Majors: Not very much variety, but the ones we have are good.

4 College Freshman

Majors: It's hard to get used to a new art department after high school, and there are a couple of art instructors that I'm not a fan of, but the facilities are great and the classes are great.

5 College Freshman

Local Area: The campus is isolated from the busy-ness of the city, but as soon as you step off campus you're close to Pitt and downtown, and there's plenty to do. You can have the isolated atmosphere with the convenience of stuff to do in the city.

4 College Freshman

Administration: While the campus is strict, they understand you are adults.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Internships are required and they help you find them

Off-Campus Dining: Great variety and convenience but high cost.

Off-Campus Housing: Chatham does not provide services to help students find off-campus housing and does not allow any student not meeting a junior-ranking in credit hours to live off campus if not with a legal guardian.

College Sophomore

Party Scene: I know very little of the party life on campus as I am a commuter student.

5 College Junior

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: For how expensive the food is I would hope it would be better. The food depending on what it is can be either super tasty or not at all... It just depends on the day and what they are serving.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: Shadyside, Squirrel Hill and Oakland are all a short walk away or an even shorter bus ride away from Chatham's Campus

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Our teams are okay... it really depends on what sport you are coming for. Not a lot of people come to support you because most people here have their noses in books. Overall, Our school spirit is actually decent. Most people attend all school events and have fun!

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
