Overall Experience: I love the small classes and community we are!

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My experience was that the school really made it seem like they were hard on drinking and partying. That wasn't the case at all. On the weekends, it's almost everywhere unless you decide to stay in your dorm. I don't like that environment so I really didn't want to stay anymore.

Overall Experience: My overall experience is rated as "it's the best" for many reasons. Alvernia University provides its students an opportunity to explore each course and evaluate it to ensure that it was relevant to individual students' academic pursuit. The hands on in learning each course was profound. The knowledge acquired in class was in alignment with the experience each professor brought to the class.

Overall Experience: It has the curriculum I want and allows me to have a flexible schedule because I work full time.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My classes as a first semester freshman are relatively difficult but they are challenging in a positive way.

Overall Experience: i go to Alvernia in schuykill county its small, but some Instructors are the best. they know what they are teaching and talking about.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I have experienced the power of a school family, and by that I mean my peers in my selected major are like a family to me. The teachers I have are the best role models and support system I could have ever asked for. The campus is a beautiful place to be and everyone is friendly towards each other. You would definitely get a sense of community while being there.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My first semester of school wasn't so well because I didn't get along with my first roommates and people were talking about me. My second semester there was a lot better. There wasn't that much talking about me and I had a roommate I got along with. I joined the Social work club and my experiences there are amazing there. I'm really enjoying my major

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The atmosphere is great. I enjoyed my freshman year at Alvernia University, however the food is what got to me. It wasn't that great

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I knew when i stepped onto the campus of Alvernia it was for me. I think what sold me was how close everyone is, amazing part of Alvernia is the students helping each other. The campus itself is so cute and homey

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My school is super small and personal unlike the other schools I've visited. It has an amazing vibe and everyone is friendly there. I couldn't be happier with my choice.

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.

3 College Freshman

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.
