4 College Sophomore

Academics: very challenging yet rewarding, teachers help you

3 College Sophomore

Academics: the school is small so there isn't a broad selection of professors

4 College Senior

Academics: Scranton is known for our nursing and science programs. If you fall under those academic fields you basically have no life. The school is Jesuit, so you must take religious and philosophy courses--they are a pain but most students graduated from private catholic high schools (unlike myself). Professors are tough, YOU HAVE TO GO TO CLASS or they WILL fail you. Classes are a lot of work.

3 College Senior

Academics: I am a Communication major with a Broadcasting track and a focus in Art and Design. Here, Comm. students are known to have excellent grammar and writing skills which forced on us very early in the major.
