5 College Junior

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There are many programs at Pitt that inform students about the sexual assault statistics in the United States and the dangerous effects of alcohol. Also, there are blue lights around campus and many police officers are always around the city in order to make the students feel safe at all hours.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: So many different courses are offered at Pitt, and although some of the professors are dull or underprepared, most are excellent. The courses are difficult but help students learn so much about their field of study. Classes can be big (up to 400 people), but recitations help students feel more comfortable about asking questions.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Pitt's career center is one of the best in the nation, and I am proud to say I have many resources in helping me find a job after college. The alumni networks are abundant and many internships are offered solely to Pitt students.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The freshman dorms are small but the community in the dorms is great and everyone is always extremely nice. It is relatively clean and easy to navigate and I'm enjoying my first year experience in my Residence Hall.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Overall, students agree that they wouldn't trade their Pitt experience for anything. As with most decisions, there are a lot of things to consider. If you don't like living in a city environment, Pittsburgh may not be the place for you. While it doesn't have the feel of New York of Philadelphia, the area is definitely urban. Also, Pitt is a large school—you're in for some big lecture classes and a somewhat overwhelming campus during the first year or so. Everything will seem to get smaller after you've been around awhile, though. Weather can be a concern if you're used to a warmer climate—snow, rain, and wind rule Pittsburgh winters. This is something that you can easily get used to though, unless you're a diehard warm weather fan.

What Pitt does offer is high-caliber academics, plenty of student organizations, and countless opportunities, such as study abroad, cultural activities, and sports. If you're willing to become active on campus, there's a lot more to Pitt than meets the eye. The University's location can also be a great advantage—Pittsburgh itself is a great city that is a positive environment for students to live and learn in, thanks in part to the city being home to a number of colleges and universities. The social scene is always jumping, locals are friendly, and there's always something to do if you explore a little. The best idea is to visit and try to get a feel for the area. You can get the same quality education at Pitt that can be found in many smaller, expensive schools, but here you'll pay less to have a vibrant city right at your doorstep.
