They actually do not give out software, which they do at other universities. That's another cost you better take into consideration. The labs are TERRIBLE; you hardly ever find a working printer. Further, you have to PAY to print items after you use up your pre-set limit; I feel that should be free, too. In order for them to become copmpetitive in the collegiate community, they need to step their game up.

Most of the other local universities include a Port Authority bus pass in their tuition, so you can get around, but Point Park has dropped the ball on this one. As a commuter, it is really unfair that I have to spend 1,000 per year on transportation. ESPECIALLY when the tuition is already really high!

Downtown Pittsburgh closes early, so there is NOTHING to do in the evenings.

I have been to other universities, but I have found that the instructors at Point Park are down to earth aand accesible to take time iwith their students. I would recommend this school to anyone who is seeking a really positive educational experience,

The computers at Point Park are awful. In the dorms, there is no WiFi and an Ethernet cable has to be used, which is extremely inconvenient. The computer labs are extremely slow, and I have not had a single decent experience using the 24 hour computer lab to print.

If you are looking for any sort of Nightlife, do not go to Point Park. The only place to go and party is Oakland, and shuttles stop running to and from at midnight. Everything around Point Park closes at 6 pm. I'm sure the nightlife is fine for 21 and older, but until then, it is completely nonexistent.

Health & Safety:
I have never felt unsafe on Point Park's campus, it is just the areas surrounding it that could make a person feel unsafe.

I enjoy the Pittsburgh weather because it allows you to enjoy all four seasons.
College Freshman 2013-10-17T23:21:27Z
The local atmosphere is terrible. Everything around campus closes at 6 pm, providing nothing to do on the weekends.

The taxis are completely unreliable; I ended up stuck somewhere until 3 in the morning waiting for a taxi to arrive. The bus schedule is difficult to follow, especially if you are new to the city. Additionally, the buses do not often arrive at their scheduled times. The campus shuttles are easily accessible, but only run until midnight every night, including weekends, and do not have a large amount of choices as to where they take you. Overall, public transportation/Point Park transportation is not great.

I am living off-campus this year and it is proving to be a challenge but I am better for it. I am able to focus for longer periods of times because my job and living conditions are helping to ground me. I'm a Theater Arts Major and I am quite satisified with my education so far. I get the opportunity to put into practice what I am learning in the classroom. Now that my core classes are done, I can't wait to get to my COPA Classes! Point Park is awesome!

The Greek life here is rare. As a full-time student I have not had the pleasure of engaging with students or activities connected with the Greek culture.

The facilities for the Conservatory are great. We have a relatively small gym and library, but it is enough for the small school.
College Sophomore 2013-09-28T23:55:22Z
We have a campus shuttle that most people use from a specific area, but other than that, most people walk or take the bus.
College Sophomore 2013-09-28T23:54:06Z
The school is downtown, so there is very limited parking. The parking here is expensive as well. Most people take the bus or walk
College Sophomore 2013-09-28T23:53:07Z
We have no Greek life at our school.

Point Park's dining needs a lot of improvement. There are never any options and each year they get less and less.
College Junior 2013-09-20T05:57:03Z
I think that the sports here at point park are decent, but I don't pay attention to them because sports aren't my thing.
College Junior 2013-09-20T05:54:17Z
Point Park has a wide variety of people from different backgrounds, cultures, race, sexuality, etc. We are primarily known for as an arts university, so acceptance of differences is one of the things I think we do best. Students come here from all over knowing that their differences make them who they are as a person and and artist and they will be respected for that.

A typical internship is very hands on and teaches you alot about the actual field you are trying to get into.
College Sophomore 2013-08-28T16:46:40Z
the weather relay dos't affects classes in any way allthro i have yet to experience all four seasons.
College Sophomore 2013-08-28T16:39:26Z
I came to point park do to not only its in greatest city but it accepted the majority of my cadets i have already. The professors take the time out to talk and answer any questions as they come in an easy to understand way.Class discussion is encouraged and makes it worth going to class.

fantasist everyone here looks amazing probably because the majority of people i meet are in theater or dance.

I'm reside in Lawrence hall at point park, and I've been very satisfied with my education thus far. I'm a Electrical Engineer major, and all of my professors have been out in the field and are very accomplished in the industry. I've had some of the best instructors who have a tendency to get around. If you get to know them on a personal level, they can do wonders for you when it comes to networking or suggesting possible jobs.

If you decide not to take a bus (which is reasonable- they don't go everywhere, and the hours aren't the best), then you'd better be willing to drop a lot of cash to park at one of the numerous parking garages around the city! Many are close to campus- which is great- but the price is ridiculous.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
