University of Pittsburgh - Johnstown Reviews
The professors are passionate about their professions and are extremely helpful to students. Additionally, the professors go above and beyond to help students succeed. Overall, the campus is safe. I have always been a commuter therefore, I cannot comment on the housing. However, I frequently eat lunch on campus and it is good for a college campus. The coffee shop in Blackington is great!
UPJ has a beautiful campus. My son loved it there. I’m returning to school as an older adult. I was encouraged by the administration where I sub to return to school for my certification. I have multiple health problems which I was assured would not be an issue. My grades have been repeatedly penalized for these difficulties I experience from my health problems. Even when I explain my health problems, they don’t want to accommodate me. I don’t feel that I should need to fill out stacks of papers to be able to eat a piece of candy or gum when my blood sugar drops, nor can I suddenly see better because I’m told I need to find a way to see better. At my job I’m constantly told what a great job I do . I am doing the same things at school as I do on my job but I’m penalized for disabilities. If you are a healthy young person and going into engineering it might be a good school for you . If you are going into education or are older, or have health problems, run!
The University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown is a very relaxed, yet engaging campus. The people and staff are welcoming, helpful, and hard working. The campus is comforting with its acres of woods surrounding it, and safe. Having various clubs and activities going on around campus, there is no excuse for having nothing to do. The services offered here are great, ranging from career assistance, tutoring, to health and fitness. My favorite part about the campus, and also the first thing I noticed was the many critters running around. We are accompanied by cute squirrels, chipmunks, birds, etc. If you are trying to get away from the city and home, the Johnstown campus is the perfect fit. Pitt Johnstown is a great place to start making memories and building your future!
