An SRU degree is only worth your time,Quite BrightAccounting
An SRU degree is only worth your time, effort, and money if you're a safety management, exercise/health science, or education major. If you are planning to major in accounting, or any other major in the school of business, do not attend this school. Opportunities are virtually non-existent and the quality of the accounting curriculum is extremely poor. It is very affordable, but you get what you pay for.

Slippery Rock University isBrightOther
Slippery Rock University is a fantastic school. Even though it's not the smallest campus, it feels like it. Everyone is involved and friendly. It is best for its health programs: Exercise Science, physical therapy, therapeutic recreation, public health, etc.

Hello, I'm from the EasternBrightCommunications
Hello, I'm from the Eastern side of the state. Going to Slipery Rock was a huge adjustment for me. Although the school is on the small end, theres always plenty of things to do! Once a week the 'Happy Bus' will take students to the Grove City Outlets where you can spend some time shopping with your friends, or going out to eat. The surrounding area is mostly a small town with a bunch of cute little shops and bars, however a little outside of town, there are many state parks where students often go for an adventure or a quiet place to study. Also the arch (gym) holds many different kinds of events ontop of all the regular activities you can do there i.e running on the track, zumba, spinning classes, rock climbing, weight lifting, swimming, etc. Even better, there are plenty of positive greek life organizations! Greek life may not be for everybody, but its a great way to meet a bunch of friends who support you, get community service hours, requlate your grades, and always know where the best parties are! I would recommend SRU to anybody!
