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.

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.

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.

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

3 College Sophomore

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

4 College Sophomore

4 College Junior

Academics: Everything that I learn in the classroom is very relate able to my major and minor and becomes very useful.

4 College Junior

Drug Safety: You don't hear to much about drugs on campus.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel safe on campus. You have to scan into living areas with a student ID. It is pretty easy to get into Academic and Lawrence hall during the week though, you don't have to scan your ID until after 7. There's security on campus all the time and I have never had a problem with them. The health center isn't open enough though.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I lived in Thayer Hall my freshman year and wasn't too unhappy with my experience. It was a pretty big room and had no trouble with any of the furniture in my room. Having the air conditioner instead of a personal bathroom was honestly so worth it, when I visited friends in Lawrence Hall I had no idea how they survived without an air conditioner.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: There aren't many sports on campus, but it seems as if the students who participate are good at what they do

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: As a rising sophomore forensic science student, I am loving my classes and professors so far. Although being an academic major comes with the annoyances of the school caring about COPA students so much more than they do their academic students. It has me reconsidering this school, but I'm giving it a second chance. Student life can be exciting, there are a few major events throughout the year. Most students don't care about the events on campus though so it sucks.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Never had a problem. Although when it comes to people who breastfeed the room should be open for them a little bit more, since one of my friends had that issue during Spring semester, it was very stressful on her.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The professors are very generous and very understanding when it comes to deadlines as well.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I really love the class sizes. The students are very welcoming as well, and you are just able to be your own person because everybody is very accepting here.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I have never heard anything of greek life at our school.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I am not really involved in sports but I do love going to the gym!

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love how my teachers are very well engaged with students overall.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I generally feel safe on campus. Campus police are always around. There are lockers and resources to go to if you feel you've had something stolen or know about sexual assault.
