The school itself is ok besides the fact that even though it's a "technology" the wifi sucks and the tech here glitches A LOT. The housing they have is 2 apartment buildings the school doesn't even own, and those suck. The A/C is always freezing and clonking out, I know its normal to have scuff marks on the walls but the floor is missing pieces, there is a mouse problem, the trash smell is so overwhelming you smell it on the 6th floor of the other side of the building. The appliances ,breakdown on you. In my opinion go to another school, I only came here because they gave me a scholarship but I totally regret it, rather be in bedt than come here.
It is a growing school that needs much improvement. It is increasing over the years which is great, however, school is very small and should be expanded in some way, as well as housing. There also isn't any sports which is unfortunate. I also believe there should be a meal plan as well.
Before attending this school ask yourself, do I really want to be away from home and into the middle of a busy city? I wish I would've thought of that before attending Harrisburg University. I was interested in the campus and housing, each has its pros and cons. However, the atmosphere outside of school (and housing) is quite troublesome. Next time you visit this school, watch the surroundings and notice that the streets are always empty. It is for a reason.
The campus is full of opportunity ranging from engineering (Actually building your own designs with support from your own hard earned money or the support of the schools financial aid for people in need and willing to sign the contract) to various science programs (As the school also has a variety and numerous labs for biologists, chemists, etc). The community is very kind and full of their own version of an actively and lively life with the city being the community and the school being less of a campus and more of a home or building within that city (It's a skyscraper which helps too). The school doesnt really have nearby grocery stores or places other then restaurants to get food which can be a problem as you also have to pay for parking and will most likely have to travel a fair distance to get access to groceries if you dont get it delivered to you.

Well I would tell myself that it wasn't a smart idea to move out so early. Basically as soon as I graduated I moved out and now I'm back living with my parents and commuting. I honestly think I made the right decision in the school I picked. I'm doing well in my classes and the teachers are very helpful and encourage the students to speak up in class and ask questions whenever we don't understand something. I like that they are also devoted to smaller classrooms so we are able to learn better.
It is a practically focused yet academic institution.
The student body is very diverse. They try to pull people in from every background possible. The cool thing is most students interact with each other and even though there are cliques, the school is so diverse it's impossible not to interact with someone outside of your comfort zone while in class.
Most of the students are positive and it is definitely a left-leaning campus.
The professors at HU are nothing short of awesome. They are incredibly educated and actually take the time to get to know you. It's quite an advantage over most schools. Not to mention most have hands-on and real world experience. It creates a very unique learning environment that is extremely valuable.
Being a brand new University, there really isn't much student life. The University promotes "The City Is Our Campus" which is great and all - but they really need to work on building a solid framework for campus life including dorms and social clubs.
The student life consists of mostly activities at the International House located a block away. They do have some pretty cool things going on.
The best thing about HU is the preparation for a real-world career and the internship opportunities. The school is great with giving you the tools necessary to compete in the job market.
The "campus" is just a building on Market street in downtown Harrisburg. It would be nice if there was an actual spread-out campus.
The best thing would have to be the campus is brand new. All the classrooms are very high tech and they are smaller classes which helps.
The only thing I really don't like about my campus is that there is not much of an oppurtunity to live on campus. Since the school is located in downtown Harrisburg we just have a building, the apartments are about half a block away and very expensive. If they were more affordable I would most likely live there.
