I like that class are small it makes it easier for the professors to get to know all their students. I also like the friendliness of the staff, they really help you if you need it. The school does need more parking, there are a lot of students that cumute there.

As a commuter, I'd rate my experience here as alright. Parking is a nightmare most days. On-campus food is bad. Professors care about your education and make an effort to know you and help you. Classes are small, good environment for learning. Students are cliquey, but not in a bad way and you're bound to find a group of people you can relate to. A lot of adult and veteran students. Lots of clubs/organizations to get involved in. Most students commute, so the campus nearly empties on the weekends since there aren't many parties or social events. People are generally nice, but most seem reserved and not very outgoing. Sports teams here are pretty good, but sporting events are not a big thing for other students. Lots of great opportunities for internships around the city of Reading.
