"An average but excessively expensive University which is known more for its Basketball than its academics. It's a "ye ol test curve" type of grading system. It's in a very violent and dangerous area of Philadelphia. I would never recommend La Salle University in Philadelphia."

"Program is ran by one person who never reaches out or offers help so forget about any advising. If you want to write a thesis and do research go somewhere else. It seems like there is little to on funding for the psych program. The best part of this program was the opportunity to take MBA courses. The people running this program are rude and don't care about when you finish the program."

"La Salle was a great university to attend. The professors in my field were thoughtful and helped you work toward your goals. They were very responsive during office hours or by email. I found the classes to be challenging and interesting. I was a psychology major, but ultimately pursued a career as a PA. My psych background helps me everyday as treat patients. The school itself has a lovely campus, but admittedly it is not in the best area of Philadelphia. As long as you are mindful of your surroundings you should have no issues, and campus security is good if you ever feel unsafe."

"La Salle is smaller than other schools in Philadelphia. My favorite part of La Salle was the small class sizes and the accessibility to professors. Throughout my 4 years, I did not have a single professor that did not know my name and email. Every faculty member was always willing and happy to provide any help you need. Campus is in a rough area in North Philly. I certainly didn't travel off campus alone, however was comfortable walking on campus after dark. There are several security booths scattered across campus and many emergency call posts. Class sizes and the helpful, caring faculty are definitely the biggest pros of La Salle."

"LaSalle was the perfect school for me! It's not too big and you get to recognize everyone's face. LaSalle Education department is amazing and I felt fully prepared entering the Philadelphia School District immediately after graduation. I would absolutely recommend LaSalle to any aspiring educator!"

"It's was a great experience. It was a very service oriented school. It instilled a since of community in me. I was able to view myself in a global light through travel opportunities as LGU minor. There was always a place for me at La Salle I felt included but also connected to others through our multicultural organizations. My time a La Salle has instilled a passion in me to serve those that are less fortunate."

"La Salle University is an all-around great school. They are very encouraging and uphold a strong diversity. I am now in their graduate's program perusing my Master's in Information Technology Leadership. La Salle is great and I am also enjoying their graduate program as well."

"Nice personalized environment with faculty. Is good if you are excited to learn and want classes that are not too big. Give out some scholarships but base tuition is about average. Inconvenient location if you want to go out around Center City. Could offer better internship relationships with companies."

"I enjoyed the Communication Department at La Salle. I also ran Track. I think it helps to belong to an extra-curricular at this school, as most students were part of a sports team or fraternity/sorority. I thought La Salle did a good job at preparing me to get a career. I did feel that it was very much of a "suitcase" school - I would also pack up and head home on the weekends. It is a very small school, which is also something to take into consideration. If I had to do it over again, I would probably go elsewhere. But, I do recommend their Communication program."
