After DeSales University
- Very Good159
If you're going to go for business, your better shot is lehigh but if that's impossible for you DeSales should be your back up. Half the things you'll learn will have zero value in the future, and the programs are outdated. A lot of the things employers are looking for for business majors outside of Accounting is specialized industry program use, which DeSales does not offer. Coursework is tough, but worth it. The workload for required courses outside of your major are ridiculously hard, sometimes harder than your main courses. Some might think "oh this great! challenging work load!" but really it just pulls down your overall GPA and makes you look bad to employers.

I really like this school. The people are very nice and always willing to help. The class sizes are small so they are not overwhelming, and it is actually possible to talk one on one with my teachers. My favorite part is how helpful and welcoming the staff is! You can really tell the teachers care about you individually, not as just as a whole. They also make it clear that they want you to succeed, and will do everything in their power to make that happen. All in all, I am very happy I chose DeSales University.

The campus is too small. It is like high school all over again. Don't be fooled! They are really good at drawing you into the school and they act like they care but once you get there you are just another person. There is nothing to do, you feel like you are in a bubble. I am class of 2018 and I am transferring but I am not the only one. There was a handful of people who transferred after the first semester and that is a lot for a small school more than half didn't have roommates the second semester. Social life is important and you don't have one if you come here. I get that school is important but they act like it is a full time job here. You are supposed to have some fun. If you don't have a car on campus then you will be bored to death.
