5 College Freshman

Local Area: Oakland and Pittsburgh in general offers a HUGE variety of activities. There are a TON of things to do near campus and a variety of busses that go throughout the entire Pittsburgh area. You can get to anywhere. Also, there are a lot of small businesses and specialty shops.

3 College Junior

Local Area: The University is located in Oakland which is pretty much college town. There are 2 other major universities nearby. Thrusday night is the best night to go out in Oakland, seeing most students from the Universities hangout down in all the resturants and go to surrounding areas.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: There is plenty to do. The campus is surrounded by shopping, restaurants, and museums. It is five minutes from downtown. There is also a larger university nearby.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: Pittsburgh is a great city, yes there are some problems, but what city doesn't have its issues. Pittsburgh is a great city to start college in.

3 College Freshman

Local Area: I'm pretty familiar with the Pittsburgh area because I grew up there. I'm going to be a freshman this upcoming fall and I'm going to be a Nursing Major. I'm very excited and love how friendly everyone is on the campus! It will also be fun to go around to the different shops in the Oakland area with friends.
