Overall Experience: It is a very friendly campus and I have really enjoyed my time at it.

5 College Student

Overall Experience: I love the size of Pitt State. Most professors took the time to learn your name and learn about you.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Pittsburg State was the best college I could have chose. It's a good distance from home. It's a great size of campus, and the campus is beautiful. The classes aren't too big or too small. It's PERFECT.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: It is a bit of a headache to get everything sorted out, but it is well worth it.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: I have eaten clean until college so switching over the the processed food they serve wasn't easy. But it's okay now and the food isn't completely horrible all the time. I just wish we had a bigger variety of healthier foods.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms I live in are quite small so that's my biggest complaint. Otherwise I really like it here, it takes me 10 minutes to walk to my classes or to the dining hall. There is always something going on in the lobby or at least once a week the RA's have some sort of social get together that we have the option to join in on. During the housing process it was a little confusing to get registered and some of the questions they had didn't make sense but otherwise it's great!

Off-Campus Dining: The cost of most off-campus food options are pretty reasonable, while most offer student discounts with your Pitt State card. Most places you could walk to from campus or the dorms, and are reasonable when you come in about how long it takes to sit and be served.

3 College Freshman

Administration: The policies at school make the campus safer for everyone and make students strive to be more responsible.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: Parties usually happen Thursday-Saturday, and are pretty good. The parties provide security and a good way for students to interact and make new friends.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Dining hall doesn't have the greatest food, but they have a great variety. Also, they provide "steak cards" which give you four chances a semester to have fresh meat options cooked for you. Dining hall also has hours that meet most students needs, and your meal plan can be changed to the student's preference.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus is great, you're close to class and the dining hall. The buildings are fairly close, making it easy to get to classes on time and fit classes closer together. The resident assistants are friendly and make it easier to make friends with the other people on your floor.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: when looking for a house near campus, it might be hard, because there are several upperclassmen that are living off campus, and chances are, they aren't moving out of their house, so availability is limited, but its not impossible.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are quite a few places to eat off campus, i think the most popular place would be Lotus, a cheap chinese restaurant, located on broadway, about 5 minutes from campus, if that. A lot of people also like half price appetizers after 9:00 pm at applebees, and of course we just got a buffalo wild wings, so thats pretty popular as well. Anything other than those kind of restraints can be found in joplin, though

4 College Freshman

Administration: On campus, faculty, and residence assistants are pretty strict when it comes to things that might be harmful to yourself or others, and tend to enforce the policy of "quiet hours" to help keep everyones dorm life experience easy with trying to get their school work done.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: The financial aid process was really long and annoying, but i received more than enough money to cover my tuition and housing.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: Partying in Pitt is pretty fun, personally i have only done it a couple times. I would definitely recommend a house party over a frat party. they're much more laid back, and less people.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The dining hall has some decent food, alongside some pretty awful food. I would suggest looking at the menu before going, so you know what there is and if you're going to eat or not.
