a freshmen and I love it here so far! My
classes have been challenging but not too intense and I've
had SO much fun. There is always something to do
in Oakland, whether it's shopping, partying, seeing a game, going
downtown or eating at one of the amazing restaurants.
If you're interested in philosophy, COME TO PITT. The program
is rated #2 in the country and definitely lives up
to its ranking! One of the main draws of Pitt
is it's diversity of courses. You can take just about
anything you want, from anthropology to geology to film and
medieval studies. Some professors are arrogant but overall I've loved
my professors! This is a large school so you have
to be proactive about your education and come talk to
your teachers and sit up front.
Our student union
is awesome and there are sooo many things to get
involved in. I also love the beautiful campus and how
it's got a very urban feel but also is cozy
My only qualms with the university is the
advising department, which is weak, and university-bureaucracy sucks! But overall
the school really does care about its students and I
feel like more than a number here. Come to Pitt
if you want an exciting, fast-paced and challenging for years!
