4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Really nice and awesome! A few students really helped to improve campus security with our ideas of leaving the lights on more and increasing the amount of officers on campus as well. They definitely took our concerns into consideration.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Very easy! Sam is one of the best people to help with admissions!

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Very spacious but homey feel to it. I love the new and old amenities mixed into the school.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The teachers are pretty awesome, but of course there are always some that are lacking in any school. The administration needs serious improvement especially the guidance counselors. It's like they are never sure of anything they are doing or taking on way too much. The campus is very old and it does weigh on god a bit but it's a catholic school so it's expected but overall it's a really awesome school even if a bit pricey.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: It is a awesome University!

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Carlow University offers lots of support designed to help the student succeed.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Security is wonderful and close by on campus. If they are needed, there will be someone available to help anyone in need. I have never felt unsafe on campus.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I enjoy my school very much! I always find myself wanting to go to class, never skipping, and doing all of my work. I have met some diverse and wonderful people both students and professors here. I'm excited to continue my studies at this school.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The school takes many intiatives to help students get jobs and even help with the application process. Anytime I mention Carlow to someone they respond with "Wow! That is a great school!"

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I'm not a part of Greek Life but I know people who are. It is pretty average and does not affect much on campus.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: This school isn't known for its sports so everything is pretty average in this area.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love this school! My classes are small and teachers are helpful and seem to care about students and their courses. My favorite thing is the liberal arts education because I have a wide range of interests so it fits me well.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Somehow Carlow has found a perfect balance or old and new. You are directly in the middle of older, traditional buildings/grounds/architecture, but has the same amount of updated technology and resources. It makes for a perfectly balanced experience. While the campus is smaller than many other schools, there is no shortage of activities and social scenes (both alcohol and non) surrounding the area. It has the perfect mix of students: young/older, traditional/non-traditional, day/evening, and a wide variety of different backgrounds and lifestyles.

I love the one-on-one experience and assistance that I have received from the faculty and staff at Carlow University. The professors are extremely kind and fair, easy to communicate with, and make every attempt to help their students succeed. Of course you have some students who say same professors are horrible, but those are usually the ones who do not do their work. Personally, I could not attend a school where I'm one little seat in a big theater, and only 1 out our 300 students. I need the more personalized atmosphere and connections. I have complete 4 semesters at Carlow, and I would not change it for the world!

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I personally know different people who previously graduated from Carlow. They all have wonderful careers in their fields, and make the salary that they should expect with their degrees. Before I finished my admissions into Carlow, I asked each one of them if they could go back (knowing what they've learned during and since leaving college) and pick a different school to attend, where would they go? Every single one said that they would pic Carlow again. In my experiences (32 years of life experiences), I have never heard of that, and it speaks volumes.

Health & Safety: With the smaller atmosphere, everybody knows everybody. I know that can create drama at times, but it also creates a larger amount of safety and accountability. As a female, I feel EXTREMELY SAFE at Carlow, and have never had any problems, day or night. Also, I have been there 2 years and have never heard of any incidents. They work hard to make sure that we have drills and precautions in place, in case of an emergency. In fact, I feel so safe that I have brought my daughter to campus many, many times, and will continue to do so.

Greek Life: There are not a lot of Greek organizations because Carlow is a smaller, more personal population. For students who want to be involved, there are options, but they do not include the party life. However, Carlow is in Oakland, and close to the other party areas in Pittsburgh, so it really is not needed.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Carlow is simply amazing. If you are looking for a personalized, one-on-one education, I highly suggest giving it a try. In addition, the school staff go out of their way to assist adult and returning students (which I am). They definitely do not neglect the younger population either! I personally know many people who have graduated from Carlow, and they all have said their degree was well worth it!!

Athletics: Athletics are not the "hallmark" at Carlow, but they do offer a variety and are always adding more. When people make suggestions, Carlow is amazing at listening and helping the students with their suggestions. We definitely will not be in the Final Four any time soon, but for a smaller, more private school, they offer a good selection. There is a good amount of support for Carlow, and everyone who goes there loves to represent!

Campus Housing: The housing is great. Everyone on your floor is like a huge family. The cost is decent for the dorms but you do automatically get a scholarships to help out with the costs. Depending on the floor you live on, depends on the furniture you have. Some rooms have lofted beds while others do not. Some rooms always have moveable furniture while others do not. The rooms do come with a mini fridge and a microwave which saves a lot of money.

Greek Life: We have a couple of Greek life atmospheres here. We even have one that is totally dedicated to community service. Everyone gets along very well at Carlow University and the events are always opened to other students that are not even involved in Greek life.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Even though Carlow University does not have many sports, we do take pride in going to the games and supporting our team. Carlow even has their own gym that is mainly for people who are in a sport to train. The facility is very helpful and very supportive too.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Here at Carlow University, they are very helpful in making sure you succeed. If you are struggling, your professors will actually sit down with you and figure out what you can do. We also have a very cool career center that helps you find job interviews and interneships. They even help with your resumes and over letter and will go over the interview process with you.

2 College Freshman

Athletics: Our school has limited amount of sports. we do not have a football team which its a hamper on our schools school spirit. Also, we have about 5,000 students and majority of the students commute. there is little school spirit and because we have to travel to another location for every game, it is rare that majority of the students attend every game.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: my favorite experiences at my school are making different friends, living on campus, and being able to be right next to multiple other colleges. my school is unique because it is a mercy school and incorporates all the mercy values into each course that students take. We also have nuns and sisters on campus, as well as a grade school and daycare. I would not choose my school again if i could do it all over again because I feel like I am still in high school sometimes. Additionally, some of the resources we are provided with are mediocre. For example, our sports team do not have games held on campus because there is not an efficient amount of space.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on Campus, as Carlow has their own police force, which is always there to help. I don't know of any campus crimes of any kind. There are many security measures to keep students safe such as outsiders not being able to get into buildings and having regular fire drills. I feel like Carlow takes good safety precautions and I feel safe here.
