Point Park University Reviews
Point Park seems like a great school. Since I live in the Pittsburgh area, it is located conveniently downtown by Market Square. There is accessible public transportation. I can catch the bus from home straight to school and back. The college offers a variety of majors within the arts, business, education, culinary, and the sciences. I am a science major attending the school so I had to tour the campus. I love the closeness of study halls and the small classes. The campus is diverse and offers a variety of sport activities. I am excited for a great experience at Point Park!
Very displeased with the dance conservatory! My daughter got injured with a knee injury and no physical therapy was provided! Didn't call or anything! She has to wait to heal so she can get back dancing. Now she sits in classes for hours a day! She enjoys the program because of friends who attended before her (juniors. She's a sophomore) but after this, the faculty left a bad taste in my mouth.
Point Park offers students large financial aid packages, a spotlessly clean environment, and a safe community protected by graduates of the police academy and secured .buildongs. Additionally, the campus is well designed, including elevators and ramps for physically challenged students. While the curriculum is quite diverse, the administration offers numerous organizations and counseling to ensure the success of the student body at the university.
