Overall Rating

The school is an overall great place to be. It's set in a beautiful area with many things accessible by walking or even a 5 minute drive; from shopping to resturants to bars to churches. You don't even need to drive into Philly itself to have fun. I enjoyed partaking of the many Volunteer programs the school had to offer and everyone involved was extremelly friendly and always helpful. The professors were open to hearing new ideas and the workload was average. I graduated with 2 majors and a minor, so I had a lot of work...but the average one major was manageable.
