The thing that I brag most about when I tell my friends about my school is the beautiful campus. I know that a lot of colleges have enormous campuses with different activities for the students to get involved with. Alvernia is a private college, so the campus is not that big. Despite the size, there are still many activities for students to involve themselves in. I love to just sit outside and admire how beautiful the campus looks on a daily basis.

It is a school that is small enough that you don't get lost. Also, that the teachers know now your name and who you are; That doesn't make you a face and a number, it makes you a person.


How everyone is so friendly and everyone on campus knows each other. We are a great group of kids, having amazing athletes and the professors are amazing. Our school is like one giant family. Everyone is there for each other and care about everyone. If someone is having a bad day everyone makes that person feel better. There is not one day in the school year that I ever feel like my school choice was the worse thing ever.


My campus is extremely clean and well taken care of. The dorms are in very good condition and provide a good living space. I like the size of the school in relation to the amount of people that go there; it is not over- or under-whelming.


The small class sizes, the open space around campus, the ever-growing facilities that allow for more activities and living on and off campus, and how easy it can be to get through classes with the right professors.


Small campus with small class sizes which is geared to more of a 1-on-1 learning environment.
