Brianna - 10/26/2020

Harcum College is a nice experience for people that looking for the opportunity of going to college but nervous about a 4 year. Harcum College is the perfect @ year school to get a feel of college to determine if college is for you or not. The classes are nice size not to large, the people and the neighborhood is friendly, and the professors know who their students are so when you need help easy access.

TaNiya - 06/09/2020

The school is ok...simply just wasn't for me. The food is terrible but the staff is funny and nice, the dorms are ok if you get put in Klein. The professors are really nice and helpful, the library staff was amazing I enjoyed my time greatly there. They don't have much in the area it's very boring, and a lot of the students aren't motivated it reminded me of freshman year in highschool. It's better suited as a commuting school.

Jodee - 05/28/2020

It is a decent school, but there is a lot that they do not tell you in advance. They also, do not really help students when it comes to financial issues and needing help figuring out how to pay. When in the veterinary program they do not tell you ahead of time that the externship is not covered by financial aid and that you have to pay all out of pocket for it. Looking more into the college beforehand is very important if they also told people before they entered the school about the expenses it would be more helpful when planning.

Paige - 08/22/2019

I am a commuter, starting my second year at Harcum College. I have absolutely loved my experience so far here at Harcum. The teachers really care about their students and do everything they can to help you succeed. The class sizes are small so its easier to have a relationship with your teacher and fellow classmates. Harcum has great tutoring services that are free! I love that Harcum always has some kind of event or meeting going on every week for the students to participate in.

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    As I prepare to graduate high school and pursue my goals on life I look at life as it is now and how it was then. If I could go back I would have looked at college different. Because I love the game of basketball, and at one time in my life it was my life, till the day I shatterd my tibia, forcing me to miss the entir season. I learaed alot from this experience,because prior to that basketball was my way out, but I had to find other things to do in its place, it give me time to think about my future. I realizes that I loved the sport, and I want to continue playing through college and as far as it will take me, however I also realized that at any time that could end. And I need to have a acollage deree to help me get a good job and be successful in life. This experience showed me the importance of life,school and basketball. I would just tell myself to be more forc on what u want out of life.
