WHAT I LIKED

For those interested in getting a taste of city life, Point Park University is an excellent choice. You will certainly enjoy your educational experience as you will have access to well-trained instructors and faculty members who are there to support you. Pittsburgh also boasts an excellent public transportation system, making it simple to travel between neighborhoods and campus.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Some of the structures at Point Park are antiquated, and the art programs are given preferential treatment. While I feel Point Park provides excellent education, it is first and foremost a dance school.
