If I could, I would tell every prospective student of Philadelphia University (formerly known as Philadelphia College of Textiles and Science) to avoid this school like the plague. I would not go here another day if they paid me. It is not worth the money, and I feel like my money goes into the president's lawn, not my education. This school is run like a business and is made to suck money out of your pockets for any and all reasons.

Most of the residence halls are falling apart and have no air conditioning. There are health hazards left and right. The school doesn't care that this 'serial sexual harasser' calls female students in the dorms and says explicit things (and has been for years without contest). My dorm room last year had cockroaches. This year there are squirrels in the ceiling of my building which pee on the tiles.

For spending over $20,000 in TUITION ALONE per year to go here, I am surprised anyone ever comes here. The freshmen retention rate is god awful because of how terrible this university is.

Please, for your own sake, steer clear. Spend your money somewhere else. Do not let the pretty campus and the embellished lies told to you during a tour influence your decision to come here. The only reason anyone should ever come here is if they are majoring in some kind of Design, especially fashion, and are willing to put up with four years of absolute misery and apathy from the departments.
