4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: There is plenty of charm to go around. There is a perfect mix of small, home grown people and "big city" people. That being said, there are not a ton of options for activities off campus. Most activities involve drinking is one way or another. I wish that there were more options.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Pittsburg is a city built around a college. Everyone loves their Pitt State Gorillas, that is what brings everyone together.

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: The atmosphere is quiet. While I may be okay with this, I have heard a lot of my friends who are not happy to stay. This atmosphere gives you time to develop yourself and it is quiet enough to raise your kids. Generally it can become boring, but it is only 2 hours away from some major cities, and central on the American map.

Local Atmosphere: I love this small town

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: There's not much to do in Pittsburg. Its definitely not a destination spot, but the city of joplin is only a short drive away.
