What is your overall opinion of this school?

Alvernia is a great university that has many opportunities for students to pursue different majors. However, the sciences are a main focus at the school and the other programs seem to fall off the wayside. All of the professors are very nice and approachable, but it seems as though the courses that are in the sciences, such as nursing and occupational therapy, are the ones that have the most dedicated and challenging professors. The campus itself is beautiful and the sense of community is strong. The food is pretty good for college food, and the resources for the students are also good. There are many things in the surrounding area, but there are also many activities and clubs for students to get involved in. The Office of Student Activities always has something fun going on and sports are always an option too. The athletics are not the greatest at Alvernia, but they are growing in popularity and competitiveness each year. I have heard that the coaching staff on some of the teams are not great, but that the student-athletes themselves are dedicated. Overall, Alvernia University has many options for students to succeed in college and in their lives in general. The school is very science-based, so those programs are amazing. Everything else, as far as majors go, are options but are not as strong as they might be somewhere else.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion of Alvernia University is that it is a beautiful place that has great food, amazing professors, and gives a comfy feeling to relax, even when you're in class. School is very stressful but at the end of the day, the campus has a wide variety of things to do, see and experience. I love this school more than anything and I am proud to be a Wolf!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's not awful and its not amazing. There are, like every college, professor you should avoid and amazing professors. The food is rarely good but they have courtside and that food is amazing. Housing is okay. freshman buildings are a solid 6 outta 10 but upper class buildings are better.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think Alvernia University is a great college to attend. It is a small private school who focuses on the students. Classes are small and professors are always willing to help. The school is very "healthcare major based", meaning a lot of the students are nursing, OT, AT, etc. majors.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I enjoy Alvernia due to the small class sizes and the one on one time I am actually able to get with professors. My only complaint is that being a commuter I do not get notified for on campus activities and feel very left out of a lot of the activities and miss out on doing fun stuff with my friends who live on campus

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Alvernia University was the only college I applied to because I knew that it was the college i wanted to attend. Its campus is absolutely gorgeous, and it has really good transportation options. It is big enough that there are many different majors to choose from and all the classes are big enough, but its small enough that you can walk across campus in under 15 minutes. I love this college.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Alvernia University because we're like a family here. It's safe, comfortable, and everyone here wants to help. I never feel like I have nothing to do, and although classes are challenging professors or tutors are always there to help. Alvernias goal is to help their students succeed, not fail.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

When looking for an institution that would offer me a credible and affordable MBA program, my first thought was to seek out Alvernia University. The application process and communication from my adviser were effortless. Alvernia is well known among businesses locally and I feel really comfortable knowing my decision was the right one.
