  • The University of Scranton

    The Huffington Post has dubbed the University of Scranton the the 6th friendliest school in the nation. While Scranton maintains a friendly attitude, it’s also academically aggressive and keen on preserving its religious traditions. The University of Scranton is a small Jesuit school (one of the top ranked in the North, according to US News & World Report) and offers 80 areas of study at the undergraduate and graduate levels. All students are required to take courses in public speaking, computer literacy, and theology, to establish a well-rounded education while and hold true to the school’s Catholic roots.

     

    Moving into Your First Apartment

    One of the greatest aspects about college life that makes it so different from life before it is living on your own, whether it’s in the dorms or in an off-campus apartment. While Scranton offers campus housing and guarantees it to all students, almost half of the school chooses to live off-campus. Around Scranton, you’ll find a variety of apartment homes ranging from one- to three- bedrooms. Don’t let that limit you to only having two roomies. Splitting a room is half bad, especially when you are paying for half the price tag. If you’re having a little anxiety with apartment hunting, pause. Brew yourself a cup of chamomile and read our guides to help you throughout your search process.

    Beyond “The Office”

    As you may know, Scranton is the setting for the hit NBC comedy, “The Office.” However, there’s way more to do here than watch Jim and Pam’s romance unfold. For an old-fashioned American bite, check out Coney Island Lunch, where the hot dogs receive accolades year after year…since 1923. Or, if you’re looking for a bigger adventure, take advantage of Scranton’s winter cold and visit the Pocono Mountains for a little skiing and snowboarding away from campus.
