Pitt is an excellent size: large enough for each student to find their niche and yet small enough that you can't walk a block without running into someone you know. The city campus provides endless opportunities for non- school activities. There are plenty of delicious restaurants, great shopping, and countless bars. Your student ID gets you free access to the bus system making it very easy to get from place to place and not being confined to the campus grounds.
The weather tends to be dreary and rainy which can get old. Also, as an out of state student, I did not find job opportunities through the Career Services tools relevant to my home area.
Yes, I loved every second of Pitt. There are amazing people here and each one creates their own unique experience. I've made friends I'll keep in touch with forever and memories I wouldn't trade for anything.
