I never quite knew how to feel about the University of Scranton. I considered going there, but chose Marywood instead. I remember a member of the Marywood administration, saying at orientation back in 1979 that the U of S was twice as big. Marywood was twice as good. I was never convinced of that. I'm sure there would have been those at the University of Scranton who would have said they were twice as big and twice as good.Back in my day, Marywood clearly had the aesthetics advantage. We had trees and grass. The U has caught up, a little. It's become a nice looking urban campus.
