"I found myself frustrated with the amount of money that the institution puts into getting students to enroll, but very little into keeping students enroll. Many people transferred after freshman year. I also didnt find many of the professor inspiring, and didn't feel too prepared for the workforce."

"It was a private school and very over priced. I don't believe you can put a price on education, but I believe the quality of education could have been received at another, much less expensive, school. Additionally the scholarships given were very minimal."

"PhilaU was a great school. Small classrooms, beautiful campus, great professors. Only thing I wished for was a greater school community cohesiveness, but since it is a relatively small, private school, I understand the lack."

"I loved everything about it. The food was great. The teachers were great and made you think. The campus was beautiful and kept very clean. The architecture building needed upgraded though but I know that comes with time."

"The architectural education was what you made of it. Several of the staff were absolutely wonderful, however the college is far over priced. They are very stingy with scholarships, and there seemed to be quite a bit of evidence that the tuition check was their number one goal and there was not a lot of appreciation for the actual student body. We had to fight (and lost) to have facilities open longer, and more resources. A plotter was donated to the architecture lab, which was desperately needed, and they refused. I enjoyed my time there, but in hindsight, there are plenty of great schools that could offer much more for much less."

"My graduate program especially for Textile Design, it is covering the art design part and industrial part. So we can get a comprehensive knowledge of textile design."

"While this program is new, I absolutely love my program. Every professor is well versed in the field of counseling, especially in trauma, and will go out of their way to make sure you're where you need to be and that your placements (for practicum and internship) are going well."

"Philadelphia University is a perfect school for any design major. Their design programs are challenging and require a lot of work and participation in extracurricular activities, but at the same promising that after completing the program one will find it's place in a professional world of the design. The campus is one of the most beautiful campuses I have ever seen; located not far from the center city, with its beautiful landscape, it creates an illusion that you actually are nowhere near the city. Professors are knowledgeable and the university keeps up with a current technology, and the career center is always available to assist and very helpful. The cost of education is on a high side; maybe not as high as some other universities in the area, but high enough to make one worry about how to make it through the time of paying for tuition. In overall, Philadelphia University is a wonderful place to be. It encourages creativity, provides excellent education, and it's beautiful and safe campus is a joy to go to. The employment rate is very high for PhilaU graduates which is what makes the high cost more acceptable considering that the education earned here will most likely land you a desirable job."

"The Strategic Design MBA program is exceptional, timely and rare. Other MBA programs seem a bit too conservative and dated in the 21st century. There is mounting evidence that many universities without this approach are scrambling to pivot and develop similar innovative programs since the skills learned here are listed among the most desirable for business leaders in just about every industry. Additionally the executive format makes it idea for 1) working adults and 2) for students who can manage to travel from other states to attend bi-weekly classes. This is worth serious examination for any student interested in repackaging and updating training for this new and evolving business climate. Take time. Examine this. It's a terrific program!"

"Philadelphia University is great. I am enrolled in the Innovation MBA which is different from any other MBA I have seen out there. It really provides hands on experiences with the concept of 'design thinking' in every class."

"Philadelphia University offers the best Global Fashion Enterprise program across the United States. It is a well known program, accredited, and the only graduate school program for fashion students. This school networks with some of the top business meets fashion industry leaders and I am extremely proud to be apart of such a prestigious school. I know that once I graduate here it will not be hard to find a job in my field. I just wish I had the funds to support my dreams here."

"The program is very much what I expected it to be and forces me to think of and apply my courses to real world experiences. The cost of attending is a little bit more than I expected and it would be helpful to have more assistance for non-traditional students"
