Academics

Neumann College, a small Catholic school outside of Philadelphia, specializes in providing undergraduates with "a personalized educational atmosphere based on Christian beliefs and moral values." The curriculum "emphasizes respect for individuals, concern for the environment, and social responsibility." Students praise "the service-learning that is stressed because this is a Franciscan school." As a result, "the volunteer opportunities and events held on this campus are remarkable." So, too, are academic offerings in nursing, education, communications, and criminal justice, as well as "one of the best" sports management programs in the region. No matter what you study here, you're sure to find "every professor and administrator in the Neumann College community is so friendly and very approachable." In particular, Neumann "is great for students who do not want huge lecture classes" that might be more common at bigger schools. Professors "go the extra mile to help in any way," and "the Academic Resource Center offers free tutoring in all subjects."

Student Body

Most of Neumann's population-two-thirds, to be precise-"is girls." The same proportion of the school belongs to the Roman Catholic Church, and "a lot of the students here are religious." Men and non-Catholics need not worry about fitting in here, though. At Neumann, "Everyone is friendly and gets along." There is a 16 percent minority population, a sizable non-traditional student group, and, as the years pass, "the campus is growing more and more diverse." Fortunately, "It's easy to make friends," and a friendly vibe pervades the school. It's the kind of place where "students hold doors open for you. Even if you are steps away from the door, they wait until you get there."

Campus Life

You'll find a "quiet environment" at Neumann. The campus is dry, and residence halls are "strict with alcohol," so there are "no big parties" on campus. Students admit, "it does get a little boring"-so much so that many of "those living on campus leave on the weekends." Others head to "parties off campus" or simply enjoy "hanging out with friends" in the dorms. The Student Activities Board "offers a good amount of events for students to have some fun on campus," including novelty nights, dances, and black-light volleyball. Hockey games are also extremely popular. "There are shuttles to the rink for games," so students don't have to worry about driving or parking. In addition, "the school provides transportation to the malls and other places." Still, many here feel "having a car is a must" because "there is not much to do in the immediate area surrounding the college." There is, however, "a lot to do within a 15 to 30-minute drive off campus" including "three malls, a number of movie theaters, clubs, [and] bars."
