I love Holy family University. I really feel safe and its a good place to learn and realy express myself.
I'm a transfer student this semester and even though I've only been here a week, I love it! When I was first applying for schools I didn't even consider this university because it was not the kind of school I was looking for. However, when transferring I gave it a shot and one of the professors sold me on it. He was so welcoming and willing to help, as are all of my current professors. I've already quickly made friends and everyone is super friendly. The class sizes are very small, usually no more than 20 people, which is perfect for my major since biology requires one on one attention. I have yet to have any complaints about this school, and I think anyone could get something great out of their experience here.
Holy Family University is a small, Catholic university. Everyone knows each other, which creates a friendly atmosphere for learning. Although the campus is very small, there are still plenty of opportunities to make friends. The professors there are always accessible and accommodate to your educational needs.
Holy Family Univeristy is a wonderful university with a beautiful campus. It might be small but that's what makes it wonderful. Because of the size you get to meet more people and are able to participate more in campus activities. I cant wait to make more exciting memories.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Holy Family University is 68%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
Attend school earlier, and save for when it does come time to pay. School is horribly expensive today. It is ashame that students can not pursue education free of the burden of financial hardship. My only adivce to myself would have been to begin saving in order to alleviate the struggles of financial hardship.
Their isn't anything yet that I wish I had known, when I went to academic advising to get my classes they were pretty straight forward as to what to expect there.
As a student currently attending Holy Family University, the teacher to student ratio and compasion is the best thing about this school. As a incoming freshman having teachers that actually cared whether I did good or bad, really motivated me to push harder as a student within the classroom and with life on campus. The class sizes are smaller and very interactive, one would not have to worry about teachers never knowing who they are because the teachers take the time out to get to know the students and form a relationship.
I enjoy the personal attention to detail that is expereinced at holy familly. It is wonderful to be able to speak to persons on a phone, rather then a computer or automated directory.
The most frustrating thing about Holy Family University is their grading system.
All have a desire to learn more than the day before.
There is not really anything that I would consider the "worst thing". It is all small things such as parking and sometimes it is freezing in the cafeteria. I honestly would not consider anything to be absolutely horrible. I enjoy my time at my school. Nothing is really all that bad there.
Anyone who wants to go to a great university should attend this school. The class sizes are small, so you get a lot of attention from teachers. If you need help there are many people willing to give of themselves to lend you a hand. The school just has a real cozy feel to it that you will not get with larger universities. So anyone that desires a great experience should go to Holy Family University.
Dedicated to helping the student succeed.
If you are family oriented, and are looking forward to making new friends from diverse cultures this is the place for you. Many career opportunities also; very professional staff.
I chose Holy Family because I want to be a nurse and in the Philadelphia area it is known to be one of the best schools. As I stated before there is an excellent state of the art facility and they offer a diverse clinical curriculum.
What makes my school unique compared to the other schools that I have considered, is the fact that the class sizes here for many subjects are very small. For example, in my biology class this semester, there are only seven students. Since biology is my major, this gives me a great opportunity to get all of the individual attention that I need in order to succeed and really understand this subject.
