After University of Pittsburgh

I feel that my college has provided me with an array of resources that are preparing me for my future and career. So far I have not been entirely impressed with the faculty of my school. The nursing specific classes are engaging and taught by passionate people, but my general education courses are poorly taught with little instruction. I feel that I do not learn in those classes, but rather struggle to teach myself the material and try my hardest to complete all the work assigned for each class. I have struggled to find balance between everything, but the university doesn't provide me with the means to easily find that balance.

I am still a freshman who has begun the college experience less than a month ago but I am confident enough to say that it has been a nice experience. The students are overall friendly and the teachers are very approachable, truly hoping for their students to succeed.

If you take the time to join clubs and organizations and go talk to your professor after class it will make your experience so much better! As a senior I cannot walk across campus without seeing at least 5 people I know. We have a small campus, but we also have the entire city of Pittsburgh to explore as well. I'm just as happy hanging out in Oakland as I am exploring a new neighborhood or attending an event downtown. The opportunities are there, you just have to ask!
