1 College Freshman

Nightlife: There's no nightlife. The campus is deserted on weekends.

College Freshman

Academics: I haven't gotten to my core classes of my major, but it has been okay so far. I do think it's weird that an Animation major has to take Pre-Calculus and biology, but whatever. The design classes are no joke. Drawing classes are helpful.

4 College Freshman

Academics: It's great if you are going into design. They have a variety of design majors, which is nice. I'm not sure about others.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Basketball and soccer are the only sports I know about here.

College Freshman

Parking: I don't have a car here, so I'm not sure

3 College Freshman

Transportation: Campus shuttle is good, but SEPTA is really bad..

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: They can be strict on drugs

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: It's alright, I've heard better things from others

Off-Campus Dining: To get to an actual restaurant, you'll have to walk 2 miles or drive somewhere.

Campus Housing: I haven't had any issues living on campus. The lounge is a disaster though.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel really safe here

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: If you are going to major in fashion design, architecture, or textiles, then perhaps this school is for you. Anything else, you probably shouldn't bother. They don't pay too much attention to any other programs that aren't design. Don't expect a party school, because the social scene is pretty much non existent. Most students go to other campuses or off-campus apartments to party, because there is nothing here. And if you don't party, there really isn't anything for you to do on the weekends. The school barely has any events going on, and when they do it's probably a hypnotist show or something. Students don't really attend the events, even basketball games. There's really no school spirit going on.
As a freshmen it's difficult to get around without a car. I think the best way to save money if you want to go to this school is to go to community college for the first year or two, and than transfer. I've liked all of the teachers I've had here, but the students all seem a lot alike. Many are fashion majors, or are from PA. Cliques start to form the very first day, so it can be hard making friends.

Local Atmosphere: Without a car, it can be really difficult to get to where you want to go. The public transportation is not so good either.

3 College Freshman

Weather: Fall and Spring are fine its just winter with snow. I have to carry art equipment arpund and let me tell you that is not light. Winter just holds an unwanted pressence with snow since I do have to carry around equipment and have to ravel on foot to get across campus and onto the public transportation by bus.

3 College Freshman

Majors: I am only a freshman, and I am acctually not sure what to do as far as interships go? I am majoring in Animation so I guess I should start looking into that?

College Freshman

Athletics: I have no idea. Due to my transportation methods, I unfortunatly don't have time to connect to the campus like so.

College Freshman

Nightlife: I have no idea. Again, I only go on campus when I need to for classes.

1 College Freshman

Campus Dining: As far as I know of, there is only about 2 major places to get food and neither of them have quality. Most of the time the food tastes like depression. Most students get sick pf eating the same type of food everyday as well.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: The school is located right near the city of Philadelphia. I'm assuming there is quite a bit to do. However, its difficult getting to and from places especially in the city.

2 College Freshman

Transportation: I am a commuter who cannot afford a car and thus has to take a 2 hour bus ride just to get to campus. In order to get to school, I need to transfer 3 buses and I almost just got scheduled with a night class which would have been very unfortunate because the transpertation center I need to transfer buses at is not a safe place for a young white woman to be.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Again, commuter. Also, only on campus when need to be.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I am a commmuter so I am only on campus when I need to be.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I have no idea I am a commuter who doesn't need off campus housing.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I origianally wanted to go to a school in Florida, however, due to costs I was unable too and now I am stuck here in Philadelphia University. Although this school is really nice, it is just not where I want to be. Ya feel me?
