4 College Senior

Local Area: I think Pittsburgh is an excellent transition city for someone who wants to move to a bigger and busier city after graduation. It prepares you for the busy urban lifestyle to a certain extent; using public transportation, however the downtown hours to most shopping and convenience stores are not the most convenient. However, museums, attractions, activities, cultural events, safety and shopping are excellent.

2 College Junior

Local Area: Downtown Pittsburgh is a business town, so almost everything closes around 5 PM and isnt open on the weekends. You have to leave the city to find places and things that are still open at night.
