Philadelphia University - Comments and Student Experiences|
As for advice, use the tutoring staff. They're good people and are a lot of help. Like my calc teacher speaks so-so english and always stands right in front of what he's writing. So all I have to do is walk into this room at 12ish and write my name on a paper to show that the tutor lady is getting people.All in all, even though the Design class is really really tough they do teach you a lot about art. Like they'll find a mistake and say its like that for the purpose of the design. You then have to figure out what a good excuse is for that. Not an excuse as in the knife slipped and I cut the board to far, but a very creative excuse that I can't think of right now.
he campus is so-so. There is major construction going on near Common Thread. There's also a major road that separates the campus, no big deal though. I enjoy going to the Student Center to play pool, Search Hall to work on my assignments, and the Library for quiet study (and magazine reading) time.
The campus is far from center city. You must take a bus or train to get downtown. The best way to find a friend who has a car. Public transportation is rather unreliable and expensive.
The food is okay. There is nothing to rant or rave about it. I prefer a cafeteria that has a new menu each week than other schools that has franchises like Taco Bell.
As for the students, a vast majority are not bright. They are not very knowledgeable about current issues and only concern about their group of friends, homework, iPods. No one cares about anything that is going on in the world. Some girls are rather stuck-up, superficial and spoiled here. You know, the one's with the designer purses?
The Ram Van is a hassle. It should be convenient but they often miss stops and takes about 30 minutes for the shuttle to reach to SLH.
This school is renowned for their design and textile programs. So if you are thinking about major in design, come here. For business and other majors, it is so-so. This is why I am transferring out. There are thousands of better colleges for business out there.Overall, I would not recommend Philadelphia University. The faculty is great, but the type of students are poor. The campus and cafeteria food is okay. The coursework can be too much at times, depending on the professor. Get used to staying on campus, because everything is a far reach from here.
