Carlow University Reviews
Having attended Carlow University for five years, I have seen all the in ins and out of the University both being positive and negative. Firstly, I have not a single negative aspect to say about the the professor and the academics that i have receive over the course of my time attending Carlow. The campus is nothing but beautiful and the location is phenomenal being right in the heart of Oakland, Pa. The food's not very great at all and the circulation of choice are very vague. There is barely any party scene, which is great for those serious scholars, but not very great for those party animals out there. The dormitories are pretty small, especially when you are sharing a room with another student and the restrooms are locker room designed, which can be a negative for those that like or need privacy. Overall, my experience at Carlow University was pretty decent!
The university has amazing food, and amazing study grounds. Being in the heart of pittsburgh is so great, it allows you to have so much fun! The professors are amazing here and are very clear about what they want. The campus is all close together, so there isn't all that much walking involved. And they have a killer gym and swimming pool!
Carlow University is a fine school to attened post- high school. Being in their nursing program is fantastic, it is one of the best around, competing with their neighbors Pitt and Duquesne. Although the school's nursing program is reputable and is an achievement, the rest of the school's programs and area could see improvement. Being that the school is in debt, a lot of the other programs have little funding, meaning they are not provided with sufficient enough materials to be successful. As for the campus, the University Commons and A.J. P. Science and Technologies building are updated and modern-equipped, whereas all of their other buildings are old and outdated.
