I genuinely love Pitt State. It's a nice campus with great professors and classes. The student body is also very nice and you always are made at home. The dining hall has a lot of work to do though, it's not great. But the on-campus housing isn't too bad. The tuition is also very cheap and affordable.
Pitt State is a very nice school with a pretty campus and professors that are always helpful. They have several measures in place to make sure the campus is safe and their facilities are neat and clean. Overall, I would attend here for another four years.
I used to attend Pittsburg State University as a freshmen, and although I thought tha campus was okay, I still felt like it was unfit for me. The cafeteria food is average to ehh, failing inspection with 11 violations. The dorms could also improve as they are old buildings
Love the availability of places to go to do homework and the atmosphere of the campus and students. I love that the faculty is always willing to tell you more about their field and how to get into it if the student wants. It is a beautiful campus and everyone is nice.

Kali, you are going to do well as long as you are confident. Remember, a real friend will not expect more than time spent with you, and a "man" in college is probably still a boy that is getting money from loans or parents. Do not give them any power over your life. This is YOUR time. If you try to help everyone else fill the holes in their lives, you are bound to fall into one of them and not be able to achieve your goals.
Get a job while you get your Bachelor's degree. You will meet people this way and not have to become dependent on a man. Do not stop there. You will be secretly ashamed if you stop. Get your Master's degree! You have plenty of time. It will be a great experience. Lastly, do not get hidden from the world. You have a lot to learn about it before it can start learing from you. Are you excited? You should be!
Our school is able to offer small class room sizes that enable students to delve deeper into their studies. This also helps aid discussions in class, which I feel really help the learning process.
Pittsburg State University is a school with small classes where the professors can work with you on a personal one on one level.
I wish I would have had more money.
This is not the best place for people who don't enjoy partying. I suppose many colleges are that way though. People who aren't alright with not having very much diversity probably shouldn't come here either.
My classmates are eager to learn yet many times unwilling to put forth the necessary effort to do so.
There are only a few things that I think is wrong with Pittsburg State University. The worst thing about my school is the distance between some of the buildings. This makes it hard to get to some of the classes on time. However, most of the teachers are willing to excuse your tardiness if you inform them the first day about your situation. This is the worst thing about the school.
I would say that Pittsburg State is mostly known for all the partying that goes on. Also our school is known for our football, and i'm sure our academic success.
PSU is so fun and friendly. They have a great international student program and teachers that really care. The campus is small and beautiful. I always felt comfortable there. It is a fun school. I really miss it.
I think all kinds of people should attend this school.
I can't think of anything that is truely frustrating. My school is very diverse, involved, and fun.
The campus is big enough to see and meet different people each day but small enough to see all your friends while walking to classes. When you are in a class you don't feel left out or invisible, the teachers notices you. I absolutely love the small class sizes,because the teachers know your name and they will help you when you are in need.
for the most part. a good solid 70 percent of the student population party on a regular basis. Pittsburg State is located in southeastern Kansas so there is a far share of rednecks.
My favorite classes are my core automotice classes. Students to study on a regular basis. The most unique class i have taken is a history class on the state of Kansas. The academic requirements are the same with the other public universities in Kansas Pitt State has one of the best automotive programs in the nation.
Pitt State has 6 fraternities and 3 sororities. Stydents have the opporutity to be apart of a student organization. I met my closest friends in class. Students in their dorm room do leave there door open. Athletes blend in with the rest of the student population. The Dating scene is typical for a college. if i was up on a tuesday morning, i would be study'n or asleep. People party on Wednesday, friday and saturday, and once in a while on a thursday. My last weekend in Pittsburg, there was a block party with about 1000 people.
Anothing but partiers and rednecks
The best thing about Pittsburg state is that the student population are really close. Outside of class i don't spend much time on campus exept of sporting events. The administration is great. Pittsburg, Kansas is a college toen, the student population makes up half of the cities population.
