Admissions Interview: No - No
Information Session: Yes - The information session was run by two admission representatives. It was very infomative.
Campus Tour: Yes - It was summer, so no students around. I liked the way the campus was laid out. There were still lots of green grass and landscaping, although it is an urban campus.

Campus Visit Notes for The University of Scranton
We had heard good things about this Jesuit school and went during summer vacation to check it out. Admissions is in a building called the "Estate" a restored historic building which gives a good first impression. I think the academics are pretty good here. There are core curriculum requirements. (High percentage of applicants get into med school and law school) Small Class sizes. Div III sports. NO football. No winter/spring track and field. No foreign language requirement.
Guarantees housing for four years. Brand new Sophomore housing. Only junior and seniors are allowed to have cars.
Freshman get an unlimited meal plan.
The tour guide talked favorably about dorm life and school spirit.
Hotel/Lodging Recommendations or Comments:
We drove from home. Ate at the Groundround Restaurant at the mall downtown. (Not great but adequate)
Other Comments (Transportation, local attractions, parking, etc.):
Only Junior and seniors are allowed to have cars.
We asked if kids going home to points east take the train and were told many take a Greyhound bus.
