Yes, this school has tons of spirits and game days can be intense, but that's part of what makes Pitt so much fun. In terms of drinking and partying, I think we're like any other big university. There are definitely a lot of kids here that love to go get wasted, but there are SO many different types of people at Pitt you never feel like the crowd is homogeneous. If you're not into partying, there's tons of stuff to do and people to hang out with. Most students are friendly, smart and serious about school.
These stereotypes are not completely accurate. Yes, we have a lot of students who participate in sports, and I'm sure there are students who went to Pitt after being turned down by their first choice school. However, there are plenty of students attending Pitt for the academics and atmosphere. Pitt is full of a wide variety of students, I don't think this University could ever fit a certain type of mold.
