Describe the students at your school.

My classmates are very opinionated and not very open-minded about different topics.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

The main piece of advice that I would give to an aspiring college graduate would be to really cherish the experience while you have it, because it definitely goes by way to fast. The grass is always greener on the other side, and when your going through college, all you can seem to do is complain about the stress and workload and just wish for it to be over, and then sure enough it ends, and all you find yourself doing is begging to go back! It's also really important to actually focus on your schoolwork, and strive to get above average grades. A lot of people choose college's based on how big of a party school it is. but in the end, how much you drank during your 4 years at that college or University, isn't going to get you a successful job in the real world. Overall, have a great time, make a lot of unforgettable friends, and really dig deep to find out who you are as a professional in your preferred field of study.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frustrating thing about Carlow would probably have to be the fact that the entire campus is basically on a hill. Therefore, no matter which building you are going to for class, you have to truck up a huge hill in order to get there. It get's very annoying in the winter too, when its cold and icy!

Make sure that you chose based on academics and not partying, but keep inconsideration that you may not get the total college experince by doing so

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I wish I would have known that I was going to hate commuting to school everyday and that the academics were going to be so intense and such a fight to stay into my major.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

College is not only about the grades and education, it is also about the life experiences that one has while moving through the transitions and choices that are made while living it. It is important , I believe, to step outside of your comfort zone, and not take the "easy way out" when it comes to college choice. Going away to school gives so many life experience opportunities that may not be available to you otherwise. Choose somewhere far from home, learn to make new friends and live in a new place. It really makes all the difference. Once you do choose your university, GET INVOLVED. Being involved in campus activities will help you make friends and memories that will last a lifetime. College is really an opportnity to find yourself, learn who you are and what you want out of life. Academically it is important to know your learning style and time management skills. College is fun, but also hard work. Dont ever loose sight of the big picture and the goal that you are striving to fulfill. Take full advantage of this unique time in your life to explore YOU because it will be gone before you know it.

What kind of person should attend this school?

A person who is interested in a liberal arts, woman-centered education. Carlow is mostly an all girls university, so whoever attends should be prepared for that. Someone who is focused and career oriented on their education should attend here, as well as someone who likes to have fun! Pittsburgh and Carlow offer great activities and student organizations to be be a part of. This person should also like a smaller campus with smaller class sizes and no teacher aides in place of professors. They should be looking for a quality eduction vs quantity of students.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

I tell my friends from home how much fun Carlow is and how you "can't beat a private school education". I love my small school, and I also brag about the "all girls" factor as my school is about 97% female with all girls dorms. I really like this aspect of my school and think that it keeps us all focused, and makes us stronger women. My school has so much to offer on and off campus and I love living in the city! Pittsburgh is a really great place to be!
