Philadelphia University - Comments and Student Experiences|
Overall I am very angry with financial aid, RESIDENCE LIFE, physical plant, food services, admissions, registrars office, student accounts, and safety and security.
I am pleased with my courses and the faculty. I feel I am being challanged and that I am learning a lot of information, both for my major and in general studies. Health Service is nice as well. I feel comfotable and well taken care of there. An overall warning to anyone who is thinking about going here... THE SCHOOL LIES!!! They will tell you anything that you want to hear, while you are applying. They love money and will not love you. Don't buy into all the propoganda they send you as a high school senior. They sent me many letters and made me feel like they would really care for me and it took a while for me to see that they didn't, but they really could not care any less for me. I feel for the price that I am paying and will be paying for many years to come, I should be getting a pleasant experience and not all this trouble. I feel as though I can't leave now, because of all the money I have put into this school. Our president gives himself raises as he sees fit!!! So you guess where our money goes. There is a huge housing shortage, but the school will not build more dorms or apartments. Instead they build useless things, like totem statues, fountains, trees, and a bigger student center. I feel that having some where to live is more important than having some where to lounge. I am, overall, not an angry person, but please believe me when I say that this school lies to you and will do anything, but be helpful, to get your money.
