This serious Jesuit university has a very pretty campus. If you're visiting Scranton (say, for the famous train museum) and want to take a short walk, you'll probably enjoy strolling through the green spaces of the university.

My son is currently attending the University. He is very happy there. The campus is beautiful, meticulously maintained and very modern. There is a feeling of enthusiasm and caring throughout the campus. The school has been ranked highly by several notable publications. This area is fortunate to have such a good school so close by.

I attended the University of Scranton in the early 60's, graduating in 1965. Although my high school was very demanding, the Jesuits were even more so. But that was just my view as I was attending. In fact, as I went through my career, their demanding practices became increasingly helpful to me in my military and civilian career with the... More

My daughter graduated from the University of Scranton and received an excellent education. The campus is constantly growing and offers diverse programs. However, my review is about the Royal Theater at the university. My husband and I have been to see quite a few plays there. If you should be in town when there is a production going on, it's...

We visited the University of Scranton with my daughter who is interested in their direct entry BS/MS Occupational Therapy program. Beautiful campus with great class sizes, beautiful facilities, friendly students and great meal options. We left very impressed and our daughter is strongly considering attending there! We enjoyed the admission session, campus tour and individual meetings with OT program staff.

Beautiful Campus. The tour guides were friendly and very very knowledgeable. The buildings reminded me of something out of Harry potter! If you are considering this college please not that the surrounding area is not the best. in fact it was completely different than the video made it look. I highly recommend an open house tour and perhaps another when... More

Both of my children went here and enjoyed their college years. They have some great staff employed in the campus offices. a little pricey- but most private colleges are. The new building for PT and OT is amazing.

We were on a college visit for my son and I have to say what a wonderful school. The staff and students were incredibly friendly and welcoming. The school offers great programs especially business and health sciences. They have a state of the art Bloomberg business lab and are building a rehab center of the PT program. The dorms are...
