5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Point Park doesn't just have public safety, it has its own entire police force.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The class size is perfect, and your teachers get to know you by name. They're very easy to approach with questions on anything. The courses, for the most part, are really interesting.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Students are strongly encouraged to get an internship in their sophomore year, and the Center for Student Success is very helpful in that process.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: It's a pretty small school and it doesn't have many athletics at all. And the one thing I dislike about my school is that it doesn't have a marching band.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love the urban campus, and that it's small. I'm not running to get to my classes. And I would choose it again because I am truly enjoying my experience there, and my commute is easy because it's so close to home. Most of my professors are great.

2 College Junior

Overall Experience: Some of the professors OK but I just don't like the school there's no sense of unity know where to have fun tell him to bond with

Greek Life: Greek life could give a boost to the culture of the school

2 College Junior

Overall Experience: Each day here I think about how much I hate the school. My experience as an undergrad at slippery rock was way better than the school, not to mention how much better the facilities and campus and people are

3 College Junior

Athletics: Never heard that it is a thing for people to attend games here. I do know one athlete but they have become only an acquaintance.

4 College Freshman

Academics: The Professors are extremely friendly and love to get to know their students. They are very open about being their for assistance, and many allow you to ask for help even after you're through with their class. The assignments obviously vary in their difficulty level, but overall I did not find anything to be over-the-top challenging. With every assignment I actually learned something valuable.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Not only is the staff highly involved in the health and safety of the students, but the students themselves are extremely cautious and outspoken about the issues of sexual assault. Alcohol is prohibited on campus, even if you are 21. All administrators and staff are qualified to help a victim of sexual assault get the medical attention, counseling, and law enforcement assistance they need. Also, in the beginning and middle of the year every student is required to do an online health and safety class. It details the dangerous of illicit drug and alcohol use, sexual assault, and what to do if in these situations.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There is no place I'd rather be than Point Park. It's such a homey place in the middle of the fast-paced urbanity of Pittsburgh. Everyone has a place, and no one is an outsider. I love every minute I spend on campus talking with friends or even people I've never talked to before. Every day is a new experience with a new adventure, and I can't say that any other school can give you that kind of life.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The Career Center designates different advisers to every student to individualize their experience. I have yet to have to use this tool, but from the words of upperclassmen, the center is extremely good at what they do. Students are encouraged to use it to help them find internships in the summer, and after graduation, a career.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I personally live off campus, but all of my friends live in the dorms. All of them like the rooms, but depending on which building you're in, there's different pros and cons. In Academic Hall, the dorms are newer, have air conditioning, but they have communal bathrooms. In Lawrence Hall, the dorms are older with some renovations, the rooms have personal bathrooms, but no air conditioning. These building are located right on campus with class just steps away. There is also the different apartment buildings the school uses for upperclassmen living on campus. Those are much nicer and have personal amenities.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The gymnasium, Highmark Stadium, and fitness center are all pretty nice. Everything is relatively new, and the facilities are kept clean.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Point Park University is often underestimated by potential students. Everyone assumes it's just for Performing Arts, but in reality it has amazing academic programs. The professors love to get to know their students, and it's easy to do because class sizes are typically small. A majority of the students are extremely open, accepting, and friendly. I love the environment and feel extremely comfortable. I live off campus, and around 70-75% of the students also live off campus. However, the dorms are pretty nice. Overall, this school is amazing. I love it. Pittsburgh is the best place to have an urban campus because every amenity anyone could dream of is right around the corner. Part-time jobs are easily obtainable, and most places work around your schedule. If you're looking to escape to somewhere new and exciting with fantastic opportunity, Point Park is the place to go.

Health & Safety: We live in the city and stuff has happened after it gets dark out.

5 College Junior

Academics: The workload at the school is very easy for me to accomplish and to grasp. My professors thus far have been incredible and willing to work with my heavy work and school load. I don't believe that I would've received the same response at a larger University.
