Chatham is not a place for everyone. As a small, single-sex institution, the social scene can be too slow for some, and the same-sex campus might be too stifling for students who would enjoy having a coed campus. As one student states, "The school is great at marketing but not at holding up their end of the bargain."  The Chatham administration tends to spend more money on marketing to increase its undergraduate enrollment while letting current students simply fall through the cracks. However, the academics are challenging, the professors extremely engaged with the students, and the alumni connection in Pittsburgh is second to none. Students are required to complete an internship before graduating which gives students work experience in their chosen field.

Students note that it can be easy to get stuck in the Chatham "bubble," or feeling trapped on campus. But an outing to any of the surrounding neighborhoods for some shopping, a bite to eat, or a night out can quickly solve this problem. Joining an athletic team or a student organization can also help students feel more involved and a part of campus. Campus safety is also rated high, a facet of the Chatham experience with which students are very pleased. Students say the Public Safety officers maintain a good presence on campus. Chatham University is unlike any other school. The Shadyside campus is beautiful, and the residence halls are one-of-a-kind. Most students are pleased with the dining options on campus, the close relationships with professors, and the opportunities available to study abroad.
