Most Helpful Review for Point Park University

As a student enrolled in the Cinema & Digital Arts major I feel as though I have learned a tremendous amount about film making. The four year program is set up in a very structured manner that encompasses full learning potential. Point Park is also expanding yearly. Soon most of downtown Pittsburgh will be Point Park University.

    I am highly disappointed in Point Park University. For a school that prides itself so much in it's diverse and open tendencies, I've found many people, professors, and opportunities to be closed, rude, and lackluster. Also the lack of experience in organization the school shows in essentially all aspects is absolutely disgraceful.

    Its a great school with excellent teachers. The atmosphere on campus is electric and has a great location. The prices for tuition are fair and doesn't vary with out of state students.

    Point Park is a very smoothly ran school. Its main focuses seem to be in the arts and would say that the Conservatory of Performing Arts is the main reason of attendance. I see the university from a strictly COPA view.

    A program that will teach you everything you want to know, and will expose you to many other interests along the way. It has an extensive and incredible learning experience filled with knowledgeable professors. A small pleasant college experience in the heart of a big city.

    Point Park is a very diverse school because it has a variety of people and offers many majors. Point Park also has many faculty members that still are working in the area that they are teaching in so they can give us up to date real world advice. Lastly, Point Park offers many opportunities to their students and the teachers truly care about everyone so I would rate it 10 out of 10!

    Its a great school with great teachers but i feel like it does not offer as much as it should to international students, job opportunities are limited and you have to compete for those with the work-study students.. so, u probably wont get 1

    Point Park has some incredibly rigors programs but the school as a whole feels very disjointed. It is a predominately commuter school with an urban campus and very little sense of community. Point Park will give you a great education if you are in a good program but this is not a typical Campus Life experience.

    An environment that encourages learning. An environment that challenges you to do your best. An environment that lets you know you matter equally.
