I love being a textile design major. I have the ability to access looms from the 1800's and gain an experience from every aspect of the textile world including knitting, weaving and print design. I have also had the opportunity to apply for study abroad opportunities although this is beginning to become very limited. The atmosphere created in the classrooms is very creative and down to earth but with some classes it can become quite intense especially with the work load. I feel as though I am being adequately prepared for my future career and have even gained an internship in New York City because of the reputation that perceives Philadelphia University in its textile program. All of my professors have been extremely insightful, some of which are graduates from the University, and I have learned a lot! By having these individuals as professors I have had the opportunity to network even further and have been able to help with getting a job/internship.

I love my major (textile design)! I've learned so much about textiles; things I didn't even think would be important. It is a very creative major so teachers expect us to be creative and do things on our gown. Although, when you need them they are excited to help. In design classes or textile-related classes, we usually have big projects. There is mostly a lot of time given to you. As long as you don't procrastinate, you'll be fine (which is a flaw of mine). It is definitely a hands-on major. My teachers were the best! They are very experienced in the fashion industry.

The safety and security on campus is great! They are open twenty four hours, seven days a week and can always be contacted by phone or email. They are easy to get a hold of and students on campus can find a security guard very easily day and night for assistance. Throughout the day you will see a security guard several times and there are even emergency buttons sites on campus that can pressed and directly link you to safety and security. Within in minutes a guard will arrive to your location and assess the issue. Since the security and safety services are always open and around on campus I have always felt safe. The campus is located within a residential area thus there are always people around and even walking back to me apartment at two in the morning alone I have felt safe and secure.
