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!
I find my school academically challenging especially in the scientific science. Being challenged helps me understand difficult concepts which will make life easier in the end.
Carlow unversity accept all races and color people they believe in equality and giving equal right and freedom to each students with facilities. In future I would like to change computer systems because it’s very slow.

Carlow is a good school to go to if you’re looking for a good academic program. If you are looking for a party scene go elsewhere. It is close to pitt, CMU, and Duquesne so you could always crash their party’s. I went to the nursing school. It is a tough program but if you pass you will most likely pass your nclex. Most area hospitals love Carlow nurses and you will not have a hard time finding a job.
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!
Carlow is a great university for students looking for a more intimate experience. The small campus and class sizes allow you to create relationships easier with your peers and professors. There is only one dorm hall which would be nice to see expand to accommodate more students. Carlow is definitely growing and every program is top notch.
The instructors are wonderful, but administration runs the school terribly. Also it is really expensive for very few amenities and little support.
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.
I am starting my sophomore year here and it is the school of my dreams. You get to be right in the heart of this city with a small community vibe.
I like the smaller class sizes and all of the professors I have met so far have made a good effort to get to know me so I feel like a name and not a number. I don’t start my freshman year till August but all my visits to campus have been positive so far.
Work hard and Carlow will reward you! Great location; kind peers and professors. Also right next to Pitt and CMU so you can fullfill your partying needs.
I like how the professors are so nice to the students and helpful. I just finished my first year of the university and I liked most of it. I like how the school has tutors to help student in need. carlow is so great because most of the people the are nice it is not like high school were people are so childish. I love the school colors and how the buildings are set up. The is a science which makes things easier to find all the science classes. one thing I would like o see change at carlow is the food. I hate the food so much because it is just so tastless to me. Another thing I would like to see change at carlow is the for the school to give more scholarship or grants to students in need.
Carlow is a wonderful school. I feel that they genuinely do want you to succeed. I also feel that a lot of the people I have met here are some of my closest friends. Overall, I know that my program is quite difficult, but in a good way where it pushes you.
Carlow was an amazing experience for me. The small school feel in the middle of Oakland was the perfect mix. The professors are great and always willing to help. Everyone at the school is supportive and goal oriented. As Carlow grows as a university, I encourage anyone seeking a degree to check it out.
I really enjoyed my time at Carlow University. One of the things I liked the most was how personal everyone was; we all knew each other, and everyone said hello to one another in passing. Additionally, the professors all knew who you were, and I think that helped me personally in each class.
One thing I did not like was the parking. I understand that for a city school, parking is always going to be limited. However, I feel that since they charge so much per student for a parking permit, they could invest in a parking garage or something
Had a very good experience at Carlow during my four years of undergrad, that I even decided to come back to pursue my graduate degree here. Like that there is the option for traditional classes or online classes. The classes are small enough that professors are able to work one on one with you if you need it.
Carlow is a great for academics but it doesn't have the best diversity or student life. All of the staff and professors are great and helpful. My experience at Carlow has been okay but I do believe it could be improved.

I’ve been at Carlow for 4 years. The majority of the campus is located up on a hill. This university is great for students who are looking for smaller classes and want to build a good connection with their instructor and peers. There’s a lot of resources available as well when it comes to needing help with finding jobs, internships, and getting involved around the campus. The instructors at Carlow are great. They communicate well and are willing to assist you as need. The academics are good and well rounded, you learn about your major as well as, others that can connect to your major. The classes are used to help you in your academic career and personal life. The school is Catholic, and its morals, values are well respected and valuable. I would recommend Carlow to anyone who wants to be apart of a smaller campus and receive a great education at a private institute.
Thus far my experience at Carlow has been awesome. My teachers has been great. As long as i study and stay focused I get good grades. Thus, far I have no grades lower than a B-. I have learned so much, and anticipate to learn much more!
The education and environment at Carlow is average and comparable to most other campuses and institutions in the area.
