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

This school has a lot to offer. It is a nice mix of new and old. Its education is excellent in the Jesuit tradition but certainly not limited to Catholics, or Christians. The students, while sometimes "being students" (as most any college) are also encouraged by various outreaches in services and similar programs to be involved in local activities. The... More

I work at the University of Scranton. The services and education provided to students is outstanding. Every student is considered special and receives much help and nurturing to succeed. Students are all encouraged to room on campus so each student gets to know as many other students as possible.

Beautiful school, excellent staff, great variety of classes. This is an excellent school, especially if you are looking to get into Medical School after. Lots of up to date dorms. A relatively pricey school but a good investment.
