  • Shaylun from Rices Landing, PA
  • I am accepted here and planning to attend soon

    Teachers seem to always be willing to dig into their extra time for their students, even those that are extremely busy. Service to the school and the community are both important to the faculty and staff at Cal U, from the grounds keepers to the higher ups in old main. The food at the goldrush and other places around campus is great.

  • I am researching this school and have visited the campus

    I am from a smaller town so Cal-U is the perfect size for me. I like how the buses run into Pittsburgh so I can always go there if I get bored. I also love the set-up of the campus and the dorm rooms are very nice and spacious.
