Slippery Rock University is commonly mislabeled as a “party school,” which leads many to assume that there is no prestige here. Sure, SRU is no Harvard or Yale, but there is a lot of quality that comes with the education that each student receives—and you don’t have to pay a million dollars in student loans to get it. Slippery Rock is well known for several academic programs, including education and physical therapy. However, there are a few weak and useless programs comparable to the art of underwater basket weaving. At Slippery Rock University, it is not uncommon to have lunch with your professors or to have a friendly chat about politics and literature during their office hours. Students are not just a number here. Most professors know students by name and greet them accordingly, while trudging through the snowy quad. Class sizes are kept small and taught by real professors, never by TAs, enforcing a bridge between professor and student. There are professors here from all over the world and most are well-established in their fields. Your textbook may even be authored by their very hand.
There are a few professors who are eccentric and unfocused, which leads to haphazard classroom direction and dismay. Across the board, veteran SRU students advise that you get to know your professor before you walk into his or her classroom. Do your research, ask around, and explore if you are compatible with his or her teaching style. This will ensure that your writing professor is not just a cat lady with skills solely in magnetic poetry.
