Local Area: Pittsburg has a great small town feel. The area is family friendly with lots of parks, trails, and a pool. Many of the college students like to stay throughout the summer because it's a great mixture of rural and urban. There is always something to do, from fairs to college planned events.

3 College Freshman

Local Area: The local area is decent. There isn't much to do right here in town, but Joplin is only half an hour away and they have many things for students to do.

3 College Junior

Local Area: Most students say there is nothing to do but drink in Pitt. Its good for school and lots of potential jobs after graduation but it is not the most exciting place to live.

3 College Freshman

Local Area: Its a small town and their a small mall here and theater. But we are also thirty minutes away from Joplin Missouri.
