" Its a small university but the teachers are great, they make sure that you are actually learning and you're just a number in their classroom. They offer accelerated masters courses while studying in your undergrad, which means once you graduate with your bachelors you can go right into finishing a masters degree and be done in half the time. The campus is right in oakland, so there are a lot of food options and there are hospitals everywhere. Great for nursing, bio, and research students. "

" Carlow is a very small school which I loved. The facility in my department all knew me by name and beyond by the time I left undergraduate. I would get emails from professors checking in asking if I was okay because I wasn't in class and they were concerned. It's that kind of personal connection that made me fall in love with the university. I always felt safe approaching professors about any concerns and honestly, my advisor became like a second mom to me and my friends. The major downsides to the university though are 1. they are a major nursing school. That's their biggest major and selling point so a lot of focus and energy goes into supporting that major compared to the others, which sucked for some of my friends who were in the arts (graphic design, etc.). Psychology didn't suffer but a bulk of the students are there for nursing. 2. While being a small campus is really nice a lot of the students are commuters. Only about 400 students can live on campus and the rest commute. So during the evenings or even on weekends, the campus can feel pretty empty because students would be home or (for students that maybe live on campus but live close by) would travel home for the weekends. Overall, I loved attending Carlow. There were downsides to being there that I experienced over the years but I loved it enough that currently I'm attending their Masters program. Every campus has it's faults but I think the benefits of Carlow outweigh the downsides by a long shot. "

" Carlow is a great school! The community is great and the campus is small which I love! The professors have always been very helpful and always respond to you very quickly. The famous has a lot to offer with activities, you just have to become involved. "

" Due to COVID, many extra things to do on campus were unavailable. I did however get to see the campus briefly about a month before the shut down and there were so many different activities for anyone and everyone. The program I'm in is still pretty new butt the faculty hit the ground running! "

" I'm a graduate student attending an all-online program. All of the administration and staff have been very supportive in all areas of need: tech help, writing center, professors, etc. I have been especially impressed by their Disability Services Office who have gone above and beyond to help me with what I need. I highly recommend Carlow to everyone! "
