| I ABSOLUTLY love the University of Pittsburgh. As a freshman, i came from a small town and was unsure about such a large campus. Yes, a lot of students go to Pitt, but it doesnt feel nearly as large as it sounds. I lived in towers. Such a positive experience! I felt like i knew the entire freshman class. Everyone was so friendly and it was a great way to meet new friends. There are a lot of activities and clubs on campus for anyone who wants to participate. Those of you who say there is no social life have a serious problem. The campus is absolutly beautiful, with Schenley park so close! The food isnt so hot, thats my only complaint. Classes are difficult (as they should be in college) but every professor i had was very approachable and helpful! The city is beautiful! The football games are a blast to go to! Please consider Pitt! Pitt is the shit! |

| After finishing my freshman year at Pitt, I can truly say that my experience thus far has been great. Although it took a semester to adjust, after that, everything seemed to fall into place. Aside from having the City of Pittsburgh as your backyard, there are many things to do in and around Oakland. Whether you want to see an improv show, or hit the bars, it has it all. Academically, I've been amazed at the amount of resources that Pitt offers it students; you just have to go out and seek them! |

| As many universities, it has its strong points and its weak points. However, the school, on a whole, is improving to the point where many of the 'weak' points are starting to turn in much better directions.|
This is a fantastic university, especially for those who look to an education as a way of learning, and not just a way to get to the next level.
This is particularly true for the engineering school, which is seeing a growth in the number of applicants, the average SAT score, and the number of faculty. Although the university is planning on expanding the number of engineering students attending, the student to teacher ratio is expected to stay the same thanks to the university taking time to select new professors.
This school has abundant activities, over 350 student organizations to choose from. There is a program that grants FREE tickets to arts events in the city, and not cheap ones at that. Often you'll find yourself sitting in a seat at the symphony that you would have paid $35 for, plus they provide cake and sometimes dinner.
Pitt is headed in a positive direction, and I am proud to be a member of this community. I am learning more, and becoming more than i thought would be possible. I love my school, I love its atmosphere. There was NO better school for me out there. Hail to Pitt.
