The University of Scranton is not diverse, most students have intrest in partying, drinking and drugs. It is also very cliquey here. The school is good for students interested in occupational therapy, nursing, and pre professional studies. It is also very exspensive here even with financial aid. Wifi services barely function correctly. Counseling services here are not as supportive as they should be. I was assaulted and didn't receive proper assistance. There also isn't anything to do off campus. Students often get robbed and there are also a number of burglaries that occur in off campus housing. Class sizes are small and most students are friendly. I would not recommend the college for students who are not party animals, and are from the minority group, or have low income. I honestly feel that for the college to cost almost 60k there would be better services for students.

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!

This Jesuit Univeristy has a place for everyone. I do not come from a specifically religious background, but that does not affect my experience at Scranton. The students here are some of the friendliest in the country. It may partially be due to the fact that our food is ranked nationally. Scranton has a noticeably warmer community, even though it can get pretty cold.
