What is your overall opinion of this school?

I regret spending my freshman year here. If you're not a theatre/dance major, they don't care about you. The food is bad, the location is kind of dangerous, and the classes barely taught me anything at all. You're definitely not getting your money's worth here. A bunch of people from my class ended up transferring because nobody liked it. You've been warned.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Point Park is nothing like anything I have ever seen. They have a major for anything creative and artistic. They have a major specifically for screenwriting. Not many othe colleges do that, normally they’ll put it under the same category as English and literature, but not Point Park University. Seeing them put effort in and having a major specifically for what I want makes me feel special and makes me believe that I, the student, is their first and upmost priority. Not to mention the facility staff is amazing. I have not attended the school yet, it so far every facility member I have meet are the most helpful and kindest people I’ve could ask for. From what I saw in the VR tour the housing, both on campus and off, are just what I need. Nothing too big nor too small. I have also explored the shopping areas and I just adore all the locally owned businesses along with my favorite name brand stores. In all honesty I cannot wait till I have the opportunity to take an actual tour, or shadow a student. It makes me want to apply for them right now just thinking about it!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My experience at Point Park has been mixed. Most of it has been good, since the staff and students are friendly, and I've learned more in the past year about film than my last three years of high school. The campus is also easy to access and move around in. However, on campus living has given me some headaches, primarily with dining as some of the food is not the best and options are decently limited. Overall, Point Park University has satisfied me in terms of campus life and academics, while also giving me a couple complaints about living on campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The food may not be that great, but the class sizes are. Smaller classes mean better learning opportunities and a better chance to connect with your professors if you might not understand or may need a little help with a topic. There are plenty of clubs to join, with a wide variety of topics to choose from.

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.
