Where do I start? There are many good things about PhilaU and many bad things.

First, I do like the smaller school feel rather than a large school that has 200 to a class. I like that you almost know everyone and if not know their face. I like the location the city and I do feel Physical Plant to a great job considering there limited resources

However, I feel there's no consistency with lecturers in grading and course work. There's far too much emphasis on BS class's that have nothing to do with your major. Some lecturers are really friendly and others can’t give you the time of day.

Also, there’s no unity between different departments so it takes for ever in a day to get something accomplished , which should only take a matter of 1 phone call instead of speaking to 10 different people and be referred back to the person you started with.

I feel the sign in policies are a JOKE in IP; we should be able to come and please as we like and shouldn’t have to sign our friends in and out! We aren’t in kindergarten anymore; this is supposed to be college. The McGinn guards are a JOKE and a complete waste of money. I know understand why we need them, all they do is create a nuisance more than anything.

I have said my piece, but as usual at this school it will fall of deaf ears!!!!!
