4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: I wish we talked more

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Transportation is easy to get around as well as shopping.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Pittsburgh is great. I have seen sooo much theatre since I have been here. There are a ton of other colleges around here

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Pittsburgh has cleaned up a lot, but the remaining bad sides to the city are much worse than before.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: It's right in downtown Pittsburgh- there's usually a decent amount to do, but everything downtown closes at 7 or 8 each night, which means students usually have to go to Oakland or Southside to party at night.
