4 College Junior

Overall Experience: So far at my current educational institution, I have had a great experience. The education is designed to assist me with achieving my goals within my desired career. My favorite experience is when I began my first class related to my major. This school really focuses on the different majors that they provide. if I was a high senior again I would reapply and attend here.

Overall Experience: The class sizes are relatively small as we're a small university. There are a variety of classes offered, however, not enough room in the schedule to fit different things. The professors hold high positions in their field and love challenging their students.

Health & Safety: The HPD and Capitol Police patrol around the building sometimes, but I don't think it's enough with all of the shootings in Harrisburg. Students use the building 24/7 and I believe that there should be 24 hours security in both the Academic Center and Housing across the street.

Campus Housing: Do you want headaches and suffering for six months each year? Then, choose to live at HU. Worst experience of my life as a first time renter. I wish I had the knowledge I gained throughout this entire thing. The management is poor, the students are wild, drunk animals that destroy the building, and too expensive. PMI, the corporation that owns the building, NEVER fixed anything that was broken. Our toilet overflowed and broke the week of finals and my roommate and I had to WALK TO THE UNIVERSITY at 3 AM to use the bathroom for FIVE DAYS. I was so thankful to go back to New Jersey that weekend...

Want a beautiful, quiet place to live? Go to Pennsylvania Place or somewhere else nearby in Downtown Harrisburg. You'll definately save money and won't have to deal with crooked PMI and the school not ENFORCING rules! Don't do it!

Overall Experience: Moving to Harrisburg and living in Pennsylvania was a challenge coming from New Jersey. The students, mostly from Philly, were completely different than the people I grew up around in central Jersey. Many of them have a party mentality and I do not like that in an academic setting. It's a small school a block away from the PA capitol building. Housing is a waste of time and money. The staff are friendly and helpful at times, but are sometimes dissmissive and not clear when providing certain information. The professors are mostly phenomenal and strive to challenge us in all fields, not just our science majors. They didn't baby us nor treat us like juveniles. They gave us respect and expected us to meet their high standards with assignments and discussion.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Being right downtown somethings can get if-y but just remember to always have someone with you if you're out late.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Main focus is on getting you into your desired career.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I commute but am looking into living on campus, the rooms are basically mini apartments but are very costly.

2 College Freshman

Athletics: We don't have any school athletics, but are starting to get more people involved in athletic related clubs.

5 College Senior

Academics: Popular course is MS ISEM

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It great loving it an my classes

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The school populace is very small and diverse. It's a fun and unique experience, being right downtown Harrisburg. There's plenty to do and the academics are great.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Im confused about HU I can't figure out if it is legit or not. I read a lot of articles and reviews and it says that the University is a scam and people are not getting their money's worth. It's almost to a point where I'm embarrassed to say I attend because I don't want anyone researching the University and telling me the same thing that I keep reading in the reviews and articles.

Off-Campus Housing: Have fun living in the hood. Anything BUT HU's 1000$ per month single bedroom apts will be in the hood. oh and you have to stick two people into a one bedroom apartment that HU gets 1000$ per kid per month from. so 2000 for 800 square feet? You could afford a mortgage on a million dollar home with 6 bedrooms for 2k a month. Get your friends and do that instead.

Off-Campus Housing: Lots of options and the prices are very affordable for city housing.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: A ton of options, the only issue is that some places close very early.

3 College Junior

Administration: They are nice, but they often mislead freshmen and give out wrong information because they don't realize they are doing it. This bolsters expectations and kills the retention rates in the dorms.

Scholarships: The financial aid is really good and the process is super easy. When I first applied, I was really worried about cost, but I am going on my fourth year here and I have never had a single problem.

1 College Junior

Party Scene: Not good at all. A bunch of people getting drunk on terrible alcohol standing around while worse music is played.

Campus Food: The food options are great, but we don't have a meal plan meaning that there is no campus food. However, the school often offers free food on the 12th floor of the university which is always great.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: The housing is great and the rooms are very spacious. Although it is expensive, it is primarily due to it being University partnered housing, proximity to the school, and the fact that it is only one block from the capitol. The students in the dorm form a very family like environment and I honestly wouldn't want to live anywhere else. I just wish it was slightly cheaper.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: My financial aid is all payed off but my housing. It's so stressful because I thought housing was with the tuition and they people who works for my school told me and family something way different from the housing leader told me.
