Student at This School - Grad Year 2014

Overall Rating

I think that Alvernia is an over all good school, but I believe they can improve in a few ways. As far as prospective students, if you're into a private, catholic education, then it's a good school for u. I like that there's a variety of classes, you're allowed to take electives and the professors are very understanding.


Student at This School - Grad Year 2015

Overall Rating

I am an adult student continuing my education and everyone in the continuing education office have been very supportive and encouraging. The professors that I had have been very understanding of the "adult" student and extremely encouraging. I like the fact that the classes at night fit into my life schedule. I've been doing very well at my studies and that is my memorable experience, it's been such a long time since I've been in college and I was very intimidated; but the stuff and students at Alvernia have put me at ease.
