What Students Are Saying

3.39 Average Rating
Carlow University is very personable. The staff is dedicated to the true learning of students. I would give Carlow a high rating for prospective students.
Kelsey from East Pittsburgh, PA
On a scale of 1-10, I rate Carlow as a 10. The private catholic school is very clean, has a small campus, and it feels like home. The campus is in the city, but when you are on campus, it feels like you are away from the city.
