5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Overall I could not be more satisfied with my college experience at the University of Scranton thus far. I am recieving a quality, liberal arts education consisting of excellence and creative learning. Scranton's mission urges service to others and "magis," which is one of the many reasons i love my school. The community of students and teachers is helping me become a better student and preparing me to be a succesful, caring occupational therapist one day. I have had so many great service opportunities and experiences at Scranton that make my school feel like a second home. There are many school spirited events and whether it is attending these events, going to basketball games, or doing interesting group projects and papers for class, I would not trade the experiences I made at Scranton for anything. Our school is unique for its unyielding love and support for being men and women for others and reiterating the Jesuit values. I owe it to Scranton for helping me discover the person I truly want to be, a person who serves others and gives back to the world we live in. I would not choose a different school if I had to do it all over again. In fact I almost did not choose Scranton and I am overjoyed and thankful everyday that I did. I could not be happier for what Scranton has provided for me and I look forward to the years to come. I could not be prouder to say I am a Royal!

Campus Food: On campus dining was better than I expected. Especially, compared to other college dining their options are delicious. They have a wide variety of foods depending on what you like to eat.

Scholarships: Applying for financial aid was fairly easy to get, and the people were nice and complied to your needs.

Campus Housing: The dorms are cleaned every week and taken care of. Although expensive, it is completely worth it to live on campus.

Campus Food: The food upstairs is really good but there is not enough seating and the lines always make it so it takes too long to eat.

Greek Life: We don't have greek life

Athletics: We don't have a football team. The sports are a joke. No one goes to the games and theres no school spirit. Not a real college experience with tail gating and football games and cheerleaders. Its bad.

Off-Campus Housing: The houses are big, but they're absolutely disgusting. The only ones I've been in are the ones who throw parties. But even when they haven't had parties in a while the house is still gross. It's nice to have the freedom but I don't think i would want to live in them they're nasty.

Off-Campus Dining: Theres a really good sushi/hibachi place within walking distance, but its pretty expensive. There is a vegan restaurant I've never been to. And then theres a couple pizza places. Thats about it within walking distance. However, if you have a car there is a Panera, a new Chipotle, and a few other popular restaurants in Dickson City which is no more than a ten minute drive from campus. If your parents let you bring a car as a freshman and park it on the street, I definitely recommend it.

Party Scene: If you partied a lot in high school, this isn't the school for you. I was going to bars and clubs before I even got to college so it took a lot of time to get used to going to crowded house parties where I didn't know anyone. I felt uncomfortable. Its annoying having to wait on the keg line. If you like to get drunk, you definitely have to get f*ed up before going out to the houses because good luck getting drunk from just the beer. The parties here suck if you were a partier before college. Everyone told me how fun this school was and stuff but it really isn't the real college experience. Theres a couple bars here but no one under 21 really goes to them.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Most people I know have scholarships of some sort. I even got one and I don't even know how I got into this school. Many people, however, are stressed out about keeping them and they seem hard to maintain.

Campus Food: I sometimes would think that the food wasn't the best, but when I went to visit my friends at other schools we definitely have better food than most schools. Sometimes the serving sizes are a little small but you can go up as much as you want and get more food if you are still hungry. There is a decent amount of options, the salad is good too if you don't see anything you like. Weekend brunch is the worst though. The food is good but you wait on line for like at least 30 minutes to get an omelette.

Campus Housing: The freshman dorms are a pretty good size in comparison to other schools I've seen. The sophomore dorms are even smaller, but you also have your own sink and own bathroom so theres an advantage you don't have in the freshman buildings where you have community showers and toilets. As long as you don't have a terrible RA and are able to make friends with the people on your floor it isn't bad.

Local Area: Scranton is one of the most economically depressed cities , if you can call it a city , in America. Its been ranked the least happy city in the country. There is a great deal of poverty , but the Center for Service and Social Justice has an abundance of opportunities to help.There is very little , if anything to do ,that doesn't involve alcohol in walking distance to campus. There aren't even any major grocery stores in walking distance.Find a good friend with a car if you want to go skiing,or to the store. The only decent shopping is not in walking distance , and the bus is a bit of a hassle. The movie theatre in walking distance is closed , and the Mall at Steamtown is in foreclosure.

Administration: They're ok ,this is no Catholic University of America of Franciscan U of Steubenville. Let's just say on the spectrum of Catholic universities , this one won't make the Newman list anytime soon....

Scholarships: This really depends on what your family can or cannot do. Its a very expensive school, scholarship and grants are available, but its college and you will bear some financial burden.
