We were on a college visit for my son and I have to say what a wonderful school. The staff and students were incredibly friendly and welcoming. The school offers great programs especially business and health sciences. They have a state of the art Bloomberg business lab and are building a rehab center of the PT program. The dorms are...

Plenty of new construction has taken place over the last few years making things beautiful in the "college" part of town. The Rose Garden is a great spot in the summer if you're looking for some peace & quiet to read a book. But travel in to downtown if you're looking for the hustle & bustle.

I've been to several functions throughout the campus and the grounds are beautiful, the buildings are all unique and well maintained. It is a Diamond within Scanton.

Earned my masters degree at the U of S. I enjoyed it in 1998 and the campus since then is absolutely incredible.

Perfect size campus. Not to big or small. It's quiet but has a life and the city is one block down the hill. It seems like it's always expanding. Great walking areas. Cool open space and all of my classes are a quick walk from my dorm. Living in Condron is almost like being in a hotel. The food at... More

It's a safe college. Of campus housing is always fun for obvious reasons, and the police are always out, not to bust parties or arrest people, but instead to ensure that everyone is 100% safe and aware of what they are doing. I go to Scranton and have seen the cops do nothing but help people. I have never seen... More

Wonderful tour, You see all the housing rooms as well as the eating areas. The grounds are kept very nice. We were worried that it would be a city environment, but it is not. It is in Scranton, but Scranton is more like a small town than a city. This is a nice college in a beautiful setting with at... More
