At California University of P.A. you will come across many professors that push you to not only learn but understand what you are learning and apply it in your everyday life. Cal U professors are among the best I have ever come across and seem to truly care about their students and there individual success.

    Cal U is a college I would not ragamend to my worst enemy. The faculty is is uneducated and don't know what there doing. I had multiple plroblems with the financial aid office. They do not tell you any important information until the day before or a day after. They do not claim responsibility for any of their wrongdoings. The Rush caffateria is the most harible food I have ever tasted in my life. There are multiple sanitation issues that need addressing. The staff is very rude and ignorant. They don't want to help you with anything. The staff talks down to the students as if we are children. I'm not paying 20,000$ a year to be belittled. The staff isn't knowledgeable with their information. I was almost kicked out because they didn't give me information on my student loans and therefor I was past my deadline multiple times.

    My time at Cal U was a complete waste of time and money. I am truly disappointed in the lack of response I have received from Dr. Hummell, my advisor, and others within the university. After several weeks of instruction, I had received absolutely ZERO feedback on ANY grade in either class I was taking. Grades were posted weeks after assignments were due to be submitted, and no feedback was provided. Further, I was assigned Wikipedia as a reading assignment. I understand that Wikipedia can be a great tool in beginning research to understand the overarching themes of a topic, however when paying over 3,000 dollars to take two courses, I would expect a higher level of rigor. I wouldn't recommend this university to anyone. My experience was deplorable.

    CALU is a great sized campus. There is always something to do, you just have to have an open mind. Very diverse, doesn't seem like it on campus all the time but you meet so many people with different cultures.

    California University of Pennsylvania is a university where everyone belongs. It is a great place and community to get a quality education for a reasonable price. Also, the school and staff prepares you for the competitive job market that every student is soon to face after graduation.

    To me, it feels like the teachers here really do care, and if you feel you need help from a teacher then they are more than willing to try and help you. The school also tries to help students in their goals with various ideas, such as classes to get you used to the school your first year, faculty advisers to help you decide what classes to schedule, and the Four Year Grad program to help students graduate in four years. Class sizes seem decent to me, with only a very few entry level classes having around 80 students in the class.
