University of Pittsburgh- Johnstown has a beautiful campus, great housing, and a perfect environment for studying and helping students thrive. The professors are usually very helpful and encouraging. Students can involve themselves in a variety of extracurricular activities, clubs and organizations, which really help them prepare themselves for the real world. The university faculty and staff are very nice and respectful and are always willing to help students with whatever they might need. Overall, the school is pretty great, however, I personally feel like they can improve on the rules and regulations imposed on the students in order to maintain safety and order.
Review University of Pittsburgh - Johnstown
I really like that our class sizes are small and allows these opportunities to grow close to my professors, I truly believe it makes me have a better education. The campus itself is beautiful and UPJ keeps it well maintained during all the seasons. They are constantly updating the campus from the Residence Halls all the way the academic buildings. There is also a lot of things to do on our campus and those who are bored aren't coming out of the rooms often enough. From clubs, to Greek life, to clubs that support your interests . Also, we have virtual reality, escape rooms, comedians, concerts, therapy dogs, programs ran by clubs, game night, rail jams, and so much more that I can't go on. True it's a smaller campus but that lets you grow close to those around you and make you feel a sense of community; but it is big enough that I guarantee that you will always be meeting new people.
The campus at UPJ is aesthetically beautiful. The trees and buildings are very welcoming. The small stature of the campus makes it very easy to find all your classes and there is no need to worry about being late to class because of traffic. Also, the small community enables the student to meet a lot of students and you feel like you basically get to know everyone, especially if you are involved on campus or part of Greek life.

The food is horrible! This year it seems to be at an all time low.
