3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Some parts of Pittsburg are sketchy but I like the atmosphere for the most part.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Small town feel. Plenty of shops to get what you need. Lots of different food choices. I like the atmosphere.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: The town is small but has a lot to offer, plus there is a larger city within a thirty minute drive. The sports is all about the school but we have some very good sports and they are usually large events. Especially football and basketball.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: There could be more shopping in town

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: The atmosphere of Pittsburg State is one of the main reasons I transferred here. It is small, near a "old town," and everyone is super friendly.
