3 College Junior

Overall Experience: While this school may claim they are for the working student this is not completely true when a school does not offer options for classes like giving a choice between traditional and accelerated courses. Sometimes late assignments options are needed for the working student. A student has no time to get sick or deal with an emergency because no late work is accepted. Teachers are not too understanding because you only have 7 weeks to learn a subject

Overall Experience: I go to Peirce College for Working Adults. At Peirce College it is a smooth learning environment that is very peaceful. The staff really work together and they make you feel like part of a big educational family. They give you detailed information about everything that you plan to do at the school. Online learning i the best teachers communicate with you on a daily basis. Never once did i call or come in to the school and did not receive the help i required. I would recommend that if its your first time going to school then you should go to a small university that can give you the desired help you need to succeed in class.

Overall Experience: I love my school Peirce college because when im there i don't feel like a stranger. I feel loved im gald i can go to any teacher and ask for help and advice on my classes. When im there i feel like a giant part of huge family. At my school we have fun activities and festivals for all kinds of groups. I wouldn't change a thing if i had to do it all over because its close to home and there are tons of food places and close to Many bookstores and malls.

Overall Experience: Peirce College is for working adults and they really do help you when you need it. They give help online as well. The advisor's are nice and they get back to you in a timely manner. Not everyone is willing to go above and beyond for their students and I had professors who seem to care about us as a hole and I enjoy taking classes there.

Overall Experience: I haven't yet experience much at this school as of yet, so I don't have much to rate thus far.

Diversity: Peirce College has been partnering with other colleges and universities and organizations to develop the college's Diversity & Inclusion options. I appreciate student involvement within the decision-making process.

Academics: I am an Information Technology major and it is one of Peirce's inclusive majors. We have our own student association and we have bi-monthly meetings. The leaders of the IT Student Association are degree professionals and certified in most of the in-demand career fields of Information Technology. Under their leadership, I am confident that I will stay on top of my industry's current trends.

Academics: Peirce College offers several options for academic support, including on-campus tutoring and online tutoring through a SMART site portal "SmartThinking." On the SmartThinking website, I can submit my written essays to be reviewed by an online tutor (expert or first available) and receive a response within 24 hours. This option for learning is helpful during midterms and final exams.

Campus Quality: Peirce College is a closely-knitted community that is student-focused and offers plenty of academic and professional development opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students. After graduation, you receive tremendous support for smooth transitioning into the workforce. The facilities are clean and the janitorial staff is highly visible, working around the clock to make aesthetic beauty of Peirce College seamless.

3 College Freshman

Local Area: The local area is a high traffic area and unfortunate a hot spot for pan handlers and pocket thieves. Luckily that usually takes place within a 5-6 block radius of the campus.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Peirce focuses on adult learners and compliments my busy work schedule. With its accelerated courses, I am able to achieve my academic goals in a shorter amount of time as I would in a traditional learning environment.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Peirce College is unmatched in the category of receiving quality education from a private college at an affordable rate. Now with its flex-option, students are able to select whether they will be on-campus learners and online learners on a weekly basis.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Peirce College takes the most frustrating processes for transfer students (like Financial Aid Assistance and Admissions) and simplifies it for all learners. Plus the courses are accelerated. Peirce College is the most affordable private-college in the Greater Philadelphia area.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: I have dated anyone on campus but there are plenty of options for junior and senior students.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Most of the off-campus dining between Federal Street and Pine Street as fast food restaurants. However, vegan foods and pricier items are located between Arch Street and Pine Street. I personally favor the University of the Arts cafeteria options and their student discounted prices.

5 College Freshman

Administration: Peirce College is the college for working adults. Abiding by this standard, administration strictly enforces any unlawful activity that occurs on-campus or around campus grounds.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I appreciate the variety of scholarships that is offered at Peirce College. My only angst is that I wish the scholarships were offered year-round instead of once per academic year.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: I love the pricing of the food at the University of the Arts cafeteria. It is affordable and the food is delicious. You can purchase a lunch for under $6.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: I am still working on it

5 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Like I said im running start so for this year the high school pays for my collage but next year I have no idea how I will be able to afford it

4 College Sophomore

Academics: If you want to learn then you will but you only get out as much as you give in

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: its some what near the Lakewood town center so there are a few choices. Panera is my most favorite. There are other ones though too also the Lakewood town center is less then 15 min drive

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I am a seventeen year old in running start, this means I live with my parents so for me I love it

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: its a collage I think that because it is a smaller collage compared to others its most likely better but it is another collage.
