an issue.

2 College Junior

Scholarships: The process of applying is usually easy and basic. The school requires parent information even if FASFA does not, which is inconveinent. I feel since graduate students do not qualify for Fasfa scholarships, the school should offer something.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: The only time I feel concerned is after class, which is about 8:30pm, in the parking garage. Overall, there is not a strong presence of security, but since it is a small quiet campus, it is not usually an issue.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: There are apartments within 5 minutes of the campus. The campus is also close to neightborhoods 10 to 15 minutes away, which are closer to more food and entertainment. Prices vary depending on the area. Parking can be difficult in some areas.

3 College Junior

Parking: The parking garage is right on campus. The cost is semi fair, but it starts at 3:30 which is not always conveinent if there are times you need to come early, and there is not a lot of free parking around. Therefore, anytime you need to come when the permit does not cover, it is an extra 5 dollars per visit. Furthermore, it is not always easy finding a spot. There is a lot of reserved spots.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: There is not much diversity on campus, however I have never encountered situations of intolerance and non-acceptance among my peers who are different from the majority (in relation to sexual orientation, religion, and racial/ethnic backgrounds)

2 College Sophomore

Computers: The computers are not very fast and not up to date. Printing is always an issue with old printers. Wireless access can be slow at times.
