What Students Are Saying

3.43 Average Rating
if you do not like singing and music this is not the school for you! copa (musical theater, singing, acting ect) is a big majority of the school and they do sing and dance in the hallways and elevators, some can be snobby but alot are really nice. if you like the big city and being close to pretty much everything then this is a good school for you. its a nice small campus and decent size classes so there isnt much to worry about.

Some core classes seem unnecessary. But, it is a liberal arts school. Perhaps the best thing to do is take the core classes at a cheap community college and transfer the credits over. That way you can focus on your major while at Point Park.
Joseph from Cochranton, PA
Get accustomed to using elevators, as this is an urban campus which means the buildings are tall and skinny with many floors. Sometimes it takes 10 minutes to get to the first floor from my room on the 16th due to the high traffic and various stops it has to make along the way. Also, familiarize yourself with the general area around the school so that when you have free time you are able to do what and go where you want.
Alex from York, PA
~For upcoming students I would definitely watch for the professors you have. Some professors are amazing and some are not so great.
~Make sure you have a reasonable schedule. Don't cram a ton of classes in your first semester.
~Make sure your classes are at a decent time so you know you can get to them.
~Most importantly TALK TO YOUR PROFESSORS!!! The school sends you a book list but not all teachers use the book.
~Try to meet as many people there during your first semester.

Apply early because they offer amazing scholarships and the earlier you apply, the better your chances are for receiving them.
Student from Pittsburgh, PA
The campus isn't exactly prime real estate, but if Point Park has the major you are looking for it is totally worth it. You will learn a lot more than you think. Also, all of the people you go to class with are just as passionate for the subject as you (hopefully) are.
Angelo from Pittsburgh, PA
If your not to fond of the arts Point Park may not be the school for you. Point Park does offer other majors besides the arts but I do not feel as if they are as strong or as noticed. Point Park is an excellent school and you should definitely look into it!
