4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Personally, I feel very safe on campus. Being a design major implies that I have to walk at 2 or 3 am back to the dorms from main campus multiple times a week. If there is any situation that I do not feel safe there is always the option of calling someone from security to walk me over where ever I have to go.

Overall Experience: Class sizes are very small, this gives the opportunity of better understanding because of the "one-to-one" students get in the classroom. This also gives the opportunity of really engaging and getting to know your professors and classmates. Courses are very effective and every single one have multiple learning goals. Every class style is very different. It all depends on the course one is taking. For example, studio classes were students are constantly engaging and helping each other are very different from a math or science class were sitting quietly listening to the class.

Overall Experience: Philadelphia University's strongest characteristic, in my opinion, is the networking it provides to students. Every major has its way on putting students out in the professional world. Numerous professionals in their fields come to give lectures and meet prospect students. Also, the career center facilities make sure that every single student is getting involved more and more every semester and prepares them by offering mock interviews, verifying resumes, giving any type of information regarding to one's field of study, and on how to start or continue to get exposure with companies and researches for internships. For example, every student has to go through the course of Writing 201. In this course, one of the assignments is to get a resume approved by career services, effectively starting to prepare prospect students.

Campus Housing: Personally, I love living on campus and in the dorms. Living in dorms have made me meet a lot of people. The cleanliness of the dorms is ok. A lot of time it might be dirty but, it gets cleaned once in a while. After the first year of college, were students are given the chance to choose where they want to live, student definitely pay for what they get. The cheapest living options involve not so nice facilities in comparison to the expensive living options. The social atmosphere at Philadelphia University depends on where you live. Some places you see movement of people, while in others you are isolated. For sophomores, the housing selection process is very stressful because they choose after seniors and juniors. This means that they have to deal with whatever options are left (each has to have a plan A, B, and C because the probability of them getting their first housing option is very small). But, for the upper class men, housing selections is very easy.

Greek Life: Greek life on campus is not big. Fraternities and Sororities relate to the different majors. They are mainly joined to get networking on your field of study. Non-Greeks are indifferent to Greeks. We are al part of the same community, and still hag out with the same group of people. At Philadelphia University there are no housing available for Greeks.

Athletics: Philadelphia University's athletic are composed by many international students, which is very cool to see how they choose to come and participate in this university. One of the most popular sports in this university is basketball. Students always attend the home game to show their support (dance teams and cheerleaders as well). The gym is amazing and it is always packed through out the day. I can't think of machines that may be missing. Also, the athletic trainers are easy to approach and know what they are doing. They definitely take good care of their athletes.

Overall Experience: my favorite experiences must definitely be working with a variety of cultures and people on studio. My school is unique because of the fast pase and competitive architecture and design programs. If I had to do it all over again I would still choose Philadelphia University because in my major, I consider to be the perfect hard working program for me.

Health & Safety: There is an excellent security around the campus, cameras and phone booths in paths in case of an emergency. Security often passes around in cars patrolling the campus. A lot of security to enter dorms and buildings when there're not any classes.
