"Wanna do little work, cheat your way through and be hassled endlessly by an administration that sees you only as income? Choose HFU...Guaranteed to pass the NCLX in three tries or less. Go elsewhere. Every student is a exception to the rules. Adjunct faculty change weekly. Professors will give you the answers to your exams...What's not great at HFU?"

"The program was well designed and worked for a working adult. Instructors genuinely care about students and I not only learned the theories I needed to know, but also taught me important life lessons I now use every day."

"I attended Holy Family University in Philadelphia, PA from 2010-2014 and achieved my BSN with a psychology minor. This nursing program is well known for being challenging but it was beneficial because I felt more prepared for a future job. As long as you put the time in and study you will do well, this is not a program where you can get by without opening a textbook. I was proud to be a student of Holy Family during my clinical rotations due to the good reputation our students have at these clinical sites. The only negative thing I have to report is my own personal experience with an academic advisor, I felt as though she could have been more helpful when it came to registering for HESI exams and also suggesting how I should be preparing for boards as well as my future career."

"Holy Family University was a great choice for both myself and my husband. The prices were affordable, financial aid was very helpful in figuring everything out from the beginning. We never had any issues getting transcripts, proof or payment or any documents needs from them. The food on campus was good, only students could fob through the front doors of buildings insuring safety and security. The advisors were always helpful and supportive and best of all the teachers were amazing. They made everything tie to real life and make sense."

"College was a pleasant experience. I was able to bond with others in my field of study who had similar goals. After I graduated, I was able to get a job in my field doing what I love and maintaining quality friendships."

"Amazing program! The professors were very helpful and knew their info. The program is hard, but what nursing school is not. A lot of people did drop out, but that happens in every nursing program. The program prepared me for the NCLEX and real life. The tuition is expensive, but I think it was worth it."

"The teachers were great and the campus is very accessible. A lot of the work at the time seemed very worthwhile, but education is always changing and I felt some of the material was outdated."

"My graduate program is able to help me further my career and goals for becoming a school counselor. The classes are just the right size to get the discussions and feedback from both professors and other students. It is difficult to pick which classes to take when it comes to scheduling, but there are so many support systems and advisers than you can talk to and will help you with figuring out the best options for your schedule."

"The pros of this program is that it puts a strong emphasis on case studies. Although students can quickly forget definitions learned in a text book, case studies allow student to apply and learn from experience. The cons of this program is that it is not well known yet."

"The MS program in Counseling at Holy Family University is fabulous and offers many opportunities for students. There are 5 different concentrations to customize your degree and better prepare you for your future. A practicum and intership are required to enhance your education and gain practical experience in your chosen field prior to graduation. The faculty and staff is very caring and supportive to all students; the classes are offered conveniently in the evening hours to accomodate those who are working full time. In my opinion, there are no cons to this program!!"
