5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love that my school is very focused on community service. I feel that giving to people in need is some of the best things you can do.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love my school for the student body. The people who choose to go here are what I consider to be quality people, who care about learning and looking out for others. The faculty also cares for the students and they all do what they canto help us out when we are struggling. My favorite experience was probably Orientation because everyone made us feel so welcomed and important. I knew I could go to and talk to anyone if I needed anything, which was exactly what I needed when starting a new chapter in my life.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It's a nice small quiet school which is great for shy people like me, but definitely not a college town.

Campus Food: Although the dining hall looks appealing with its "buffet" or "all-you-can-eat" meal plan, the food choices are horrible and most of the time tastes bad. On occasion there are good meal choices. At court side and kestrel cafe the food is terrific but overpriced and the times are ridiculous.

Campus Housing: At my university, our campus is in the middle of a suburban community. The campus is small but the social atmosphere is excellent because everyone can get to know each other. I live about an hour and a half from my school and it is convenient sometimes but not convenient because of the off-campus parking. I love the way the dorm rooms are set up sort of catty corner to each other so I feel as if I have my own personal space.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: My boyfriend used off campus housing and it was convenient to the school and suited his needs. The price was more reasonable than living on campus.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: There is a large variety to choose from in the area of campus. I now live at home so I don't utilize this as much as I did when I lived on campus.

Administration: They seem to fairly strict on most policies which is why I feel secure attending there.

3 College Senior

Scholarships: I would recommend that you speak with an advisor as they can help find aid and scholarships that you would not be able to do on your own.

3 College Senior

Party Scene: I actually don't have time to attend parties as I am either doing school work or working at my job

3 College Senior

Campus Food: A large to choose from-courtside had the best options

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: I lived on campus for a year because I wanted to feel included with my friends and be apart of of the group even though my family lived 20 minutes from the college. I loved the feeling of being on my own and being independent and responsible for myself. Most classes were a matter of a 5-10 minute walk so it was very convenient. If classes were further than that they supplied a shuttle bus to take me. I only lived on campus for a year and have since moved back home because of the expense and knowing that I would be responsible for paying the housing loan.

Greek Life: We only have one fraternity, not the normal Greek life of most colleges.

4 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: We have a great gym that is available to anyone. Basketball games are usually the highlight of the week.

2 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: The only apartments near campus are at 525; which the police frequently visit and are small and unsafe.

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: Not many places have student discounts. We need to drive at least 10-15 minutes to go eat.

3 Recent Alumnus

Administration: This is a good campus. Rarely anything bad happens but public safety walks around all the time and knocks on doors for no reason.

3 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: The financial aid office at Alvernia is slower than other colleges.

1 Recent Alumnus

Party Scene: The few people that do throw parties, usually get caught or they are terrible.

2 Recent Alumnus

Campus Food: If we buy someone else lunch, it should be able to count as a swipe and we should not have to use our flex dollars. The food in the Student Center is very rarely appetizing.
