CMU is located in the heart of Pittsburgh. When you step off campus you see the city. That isn't necessarily a bad thing. There are many parts of the city that are quite scenic (its one of the reasons Batman was filmed here), and the architecture around Pittsburgh differs wildly depending on where you go. Oakland, the area CMU is closest too, isn't that impressive in my opinion (feels a little dingy to me, restaurants clearly cater to the college students, and kind of crowded on weekend nights) but there are other students that really enjoy it. And if you are like me and prefer other areas, they aren't hard to get to. Each neighborhood really has its own feel. Good restaurants, movies, and plays are not hard to find and attend.
