What is your overall opinion of this school?

I don't know to be honest, I'm an upcoming freshman this year in 2017. I've heard from a lot of people that it's a great school to go to. I'm not entirely sure what i'm suppose to expect while my time there, but i remember my high school counselor telling me about the university and explain how it's a good place of study for my degree (Counseling Psychology) and I've had a little experience over there from the camp they held over at the football stadium and i've visited the indoor track too.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love the campus - it is nice and compact. The professors are all nice and available to help when you need it. Cafeteria food could definitely be better. I feel safe on campus, and there are stations all over the campus if you don't feel safe that you can call someone to escort you. I am not into sorority life, and that is just fine - there is plenty to do on campus without the added expense of being Greek. Professors are super nice and friendly and very willing to help if you need extra assistance. Living on campus is great, very central to all parts of the campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love that the professors seem to try and get to know they're students especially the advisors. I also love the fact that most of my classes had no more than 30 students sometimes half that, and my largest class was 100 students, and as a result I didn't feel like I got lost in the crowd. I would definitely recommend this college to anyone looking for a good 4-year college!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My first day at Pittsburg State University, I was so nervous. I didn’t know how my first day was going to go at a school with thousands of students. I LOVED it. It was the best first day ever. All my professors were so nice (even the tough ones). Still to this day, I haven’t had a professor that I thought didn’t care. All they care about is the students succeeding in their college careers. The office administration is always helpful. If I go to the wrong place by accident, they will direct me where to go in a kind manner. I do not have a single complaint about Pittsburg State University. I get to see my family often. It’s in a medium size city, which is fantastic because it’s not too big or too small. I give Pittsburg State University in Pittsburg Kansas a 5-star rate.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

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

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Pitt has great teachers and they are always available and has a lot of fun activities. Everyone is really nice and friendly and there is a club or organization for everyone and it is really easy to get involved. This is a easy place to call home. Once a Gorilla, always a Gorilla!!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

If I could pick one word to describe Pittsburg State University it would have to be; welcoming. The campus is small enough where you instantly feel at home but big enough to not make you feel as if you are small fish in a big pond. The professors add to this by truly caring about their students and their success; they teach students to be fully prepared for their futures.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

If I had to describe Pittsburg State University (no, there is no 'h' at the end; yes, it is located in Kansas) in one word, it would be 'traditional'. Some traditions that students partake in throughout the years are family day, homecoming week, Apple Day, game-days spent in Gorilla Village and Carnie Smith Stadium, and many more. The most important tradition that all students at Pittsburg State University have the opportunity to experience is ringing the bell at the Centennial Bell Tower, which occurs on the first day as a freshman (welcoming the new gorillas to campus) and on the last day as a graduating senior (a reminder to students that once a gorilla, always a gorilla). Pittsburg is a small town, but the campus is without-a-doubt loved and supported by the community members within the city. PSU offers more than 200 undergraduate and graduate academic programs as well as different opportunities to be involved on campus. General education courses have the largest number of students, and program courses vary in how many students are in each class. Although Pittsburg itself does not have vary many places to go for entertainment (bowling alley, movie theater [$3.50 for students!]), Pittsburg is within a 45 minute drive to Joplin, Missouri and Miami, Oklahoma, and a two hour drive to Kansas City; Branson, Missouri; Fayetteville, Arkansas; Tulsa, Oklahoma. Who could forget PSU's beloved Gus?! Gus is the mascot gorilla for Pittsburg State University and loved by all of his fans. He can be seen at all sporting events, randomly on campus, and big events happening on campus (he likes to take a TON of pictures too!). If you are looking to find a place to call your 'home away from home', Pittsburg State University is bound to be at the top of the list. #OnceAGorillaAlwaysAGorilla
