So far, in my two years at Pittsburg State they have been filled with tears, good and bad but through that I have found my family. I am glad I choose Pitt State because without this college I wouldn't have been my forever friends.

I love it. I grew up in a very small town and although Pittsburg is much larger, I still get that small town feel at Pitt State
