What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have recently transferred to the University of the Sciences and I absolutely love it! All of the faculty members are extremely empathetic. It is easy to be in contact with any faculty member. There is so much to do off-campus as well since it is in Philadelphia. There are many clubs to get involved in so it is easy to get involved and find a group of people to fit in with. I very much recommend going here!

My overall opinion is that I love this school. It's a small school that is extremely driven in the Science field. Professors are always available and the support is unlike any other institution. It's easy to get involved and no student is ever left behind because we are highly inclusive.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

University of the Sciences is the perfect school for students who want to experience the city but in an environment where you can be one-on-one with students and teachers. They have state of the art facilities that make learning so much more interesting rather than just reading a textbook. What I love most about University of the Sciences is that they want you to be involved with the school, beyond academics, something that has always interested me is the research that professors conduct and what is amazing is that they want their students to be a part of it.

It is a very beautiful and inclusive campus. The staff and faculty are always there if there is a problem, and the academics are hard to beat. There are plenty of sports and extracurricular activities for everyone to try. The new residence hall is beautiful and well built.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

University of the Sciences is a fantastic school that helps students achieve their academic goal. Most people that come to this college know that they either want to go into the scientific field or want to become a health care professional. This school is located in a bigger city, but you can't even tell when you are on campus. It is a small, tight knit community. Everyone has a difficult course load, so we are all there for each other and want our peers to succeed. The professors are always accessible and the students are able to go to them with academic help at any time. The students and professors do create a good bond with each other because the classes are on the smaller side and the professors always make an effort to get to know their students. Overall, University of the Sciences is an amazing school with great opportunities.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

USciences is really a great school. If you are looking to study anything science related, it’s the place to be, especially with majors like pharmacy and physical therapy. Being that it is such a small and focused school, the academics are pretty tuff. That being said, everyone takes school seriously and is aware that to get to where you want to go, the rigorous curriculum is all worth it. Another perk of it being a small school is that relationships between students and professors and advisors are stronger, because there are less students.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

University of the Sciences is a good college. There are plenty of things to get involved in, on and off campus. Also, this school has very strong academic standards and a good graduation outcome when it comes to jobs. University of the Sciences is an all together great school when it comes to extra curricular activities and academics. There is a good balance between school and fun.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

From the minute I stepped on campus during my very first visit to The University Of The Sciences, I knew that this was the school for me. As I walked through the different facilities with my tour guide, I began to gain a sense of excitement. Not just any excitement, the excitement that leaves one with butterflies in their stomach, and I soon realized that it was an excitement to LEARN. Just within the first 30 minutes of the tour, it was almost as if I had a vision of the future, a vision of success, a vision of me changing the world for the better and making a difference in humanity, all because of the many different possibilities that I saw before me, at what was my soon to be new university! I knew that the University of The Sciences was the school for me. From my first day in class, the challenges, the atmosphere, the curriculum, all gave me a feeling of determination that I could soon live up to my dream of changing the world. There is no other school that I would rather be. The professors want to see the students succeed, and they make sure that when in class, we thoroughly understand everything we are being taught. Being a student here really leaves me optimistic, and there is no doubt in my mind that when I graduate, I will be more ready than I ever have been to make the world a better place.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am an occupational therapy student ho plans to graduate with my clinical doctor. I want to utilize this degree to help others live their life to the fullest and do what they want to do. I have nothing but good things to say about university of the sciences. I can honestly say, being a 4th year student (with two more years to go) that this school has prepared me professionally and clinically to be a successful and competent OT. The courses are not easy and sometimes students here can become very stressed, but we are all driven and motivated students who plan to become health care professionals. Our vigorous programs have taught us to support and help one another through this process and make sure we stay focused. This university is located in West Philadelphia in a nice small community. During the warmer days, you can take a quick walk to clark park (which is located in the middle of our campus) to participate in farmers markets and fun sales. We also have a few trolley stops right on campus that take you directly into center city in 7 minutes for under $3. As for the campus itself, it is a small campus only about 4 blocks in length. Everyone seems to know each other and as you walk through campus you can typically wave to a few familiar faces! I have made some life long friends here at university of the sciences and i would not trade my education or experience for anything. I do have to be honest when I say that Usciences does not provide your "typical" college experience. If you are looking for the school that always had parties and huge sports events- then Usciences is not for you. We have over 200 clubs and organizations as a community to get involved, but as a whole we are very program and education focused.
