Not worth the investment for the IArch program. Do not enroll if you have an art or design background. Get confirmation on meetings and conversations with Dean in writing.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Chatham University is an all around amazing university. It is located in Shadyside and Squirrel Hill which are small neighborhoods in Pittsburgh. The campus is not downtown, however with your student ID you are able to ride the public transportation for free around the city. The school and area itself are very diverse, having a large Jewish, Middle Eastern and Indian, Asian as well as African American presence throughout. Chatham l is very accepting of the LGBTQ+ community and has a zero tolerance policy on discrimination. Chatham may be small but it is perfect if the student is looking for a more intimate setting. Class sizes range anywhere from 10 - 40 students, and TA's and professors are easily accessible via email. The campus housing is triple or double occupancy apartments, or up to quad occupancy dorms in converted mansions. There is a sports culture, Lacrosse and Basketball, but there is an arts scene as well. Career Development, Student Employment and our academic advisors are all extremely helpful. Additionally, half of my tuition is paid for by merit scholarships that everyone qualifies for. Chatham U ranks a 10/10!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Chatham University is an overall good school. It has a great campus vibe with the relationships you make with other students and with the faculty. I am apart of only a couple clubs on campus, but there are an abundance offered. Not to mention the opportunity to create your own. On the academic side, there are some changes that could be done to gain even more benefit to the students. However, I feel I will graduate from Chatham with a good education and a great experience to remember.

I really love it here at Chatham University. It is a very welcoming and family oriented college. It’s really easy to make friends here and I feel very safe when I am on campus. I really enjoy that is is by a lot of food and shops. The nursing program is really great to learn from.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, I believe it's an amazing educational campus with close ties to all the medical advancements Pittsburgh has to offer. But being a pre-med student with a passion for the arts, I'm disappointed. I came from a performing arts high school. to a drama club of 15 members. I love them, don't get me wrong. But I look for stress relief and comfort in the theater and it's just sad that we aren't granted the funds we need for the 'musicals' we put on. The student participation is horrible, everybody really needs to step it up. GET INVOLVED IN EVERYTHING. That's how you meet people and experience life. Although, there is no shortage of political debates. The housing could use a little help. I'm not one for shared singular bathrooms for an entire floor of people. Really these things are minor details, but are important to note. The campus is beautiful, it looks like a fairy tale and you feel like a rich family spending time at their summer home. Chatham is quite safe, surrounded by upper-class families away from downtown Pittsburgh, Plus, all students get free busing to Pittsburgh and it's surrounding areas. The class sizes are very small and personable!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Chatham University is a nice environment. The variety and quality of food is mediocre. There is a shortage of activities of importance such as volunteering. It has it’s flaws; however, it’s a place of education with an astounding staff ready to teach.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, my opinion is that Chatham University has a lot of potential, but it hasn't wholly acted on it. The school advertises itself as being incredibly progressive and inclusive, but there are big issues. Trans students are misgendered constantly in administration documents, there is a lecture hall dedicated to a eugenicist, and the marketing team tokenizes the nonwhite and queer students on campus for their advertising. In addition, they have signed on far more students than they can house, and the housing they do have isn't great. The students can't have air conditioners unless it's for medical reasons, the dorm halls are prone to leaks and flooding, and a few buildings have mice. That being said, the curriculum is excellent. The writing courses cover a variety of genres, and they hold class readings to encourage young writers to present their work. The professors I've had are all kind, helpful, and skillful teachers. I've been challenged academically without struggling. Overall, I'd say Chatham excels at academic challenge but falls short on it's promises of inclusivity.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love chatham. As soon as I stepped in, I knew it was going to be my home. Everybody is positive, smiling, and accepting of differences. The teachers care about their students, and teach to help them learn, not just for pay. The campus is beautiful and I have never felt safer in any other community area. I can’t wait to go to chatham university.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I believe Chatham University is a school where they take pride and encourage their students to be the best. They are a community that will hear you and are very inclusive. If you need help with anything pertaining to your classes, Chatha professors are always ready to lend a hand. As a student-athlete, it's encouraging and less stressful knowing that professors are there to help you. But don't forget to be a student first before an athlete. Academics always come first, the rest will follow.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Chatham University is a small school located within the heart of Pittsburgh. There is always something to do on campus but if there isn’t something for you it’s conveniently located minutes from Squirrel Hill and Shadyside, and a short bus ride to the other universities in the area. Chatham students are able to take classes at other nearby universities if a class is not offered at Chatham.
