5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I think that the campus police are very nice and approachable. They truly care about us, I had an experience where another student crashed into my car and the officers were very helpful with filling out a report.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I think that UPJ really makes all their students feel welcome and give them plenty of activities to participate in.

Campus Housing: I love the fact that the dorms have their own bathrooms. However, the dorm rules are often not enforced by the RA's therefore making a challenging work environment.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I think that for the students involved Greek Life is pretty good on campus. But as someone who isn't involved I can't speak on it much.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: I think that the athletics are really awesome. They have an awesome gym with a huge rock wall and a pool thats open to all students.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love this school and would recommend it to anyone!

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus all the time. They have emergency buttons all through the campus that will have you in contact with the campus police right away. So you are always very safe!

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There is a lot of great professors at UPJ and they are always willing to help if you are struggling!

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: This school is great because even though it is a branch campus of Pitt main you still get a degree that will say Pitt main

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I just had my first year in college so I was in the freshman dorms. They were kind of small but they were nice. They did an excellent job matching me and my roommate together. Also it was very easy to get the house we desired for next year!

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: There are many different Greek housing opportunities available all throughout the campus. The Greeks are all very friendly as well.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The athletics are very good at school. A lot of people will attend the games. The school will often give away a lot of free stuff at the games such as tshirts!

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It love the university of Pittsburgh at Johnstown. It's very small and so are the classes so you get the attention you need in each class. Also all the professors know you by name which is very nice. The classes are all very interesting as well.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Love it here at UPJ. Couldn't ask for a better school. Professor are willing to help you with anything, wether it be class or career related and they can give you their past experiences as well.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Willing to help you with anything and very easy to talk to them.

2 College Junior

Campus Housing: Personally on campus was the worst for housing. Overpriced and very small for what you are paying for.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life was slowly been going away here on campus.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Nice facilities to use, but equipment is kinda hard to get a hold of when there is a lot of people.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Love the class size. Our class size is relatively small for being a branch campus, on average of 20-25 students per teacher. Quiet campus not busy like most main campuses. Experience has been great here!

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: good just to expensive for a 12 foot by 12 foot room

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I like college i do not mind it but i just wish my school was more involved on campus. a lot of students are commuters and go home on the weekends because there is not much to do on campus.

2 College Junior

Greek Life: A good number of Greeks are nice to me. I was invited to go to one tonight, but I kept on thinking of the prom scene from Carrie, where she gets pig blood dumped on her. I don't really trust Greeks. I don't trust big groups of people who spend a lot of time together. Seems more like a cult.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Sports aren't as important as athletics, they are two separate things here. You'll always see people using the Wellness Center gym or the gym in their residence, but there are more gym rats here than actual jocks.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Like a concert, the worst thing about the school are the people you're attending it with. The students are either dissatisfied kids from middle class homes in urban areas (often times sent her by Pitt main after seeking Oakland admission), rednecks working towards an engineering degree, socially inept, or people who strongly benefit from the 90% acceptance rate. I will say it is an improvement to my rural home, but I am happiest in the company of my professors or my fellow employees in campus food services.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Pitt–Johnstown is an excellent school for the student that likes the small-town feel. A beautiful oasis in a small and poverty-stricken city, students enjoy the perks of fresh air, green scenery, and personal attention from instructors. Most of the classrooms are small like the ones at your high school; only a few are located in large lecture halls.  Also, despite the remote location, the Galleria mall and Wal-Mart are each a short drive or bus ride away.

That being said, Pitt–Johnstown might not be an excellent choice for students who wish to play popular varsity sports like football (which is nonexistent at UPJ), have a large selection of activities to choose from, or who wish to have a wide range of major options. Most of the students at UPJ major in education, and a large percentage of the rest consists of computer science or engineering majors. Those who do not enjoy a quiet atmosphere or a relatively homogeneous student population would be best off applying to a larger school such as the University of Pittsburgh's main campus. But Pitt–Johnstown is a good option for those who feel the opposite, and for those financially struggling Johnstown residents who want to attend a decent four-year college but cannot afford to dorm at a far-off campus.
