What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have seriously enjoyed my time at the University of Pittsburgh and I am looking forward to my next three years there. I have found all of my classes to be very interesting and the professors are usually accessible. There is a wide range of extra-curricular activities to participate in and plenty of ways to get involved on campus. I have made some of my closet friends through Pitt and I wouldn't trade my experience here for anything.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Pittsburgh is a wonderful school for anyone who is interested in a safe haven in an urban environment. Pitt is in a neighborhood just outside of the metropolitan limits of Pittsburgh, a small city in western Pennsylvania. Therefore, it keeps that urban feel while also having green space to enjoy outdoor activities, as opposed to a campus composed of buildings and sidewalks. The housing facilities are typical of a college campus. However, there are new ones that have been built that exceed typical expectations. They are bigger rooms with better amenities, such as a flat screen TV in every room. The food on campus cannot be beat. With multiple dining locations all throughout campus, there is always something that can satisfy anyone's craving. Additionally, one of the major roads that runs through the campus, Forbes avenue, is chock full of delicious restaurants. The academics are also comparable to many other schools in the country. The classes are taught by top professors doing groundbreaking research in their fields. Class discussions are always intellectual and compelling. The University of Pittsburgh is especially attractive to those trying to enter the healthcare field. Pittsburgh is a top city in medical research, with its medical center, UPMC, and medical school, Pittsburgh can be considered an epicenter for medicine. Additionally, its nursing school is ranked top five in the nation. The University of Pittsburgh is definitely a top school in the eastern United States. My experience there was nothing short of excellent. I would recommend it to anyone apply to post-secondary school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really like Pitt a lot, although to be honest, I dislike the sports culture. Don't get me wrong, a lot of people here love it, but it just personally isn't really my thing. That being said, I do love it here! I think that all sorts of people will find their place here, whether they're quiet and nerdy, creative, or sports-oriented, and that is pretty special for a campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I was a little hesitant to apply to Pitt because it was far from home and I grew up in a small town. However, I decided to get out of my comfort zone and hail to Pitt and I never looked back after. The academics are challenging but there are many resources to help guide you and the friendships you make last a lifetime.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a great environment tucked in the middle of the city of Pittsburgh. There is always lots to do and campus activities are always available! It's a welcoming community and as a graduate student I still feel involved in the campus! I would not pick another place to go for my graduate education.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Pitt is a big school, but not huge. As a result, you're afforded lots of opportunities with the ability to form smaller circles within campus. If you're premed, Pitt is THE place to go, but even if you're not, like me, programs are rigorous and receive lots of funding. Pitt is one of the biggest national scholarship-producing schools in the country, so if that's important for you, know that there's a dedicated Honors College staff to help you succeed. Overall, I have a great opinion of this school. I'm about to complete my freshman year, and really the only complaints I have are things that I could have done differently. Pitt is generous with its financial aid, and is a great option if you want a good mix of things to do and quiet spots to chill!

The university is very nice and large located in area around by shop and store you can drop by when you are hungry after class. You can also met a lot of nice and friendly people all over the world who are willing to help you out when you need it. The staff member and very helpful and the service are very good.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

University of Pittsburgh as a college is an amazing institution. They provide students with exceptional opportunities ranging from academic support to de-stressing. Being such a big institution, University of Pittsburgh needs to provide its students with a personalized academic plan, which it successfully strives to do. Having classes sometimes with as many as 300 students, I have never felt that I have received adequate attention in regards to my education. There have always been professors, teaching assistants, tutors, and students available for support. However, no institution can be perfect. Especially being such a big institution, there is bound to be some room for improvement. Although I felt my academics was handled properly, I do believe this college can do more to help students adjust to college outside of the classroom. Having support groups, initiating required social events, and having a mentoring system, University of Pittsburgh can do more to ensure that students are both successful inside and outside the classroom. Overall this institution is a wonderful place for students to work towards achieving their dreams! I know it has definitely helped me towards achieving mine!

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.
