Holy family is very nice. The staff is kind and helpful. It has a very accepting and relaxed and happy atmosphere. Not everyone is catholic so don't feel pressured. It's noticeably different from other campus moods. I personally didn't think the academics were very hard, but the grading system is ridiculous and stupid. I was prevented from getting an A twice because I had a 93. Overall though I've met a lot of nice people and I would recommend this school.

Holy Family is a great school if you like to do nothing and pray. Their grading system sets you up for failure. For example, an 82 isn't a B... it's not considered a B until it's over an 86. And as far as an A goes, it has to be above a 94. This school is expensive and lacks the modern technology a lot of other universities have. I wouldn't recommend. If you're looking for a school in Philly, try Temple or Chestnut Hill.
