The science building is breathtaking, as is theEducation
The science building is breathtaking, as is the new OT building, so if you are a science major I would recommend this school. The business building is also beautiful (though not as new.) On the other hand, I suggest RUNNING AWAY if you are pursuing a degree in education. Don't walk, run. Run fast and don't look back. Find another college. Really. McGurrin (the education building) is pathetic (old, rundown, off-campus and inconvenient, many of the classrooms do not have a single window.) Actually, McGurrin is as run down as your future place of employment (a public school.) Additionally the education professors, though nice, are unqualified to teach future teachers. Only Dr Cullen has actually been an elementary school teacher. I wasted my time and money attending this school. I should have transferred. I do not recommend the University of Scranton.

Scranton is NOT truthful on the tour or acceptance student day. Professors are not sincere or approachable.

Question
The winters are brutal, the city is dangerous,Quite BrightNursing
The winters are brutal, the city is dangerous, and there's really nothing to do in NEPA except drink until you blackout which is the main social activity of the student body here. The campus is small and cliques form fast. If you are artsy, progressive, or different from the norm in any way, you are shunned. There is no culture here and it's generally just a depressing place to go to college. For the amount of money you spend to go here, it is simply not worth it. I transferred halfway through sophomore year and was much happier elsewhere.
