University of Scranton

Scranton, PAwww.scranton.edu
The University of Scranton's 58-acre campus sits in the Pocono Mountains city of Scranton, where it's an integral part of the local community -- hosting more than 100 free public events each year. The university offers 68 bachelor's degree programs and 30 master's degrees to its roughly 5,500 students; for undergrads, the most popular majors are biology, exercise science, and accounting. A selective business leadership honors program, which selects 15 sophomores each spring, offers a specialized two-year curriculum to prepare students for executive roles. The school's Jesuit heritage is an important part of its programming: The campus ministry regularly hosts overnight retreats at a university-owned center on nearby Chapman Lake, and mass is held in the school's chapels several times a day. Even the school's mascot, Iggy the Royal Wolf, is named for St. Ignatius, the founder of the Jesuits. The University of Scranton features a state-of-the-art center for rehabilitation education, which will house its physical therapy, occupational therapy, and exercise science programs, all of which are expected to grow in coming years.
