4 College Freshman

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.

Overall Experience: Graduates from this school receive many great career opportunities. There are also many internships and jobs opportunities available at Carlow. The alumni network is good and many employers recruit Carlow students. The quality of the career center is great also, as the people there are very helpful and knowledgeable.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I do not live on Campus, but I have heard about it from my friends. I have heard that campus life life is good. I have been to my friends rooms and they are clean and spacious. The dorm also has several community rooms to spend time with friends, which is really nice.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life on Campus is good. Fraternities and sororities are accepting of different kinds of members and are always trying to get other people to join. Greeks and non-Greeks get along with each other. Greeks also volunteer and do good things for the community.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: There are many sports to get involved with at Carlow. Many people participate in sports. I especially hear about people participating in basketball. Students are also eager to watch their sports teams play.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I would say that my school is great. Professors and advisers are very knowledgeable and helpful. There is a wide variety of classes to take and clubs to join. The students are very friendly and the atmosphere is friendly. One of my favorite experiences at this school was during Orientation week when I was able to get frozen yogurt with my friends an walk around with them.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The health and safety at Carlow University are excellent. There are police on campus at all times to ensure safety of the students. There are over 50 emergency call boxes throughout the campus.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Carlow University is a great place for resident students. The dorm building is extremely close to all of the buildings, allowing for a maximum 5 minute walk to class. Dorm life allows for building friendships with a roommate and those who live around you. The dorms are relatively spacious compared to many other universities and the RA's are pretty lax with rules.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Carlow University only has one social sorority, Delta Gamma Beta, which is a local chapter. All of the girls are extremely nice and throw great events for its members. However there are service fraternities and honor/educational fraternities to join on campus. If you are extremely set on joining a huge, national sorority, Carlow does not have that. Greek life doesn't affect too many non-greeks. The sisters of DGB usually stick to themselves or the pledges. Greek housing is not available because of Pennsylvania laws.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Carlow University is an accomplished university in the center of activity in the neighborhood of Oakland of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The professors are all experts in their field and really motivated to teaching their students and helping them at all times. The campus is small, but offers so much to its students. Great academics, a friendly campus, plenty financial aid, and a place that I am happy to call my home. I would choose Carlow University again because of the amazing Nursing Program they offer here. Carlow currently has a 95.7% NCLEX score; the highest in Pittsburgh right now. Clinical groups are kept to a maximum of 6 students, really allowing me to be hands on and ask many questions. I love Carlow and I can honestly say I am happy that I didn't choose any where else.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The professors are nice. They seem to provide well rounded education. When I'm struggling I stay after class if the have time to help me or go to their office.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: I don't know much about that. I still haven't experienced that.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: Security is tight at the front door. They make sure visitors check in and check out. There is very little crime that occurs here.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: From touring other colleges in and out the area, this college seems quite focal. It's small, surrounded by amenities, not much land and dorms and halls are up the driveway. If your GPA is above average ( i.e. 3.0) you will be given scholarships to pay for room and board. Dorms reflect groundwork because they are trying to expand the housing for more incoming students.They are big, fancy and modern day like the other bigger colleges in and near the area, but it's livable. The cost of it is quite high for the conditions, but if you can afford it then it's convenient. My opinion, if students can commute, then they should to save $8,000 from heightening their tuition. Otherwise, you should room with someone for the room and board to be divided in half. Once it's paid for they give you your room key and help you move in.The girls are very sociable. They plan the campus activities and help keep the spirit alive. Students get ecstatic on weekends like any other college.If you need help or have any questions or concerns about campus life someone may be willing to help.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: Greek life is small, seeing that it's a small school in college town. There are only a few members representing and active, but they are trying to go national.

3 College Senior

Athletics: Our basketball team is steadily improving. For a historical womens' college boys teams are increasing with the girls.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: The police usually only "investigate" if they smell pot.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Everyone goes to Pitt for parties because ir's a two minute walk and there are always parties there.
