The local atmosphere is downtown Harrisburg. Many homeless people and low-lifes always lurk around the area.
College Sophomore 2013-12-11T21:56:09Z
There is no unique aspects of my major, Biology and Environmental Science. There are no activities and opportunities offered here, which makes people lose their inspiration within the major.
College Sophomore 2013-12-11T21:56:09Z
The professors work close to students because of the small class sizes. The workload is easy.The popular study areas is anything in a technology based major, which is where ALL of the opportunities are.
College Sophomore 2013-12-11T21:54:22Z
There isn't much campus strictness at all.
College Sophomore 2013-12-11T21:53:20Z
The university doesn't help students find off campus housing. However, living off campus is very cheap.
College Sophomore 2013-12-11T21:52:37Z
Financial aid was great and they take care of any issues with ease.
College Sophomore 2013-12-11T21:50:01Z
There are no facilities provided for students to hang out. This school things that using a couple chairs and tables is a student center/hub. They need to pay attention to creating activities for students so that people will stop transferring.
College Sophomore 2013-12-11T21:48:46Z
It's all just fast food places around Harrisburg. When you go to a higher quality restaurant, or even a specialty diet one, it's extremely expensive.
College Sophomore 2013-12-11T21:47:33Z
It's dangerous to go out at night, even with a group of people. The only activities at night are for people 21 and over.
College Sophomore 2013-12-11T21:46:37Z
The only good thing about the school is the small class size and apartment-style dorm rooms. If you're a technology major, you'll have opportunity. If you're a life sciences major, forget it.
The university doesn't provide quality activities for students, and the Harrisburg location is dangerous and boring. There's literally nothing to do besides study and sleep.
If you don't have a car, and can't afford a 700$ per semester charge for the parking garage, then there's no way to purchase groceries or do activities. The school doesn't have a cafeteria because the students have a full kitchen, however mice have been constantly found within the buildings.
The school provides a few clubs, but they barely sponsor them and have good quality activities.I've lost my inspiration for my major at this university because of the lack of opportunity and a college life experience,. I can't wait to transfer this semester.

There is no Greek life.
College Sophomore 2013-12-11T21:44:55Z
There's no restrictions, unless you get caught red-handed. In that case, you're asked to dispose of the drugs yourself.
College Sophomore 2013-12-11T21:43:51Z
There is no athletics at Harrisburg University of Science and Technology. The closest thing you'll get to any sport is the Athletic club, which barely plays sports. The school doesn't supply areas where anyone could play a sport, or the resources to do so.
College Sophomore 2013-12-11T21:41:58Z
There's one parking garage located in the building that costs 700$ a semester, and the price is rising. If you can't afford to park on campus, then it's up to you to find another parking garage off campus for expensive price as well.

Health & Safety:
There is no student health center. If you get sick or hurt, you have to find your own means of going to a doctor somewhere in Harrisburg. The city gets dangerous at night and there is barely any security that's seen on campus.
College Sophomore 2013-12-11T21:38:34Z
It's always windy and the city is dirty. The city is also unsafe as there are dangerous people lurking around at night. The city closes down at 8pm besides restaurants or bars, so you can always here drunk people getting into fights or making noise at night, any day of the week.
College Sophomore 2013-12-11T21:36:57Z
No campus dining available. You have to find means to driving to the grocery store way off campus, and buying your own food. It's very expensive.
College Sophomore 2013-12-11T21:36:00Z
The rooms are apartment style, however it doesn't promote a college atmosphere. Also, the rooms have full kitchens so many mice make their way in. There aren't any fun activities to do in housing, and the "common rooms" are almost nonexistent.
College Sophomore 2013-10-15T15:24:30Z
There's not much of a campus so there's barely anything to do. It's college, so of course there's parties, but they're not mass. A lot of the students here work at restaurants so they're too busy to have a social life. When there's time, we like to go out to watch movies or have movie nights or big dinners.
College Senior 2013-10-10T03:50:39Z
Downtown Harrisburg has museums, restaurants and nightclubs which promotes a very active nightlife.
College Senior 2013-10-10T03:48:37Z
There is no greek life at all on campus
College Senior 2013-10-10T03:47:32Z
The campus is very small and does not have food places of its own but it is very close, rather the building is attached to a shopping center that has a food court, bank and other professional services.
College Junior 2013-09-23T16:32:08Z
The campus housing is very new and supports all students, since the university resides in the city ther housing is two separate building that are directly across from the school to ensure that students make it to class on time. The housing is very spacious and provides great accomodation for each student. The building are all brand new and have had the best renovations for each student. The housing is very affordable for students and the school will be opening a third housing building in the next year to accomodate more students who wish to live on campus instead of commuting.

The offcampus dining here for Harrisburg University of Science and Tachnology is excellent. There is a street that is called "resturant row" because of how many diverse and creative resturants that reside on the street. Students have amazing choices for their off-campus dining. There is even a local resturant that is ran by students from the surrounding area and the students cook the food also. Along with the dining there are events throughout the year that students can take part in and go from resturant to resturant sampling the different cuisine.
College Junior 2013-09-23T15:58:36Z
Harrisburg is a small city and there really isnt too much that really goes on in the city as far as events go. But there are an amazing amount of dining choices and places to shop. The city does have great museums and attraction. The city does have a local baseball, soccer, and football game that are for minor league. Harrisburg is always having fundraiser for local charities such as breast cancer, autism, etc.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
