Campus Housing: Freshman dorms are small, community bathrooms needs to be cleaned more often.

2 College Freshman

Athletics: Not many people pay attention to sports at PPU. I wish there was more focus towards them.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I enjoy Point Park University but I am changing my major that the school does not offer.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: The security that we have on our living communities are not the best. They do check everyone's student ID's when entering the apartment complex however since there are not gates around the complex other people from the community are always walking around. However for the next academic semester that is approaching Point University is having new housing located closer to the school. Therefore security will be better and the use of school ID's will be implemented more for security purposes.

Overall Experience: The Center for Calling and Career is phenomenal! the Calling and Career Center hosts several events for prospective students, students, and parents (i.e. graduate college fairs, internship fairs, military opportunities, and career fairs).They also have resume and interview building courses, job postings, and volunteer opportunities.

Athletics: The athletic facilities are great at Point University! The only addition that I would recommend would be to have a sports nutrition program.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I am a current junior at the university and I truly enjoy the atmosphere of the school. The small and intimate class sizes makes it easier for students to learn and to have a personal relationship with their professors. I am a student athlete and since I have been at the university the athletic program has continued to flourish. New sports are always added and different opportunities are always available for student athletes. Overall I am pleased with the education that i have received thus far!

Health & Safety: We have security on campus. However, I know of some students that still get away with partying, that snake marijuana, and have people of the opposite sex in their apartment past curfew. These are things that can lead to accidents or sexual assaults on campus and could be prevented by an improvement in campus security. Simply asking the students if they are okay and are having a good night is nothing compared to offering to walk with them to their apartment at night or knocking on doors to make sure everyone is safe.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have Attention Deficit Disorder, which really means I have a difficult time paying attention in class. My small classes make paying attention 100% easier for me because I get to sit on the front row and sometimes actually have a conversation with the professor about the topic we are discovering. My professors do not know me as a face out of 200 students but rather they know me as McKenzie Anderson. I love it. The courses that are offered cover a variety of topics however I feel as if I'm stuck to am exact class list because of my major. I do not feel like I have been given the opportunity to explore different majors or different ideas.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I am only a freshmen so I do not have any experience with internships and jobs through the school. However I do know that some seniors at our school have gained internship opportunities at churches in my home town as well as some of my friends getting a job as a youth pastor in local churches. For the younger student, opportunities are presented to have a job on campus to earn money. For example: working concession stands and helping organize files and working as a tutor.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: We do not have average dorms at Point University, instead we have an apartment complex. I love it. I have a kitchen, bathroom, living room, laundry room, bedroom, and a porch. Cleanliness checks are given by our RAs once a month, however I have been in several people's apartments and think that it would be appropriate to let the checks take place twice a month. I know several people who seem to leave food out to ruin and do not take care of the amazing living facility we have been provided with. The only downside to our apartment complex is that it is about 5 miles away from the academic centers. However, shuttle buses are provided for our convenience to get to the school when we need to.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Our athletic programs are of course not as big as most universities in the state. However, in several sports Point University has been one of the best teams in the region. For such a small school, the stands at all the sporting events are always filled with support from the student body. It is amazing to see new people at every athletic event and to see students building new relationships by getting involved.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It is a small school where the president knows the name of most of the students. There are endless opportunities to get involved and if you do not attend an event, it is guaranteed that you will receive a phone call from several students about your absence. My favorite parts about Point University are the many events that are aimed at furthering my spiritual experiences and improving my walk with God. I've come to learn so much more about the greatest story of all time at Point - the story of God's creation and it's path to the coming recreation. The grand-narrative of the Bible is all about God's world and our part in it. God intends for us to bring all the people of the world that we can into his Kingdom. That is our assignment and goal until the day the Jesus Christ himself returns. I could honestly go on forever about everything I have learned about the grand narrative of the bible, our purpose in God's world, the disobedience of God's people leading to destruction and God's deliverance for us, the relationships that were changed with the fall of man in the book of Genesis, and the relationships that will be prepared with the returning of the King. Perhaps the greatest thing I have learned is about using the talents that I have been given for the glory of my God. I would not have gotten this incredible spiritual experiences anywhere else. If given the opportunity I would definitely not choose any other school. I can not think of anything that I would change about Point. There may not be the largest selection of classes, there may be gossip due to the small body count of the school, there may not be a sorority house or a famous football team, however the presence of God is present in my school and has already helped me form some of the best relationships I could ever have and get an amazing education. The most amazing part is I still have seven more semesters to enjoy.

Overall Experience: Point University has great occupational therapy system, and I am going to enjoy it!

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Whether you're religious/spiritual or not, Point is a great school where you are a person and not just a number. Here professors care about who you are and want to get to know you. If you want to grow in your walk with Christ you have an abundance of way you can do so here as well. In addition to those things, I love all of our athletic teams and strongly support them.

Overall Experience: I like that the professors know you by name and when you are in need of help in any classes there is help available.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Point University has gone over and beyond my expectations as a college student. Coming to school here, I expected to go to class, workouts, and just do my thing. But Point is so much more than that. The community here is something I'd never experienced before, and I know the relationships built with both my fellow students and the staff are those that will last far beyond graduation. When you come to Point, you can feel the truth that you're a part of something bigger than yourself, and greater than you can ever imagined. The professors actually care about you, and make sure you know you're more than just a number, that you're a person with a story, and your story matters.
