What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Carlow College

It's a relatively new neighborhood.My favorite business is Publix.The neighborhood is mixed business/residential.The Dew Drop Inn,KFC,Applebees

We are in an residemdential area with just enough distance from the urban areas. There is a shoping center within one mole

It is a retired golf community as set up. Needs walkable shopping and dining for families. Lots of room to walk, bike, run, or play golf.

I like to gather with my family at home and bake our favorite dishes and watch a film that we feel thrill to watch

quiet and diverse, between two other cities you can drive to for a different scene. food is amazing, schools are near by. Fridays, target, terra luna, margaritas

The area it self is what I love about it I am literally so close to everything that I need I am going to continue you typing because you do not like that I didn't write enough here

All About

Living in Carlow College, PA

In December of 1843, a group of the Sisters of Mercy from Carlow, Ireland, arrived in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where they purchased the 14-acres that is now known as Carlow College. Originially a women's college, the school has hung on to much of its heritage, but has made decades of developments to improve student living at the institution. Since its early days, Carlow has expanded into three campuses, become coeducational and expanded its academic buildings and student housing. In 2004, the school achieved university status, and about 500 graduate students join nearly 2,000 undergraduates in sustaining a close community in both dormitories and off campus housing.

Student housing is available at and around Carlow University's three campuses in Oakland, Cranberry and Greensburg. Currently, the student body is only seven percent men, though the school is taking steps to attract more male applicants. For example, in 2012, the university will begin a men's cross country team, the first male sport offered at the school. Academically, the school is structured around the College of Arts and Sciences, College of Professional Studies and the Graduate School. To suit the wide variety of interests that students proclaim, Carlow offers programs in many departments, including the Humanities, Natural Sciences, Mathematics, Management, Nursing, Education and Social Change.

Off campus housing in the school's community offers students independence as they explore and make a home of the area. Forbes Avenue, along the east side of campus, is an ideal place for a university apartment, offering a stretch of local hubs, including Pamela's, which is famous for its pancakes and has even served President Obama.
