1 College Freshman

Greek Life: We don't have greek life

1 College Freshman

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.

3 College Freshman

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.

3 College Freshman

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.

3 College Freshman

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.

4 College Freshman

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.

3 College Freshman

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.

1 College Freshman

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.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: People are people. Mostly from NY and NJ

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: You really will be challenged to grow as an entire person.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Most professors are good people , they are not all great teachers. But there are many great teachers.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I think it depends on your field.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I generally feel very safe on campus.

2 College Freshman

Athletics: This is definitely not a sports school , we are D3, and its not a very vibrant part of campus life.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Some students go off campus to save money ,and to party.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are a couple nice spots, there isnt any bustling city night life, but this certainly isnt a major city.

3 College Freshman

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....

3 College Freshman

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.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Alot of days its pretty good, but some days there is nothing particularly apetizing on the third floor dining hall.( but that depends on your tastes). The first floor has a few fast food chains ,but it gets old after a while. I wish there were more options on campus, but its a small school , so I suppose the number of options is proportional to the size.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The housing lottery is kind of like the hunger games , but the dorms are pretty spacious. The communal bathrooms can get gross a times, but I think that's to be expected of any communal living situation.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I dont know much, but I prefer on campus housing

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I don't go off campus to dine often but when I do, its nice.

5 College Freshman

Administration: For the most part, they are here to help you. I see some of them as my friend.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Overall my friends here have had a decent time with the financial aid. Scholarships are very helpful.
