4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Many of my professors are real professionals in my career and can actually help me with what I want to do for the rest of my life. They really care about me as a person and it really makes going through school all the more worth it.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: There are so many internship opportunities right near the school. We get emails daily about new internships or jobs that pop up, and they tell Point Park first because so many people from our school have taken them in the past and it has been successful for them. There are constantly employers posting jobs around campus or even setting up a booth letting students know they are hiring. The career services office puts on several Career Fairs each semester which are so giant that students from other schools attend them too! They are a great opportunity to get your name and face right in front of employers.

5 College Senior

Health & Safety: Point Park's Police work closely with that of the city of Pittsburgh to ensure that everyone is safe at all times. Safety issues rarely happen and the police force are always willing to walk you home at night if you feel unsafe. There are many "help" buttons around campus that you can press that immediately contact the police in case of an emergency, and their response time is lightning quick because there are always enough people on duty. They are all very friendly as well.

Campus Housing: Since Point Park is a vertical campus, everything is very close together which makes living on campus very convenient. And with the sky-bridge that connects Thayer Hall and Lawrence Hall, many Freshmen don't have to go outside to get to many of the school's main areas, including laundry, the Registrar and Financial Aid offices, the mail room, or even the Cafeteria. College dorms are never the best, but I loved living there even as a freshmen. I living in both Thayer and Lawrence, and they were both very livable. Thayer has air conditioning but no private bathrooms, and Lawrence had no air conditioning but private bathrooms. I honestly really enjoyed them both! And if you really hate your roommate, there's always a lot of places to get away to in order to get some work done without having to be in your room.

4 College Senior

Athletics: I am not really a big sports fan, but Point Park is perfect for someone who isn't into sports or someone who is into them. We don't have football, but we have basketball, baseball, softball, rugby, soccer, and even cheerleaders. If you want to get involved in either playing or spectating a sport, the opportunities are abundant, but if you aren't so into them, there also isn't an overbearing focus on them, which makes it the perfect middle-ground for both sides of the coin.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I love being a student at Point Park University. I can make my experience my own and make the most out of my time in college. I have made strong networking connections in my field from my professors and from our neighboring downtown community of businesses. The entire university's staff and faculty is kind and dedicated and I feel like I could go to any one for anything and they would go out of their way to help me.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I did have one teacherthat obviously only cared about getting their quota in for grades as far as students go (he took test questions straight from wikipedia, Used the study guid as the test and left the room for 10 minutes during our final exam) but other than that all my teachers have seemed to really care about each and everyone of us getting good grades and if we didn't then they would do everything in their power to try to help us.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: As far as my program is concerned, it is looked on highly from proffessionals outside of the school.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I have always felt safe walking around campus and have never had any experience with sexual assult

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I have not had too much experience here so I cant say if its good or bad.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I am in love with this school! All the teachers that I have had love what they do and really care about their students. The campus feels very safe, and is within walking distance of everything!
