Philadelphia University Reviews
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.
