There are a few computer labs in Feldman building, computers available to commuters in the commuter lounge, the library, and a set of computers and a printer in each of the dorms on campus. It is free to print in every building except for the library, which is cheaply priced at 3 cents per page, with the first page free. In the other labs, you simply have to provide your own paper.
The network itself is hit-or-miss on reliability. It's definitely slower when many people are using it, such as during class registration, but otherwise is average on speed.
There is wireless internet available all over campus.
A personal computer is highly recommended for doing work, but a personal printer is not necessary.

Health & Safety:
Public Safety is always out and about campus. There are emergency call buttons located all over campus. Texts and E-mails are sent to students and faculty when there is an emergency on or around campus. The Public Safety office always has at least one officer on duty 24/7

The college provides many services to help students with their major. The Biology program has a rigorous curriculum but the faculty offer lots of help. The career office is very informative with internship and job opportunities based on specific majors

If you go looking, it is not hard to find. Public Safety does a good job of keeping alcohol and drugs out of the dorms

Guys & Girls:
There are a few lookers, but nothing too exciting.

As for dorms- as a freshman or a transfer it can be a hit or miss- you can either get a roommate that you will love or one that you will hate hopefully you can get one you can tolerate. After that you can pick and choose who you would like to room with or live with and you can always change rooms if there is that much of a issue there are RA's you can talk to but do be aware some RA's just get too involved and are just too annoying. the dorms are decent and some are very spacious. South HAs carpeting and a kitchen.

The policy enforcement is in place to protect the students, but as in every college the freshman get there first kick away from home and try to look older and drink which causes many freshman to get caught. The security at DelVal is always looking to keep their students safe but happy. For those that are 21 and over you are aloud to drink beer or wine ( a certain amount can be in your room without it being illegal on campus) as long as no one in the room is underage. Besides that there are parties with many frats and sororities and clubs and organization which are off campus so everyone still does their own thing. just to keep it SAFE GO TO THE BARS AND HAVE A DD than you cant complain about the rules.

There are many apartment complexes in Doylestown, Chalfont and other surrounding areas. The off-campus housings are a short ride away from campus and stores.

they stop people from getting into a major they wanted by putting people in a program that will not help them at all.
College Sophomore 2013-08-14T17:01:28Z
mostly white people and they get all the scholarships. most of the blacks up to $1200 dollars for year and we have to go for loans most of the time because we are charged so much

It is mild here. There is never a lot of rain or snow. It is never intensely hot or frigidly cold.

The night life is really non-existent. Unless you are a football-playing bro, or a PEK jerk you can't really do much. There are a few bars, but it doesn't help the under-21 crowd. The best option is Philadelphia but then even the SEPTA trains stop running early so you are trapped in Philly. Transportation is hard to find.

I'm at Delaware Valley College, and I'm a Food Science major. The program started out as a smaller one, but my time here has shown me the growth that has been occurring. The program is now 40 odd students strong. The program is pretty direct in what needs to be taken; it is loosely based off of IFT standards. The workload is not intense. It's rather light. The facilities for the department are alright. I worked the summer cleaning, reorganizing, and purchasing equipment for the labs. The faculty is lackluster. The former department head was the poster child for the program, and he is now in the business department. The only professor left is a little incompetent. The internships and job opportunities kind of make the minor suffering worth it. Almost everyone has a job before they graduate, and the internships I have worked have been wonderful. All in all it's worth it.

Public transportation doesn't really exist around Delaware Valley College, it's not a big enough university to need it. The use of the college is convenient because its compact. The cost isn't outrageous compared to some today.
College Junior 2013-07-24T13:24:25Z
A good college to attend because the professors provide the students with well studied information. The college can be a little unorganized causing items to be lost or not recorded correctly.
College Freshman 2013-07-23T00:46:09Z
I received grants and scholarships but the cost is high, especially staying on campus so covering all of the cost was still a hassle.
College Senior 2013-07-20T19:01:12Z
there are many parking lots and there is ALWAYS a spot for your car even if you aren't close to your classes. but I would recommend a good 5 -10 minute walk before your class.
College Senior 2013-07-20T19:00:02Z
This school is what you make it. there are many clubs in philly that are 18+. for those that are 21+ there are bars in town and around campus. but besides that there are dances at the school and many club organization on campus hold different events. parties are created by the students themselves. so like I said it what you make it. if you don't like that kind of social life there's always karoke bingo and a lot of other great activities!
College Senior 2013-07-20T18:57:34Z
the shuttle bus to town is FREE and the train is average.
College Senior 2013-07-20T18:54:20Z
The campus is located in Doyelstown which is a nice town. there are many stores to shop out there is a starbucks. CLose to campus is a McDonalds, super market, cvs, wawa and more. ALso on campus the train stops right in the parking lot so you can take the train to phiily. so you can get the best of both worlds.
College Sophomore 2013-07-08T20:09:18Z
In town, about a mile away, there are plenty of options and variety both in taste and cost. There are also a few chain restaurants nearby, for example Apple Bee's.
College Sophomore 2013-07-08T20:07:28Z
The wireless network around campus can be slow pretty often. There are plenty of computer labs, and as long as you bring your own paper you can print for free everywhere except in the library.

Delaware Valley College offers millions of dollars in financial aid each year to many of its students, but I'd be lying if I said they handed it out for free! You have to meet and maintain GPA standards (3.0 is the highest, 2.5 is the lowest for certain scholarships). For example, the Presidential Scholarship winner needs to maintain a cumulative 3.0 GPA in order to keep the scholarship. DelVal also offers a large number of grants and loans to its students, and makes available other options to get loans, grants and scholarships through banks and other organizations. They know how tough it is to pay for school, so they give you plenty of paperwork and information about how to earn scholarships. They also have a great work-study program on campus. They provide you with jobs while residing on campus so you can pay back loans and pay your tuition during the semester so you don't have to pay all at once.
Because there are so many students applying for financial aid and loans, I would advise you to apply as early as possible and make sure your paperwork doesn't get lost in the fray, and keep up with regular phone calls or in-office appointments with the Bursar and Financial Aid Offices to find out what you need to do to get the money to pay for school.

some teachers in certain majors don't do their job correctly. they should give students more freedom in what classes rather than punishing them for not reaching their mark
Sorry, there are no reviews.
