    When researching colleges, Carlow has a great variety of majors. I was interested in biology, but not sure what to do with that. Carlow offers a biology major with certifications in either Perfusion technology, autopsy, and respitory therapy. Most colleges do not offer the certifications in specific areas of biology. This is the main reason I chose to attend Carlow.

    Be prepared to take a few classes that are required; however, try to make the most of them and keep an open mind (GPA booster?). The first semester is easier than the second one - they try to ease you into it. There are a lot of stairs on campus and certain elevators take awhile; be prepared.

    Students looking into Carlow need to realize just how small it is and what that entails for a college experience. Having a place where everyone knows everything about one another can be both a blessing and a curse. In addition, for students living on campus, it's good to look into the dining hours because they are really, really bad and hard to plan around, as the school is so small. Socially, it is good to try and branch as far as you can. I suggest making friends with the commuter students, because a lot of the girls that live on campus are sort of entitled. Pitt and Duquesne are also close, so making friends from there is a really good idea.

    TALK TO EVERYONE ASSOCIATED WITH CARLOW!!! They are ALL there to help YOU! :) From the admissions, financial aid, IT, academic resources, and ESPECIALLY the instructors. Here, you are NOT just another body in a gigantic lecture hall. Everything is more personal and every single person I have encountered will go out of their way to help you in whatever way they can. Be open and take the steps to introduce yourself to your instructors and any other staff, because they won't know you need help unless YOU ask. I haven't even completed one semester, and I am on a first name basis with a lot of Carlow staff (I ask a LOT of questions)! No one has ever made me feel like I'm dumb, or I should figure it out on my own, because they all actually care!!
