3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: At Alvernia, the people and professors are very kind and want their students to do their best. I wish there were more events going on, but the events that are happening are fun. The classes are challenging but are very fair when it comes to exams and quizzes. Also, it is very convenient to have a car on campus as a freshman.

Campus Housing: Freshman dormitories are not the greatest but upperclassman dorms are great. They are very spacious and worth the money.

Athletics: I am not involved in any sports at Alvernia University. Athletics is a big part of the school, many people choose to come to this university because of the sports teams.

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: 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.

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

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.

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.
