    It is a very small school, though mostly everyone knows everyone, there is not as many campus activities as a bigger campus school. There are ups and downs to USci!

    USP is a great social school. All the students get to know each other since its such a small school. USP is only 15 minutes away from center city, so there are many activities to engage yourself in to keep yourself busy. You never get bored at USP.

    For as small as the school is, there is a lot of diversity. We are right in the middle of University City. In Philadelphia, there is so much to do and on the campuses of other schools, there are so many people to meet. It can be hard to find something to do on campus besides studying. Everyone is always in the books. The campus was not set up for fun, but for hard work. If you willing to look, you can have a lot of fun here. I have enjoyed meeting so many new people.
