What is your overall opinion of this school?

My time at the University of Pittsburgh is near and dear to my heart. I have made close friendships, had unforgettable experiences, and have valued my education. However, if you are looking for a very campus feel, this is not the school for you. Pitt is lacking in school spirit.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am very happy that I attend the University of Pittsburgh. At the Pittsburgh campus, I feel there is a strong sense of community; I have been away from campus, like the airport or back home in Chicago, and if people see me wearing my Pitt sweatshirt, they immediately shout, "Hail 2 Pitt!". This has to be my favorite aspect of my college, it is a community in Oakland and out. I always feel safe on my campus and know that the Pitt Police are not far away. As for sports, we are a very big football university. We play at Heinz Field, the same field where the Steelers play, and the shuttles are always filled to capacity. While football is our biggest sport, students also attend basketball, soccer, baseball, and volleyball regularly. Besides sports, there are multiple opportunities to get involved in theater, singing, and dancing groups. Although, I do wish these activities were advertised more; I feel few people know about these opportunities. As for academics, I feel Pitt has challenging courses in all schools. I can speak for the School of Education, and I feel I am being taught by the best professors. They are always willing to meet outside of class if needed, and they always come into class with such enthusiasm. They truly are passionate about teaching and want their students to succeed. Overall, I am very content at the University of Pittsburgh. I feel I am being given the tools I need to succeed in my job and in my life. Hail 2 Pitt!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I absolutely love the school. I cannot think of anything I would change. I have made some of my best friends while here, along with some of the most academically challenging classes I have ever taken. The school has a lot to offer, socially and academically.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Pitt offers diverse coursework and a variety of organizations, however classes outside of the STEM fields lack competent professors or adequate funding, leaving a lot to be desired. Most students are friendly and approachable, but many are unwilling to communicate outside of classroom discussion. Some instructors are standoff-ish, although there are the selected, special few who deeply care about your academic and social success.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall a great school with many opportunities, especially being close to such a big city. You can get a great education here, especially for science/STEM majors. The school has many fairs and events to help you get started with extracurriculars, internships, research, and finding a career for post-grad. The only complaint I have is that the food quality is not too great and the housing is not the best in some of the dorms. It is very expensive to live on campus for what you are getting so after freshman year it is best to move off campus to save money.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Pittsburgh-Pittsburgh Campus is a very good school and I love being a student there. I do feel like there was a considerable transition period, but Pitt is well-prepared for that with great Resident Assistants and great support staff, including groups that get students in touch with other students who are homesick or are struggling to adjust to college. The faculty and the professors are top-notch, and I am about to start a research internship that I would not have gotten without the help of my professors. There is a big focus on STEM, and most of my friends are pre-med students or engineers. There are fewer opportunities for liberal arts majors, but I have been able to stand out in a smaller program (Urban Studies is much smaller than the Biology department). There is a lot of Pitt pride in students, and I see almost everyone wearing Pitt gear everyday. Greek life is not a huge part of Pitt. It is there if you want that, but if you don't want to be involved, you will never notice that it is there. Hail to Pitt!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love all of the opportunities that are available at the University of Pittsburgh. Students are able to explore the city of Pittsburgh and other surrounding communities by riding fare free with their Panther Cards. In my experience, the students come from diverse backgrounds and are friendly. Although the food on campus is not ideal, there are spots to grab good food near campus!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I greatly enjoy the campus and the people. Its all great. The class sizes are good. There are big classes and there are small classes so depending on your major, you might have a big class or a small class. The housing is also pretty good. Most of the people are really friendly, and the RA's are great.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Pitt tremendously! As a son of Pitt Alumni, Pittsburgh has always had a sacred place in my heart and I have always regarded it as a second home, and I am even considering living here post-college. Although the food is subpar at best, the academic aspect is phenomenal. I feel like I am getting a top-notch education and the extracirriculars and club opportunities are A-plus-plus.
