4 College Sophomore

Academics: Lots of people don't think of Point Park as a particularly good school for anything besides the performing arts, but this really isn't the case. Sure, the school is still coming up the ranks, but the school has very useful and impressive connections, and the programs/classes don't really get the credit they deserve. The staff in the communications department are all people who have been working in the professions we are training for. Not only that, but they are really good at what they do. The classes are realistic, we lean the skills we will really be using, and the professors and teachers don't sugar coat anything. The workload can be a lot sometimes, but that's to expected in my opinion, and the assignments really are relevant to what we are doing in class.

Moreover, the school as well as the individual departments go to great lengths to give students job and internships opportunities. They bring in experts to give lectures, they send out huge amounts of emails telling students about any and all jobs/internships that relate to their majors, and they set up job/internships fairs all the time. It's just a matter of students showing up and taking advantage of what the school gives us.
