What is your overall opinion of this school?

Point Park is a good college, the diversity is great. Being in the center of Downtown Pittsburgh gives so many opportunities, unlike other Universities keeping in mind that most of them are secluded. Point Park is known for their dance and business majors, of course they offer other majors and minors however their focus is based on those two. I began my college career in Point Park and I am going into my Junior year, as I am attending I have stayed on campus, but plan on moving off next semester because of the expense.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I could not have asked for a better education program in Pittsburgh. The field experience opportunities that I was provided and networking connections I’ve been able to develop throughout the local districts makes me feel confident about my post-graduation job opportunities and performance. I feel prepared to manage a classroom full of middle schoolers and teach using multiple pedagogical methods.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I believe Point Park has a great academic facility and has an advantage point of being in the heart of downtown. Although student activity i feel is not that popular considering it is a very small school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

At Point Park University, I feel as though the city is my campus. I have more opportunity here for internships and employment in my desired career field than I would anywhere else, and I am surrounded by hundreds of thriving businesses of all sizes. Point Park has the benefits of being a small school in a big city, so I am able to have close relationships with my professors and peers while still being able to experience the diverse cultures that surround campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Point Park University equips its students with the opportunity to obtain the largest amount of education possible. We are allowed to take up to 18 credit hours in our normal tuition. The campus has it's own police ensuring that safety is a priority. The food accommodates the majority of diets. The location enables students to live in an urban atmosphere. The university allows for its students to intern, study abroad, and maximize eduction. The classes are small allowing for an amazing student to professor ratio. Point Park is an amazing university that is a strong competitor against Juilliard with its arts program. They bring in famous choreographers to give students the opportunity to see the work force at first glimpse and work with experienced prospects in the dance community. The George Rowland Center is state of the art with refurbished marley floors, in-house theatre for performances, and seven large dance rooms. The professors are always available and there are several ways to seek help when needed. Students have access to a work out center, library, bookstore, shuttle service to shopping malls and grocery stores, bike rentals, gymnasium, on campus activities, as well as village park to engage with friends. Point Park University may be small but they equip students with the proper education to succeed after graduation.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Point Park University is a dynamic liberal arts school in the heart of downtown Pittsburgh. It is a very inclusive environment. There are opportunities for everyone. The professors are working professionals in their field, and all students get very hands on, outside of the classroom experience. Real world learning at its finest.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a great school meant to help you succeed in life. While they're more focused on their top majors (SAEM, Dance, and Journalism), the other majors are still great and the professors are so helpful. If you don't like loud people, it's not the best school for you, but it's a liberal arts school, so it's what we expect.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

One of the worst things about Point Park is the lack of athletic teams. I love football, but we don't have a football team and sports aren't really taken seriously by anyone who isn't involved in sports. It's a great school, but I wish I had a football team to root for sometimes.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

You get from Point Park University what you put into it. The Freshman dorms are abysmal. The cafeteria options are lacking to say the least. I never thought that I would dread eating, but somehow, the cafeteria has brought that upon me. This being said, if you are looking for a good, hands-on cinema production program with faculty who are active in ensuring the quality of your education, Point Park is a good school to consider. The film department faculty are some of the most encouraging, helpful, and still yet realistic people in the industry that you will meet. Physically, Point Park is still a work in progress. Academically, it's almost worth the arm and leg it costs to attend.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Point park is a very crowded, downtown university. What we lack in sports we make up for in art and media. With multiple buildings at our disposal for housing and classroom services Point Park is a fun, and challenging experience. Overall Point Park is a great college, but like most some things can be improved.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am not exaggerating when I say that Point Park University is my dream school. Its location is ideal for my major and I have easy access to anything I could ever need and more. The people that go here are just like me in the sense that they want to thrive in what they do and they know Point Park can get them to where they need to be.
