Degree: Natural Sciences
Graduation Year: 2012

The atmosphere of the university is very friendly and has a great urban feel. If you do your research on your professors you can take some really great classes that are engaging and fun. Don't get a meal plan and don't live in the dorms because it is not a great experience and you will pay a lot of money compared to what you get out of it.

Very expensive, too much online, tons of fees even for online classes where using the campus wasn't even an option since I lived 30 miles away.

Degree: Bioengineering and Biomedical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2005

The university is great. It has all the options that an undergraduate might be interested not only academically but socially. It's located in a great city. The engineering school offers a ton of support for students to do whatever they might wish whether it's research or industry experience. They have a plethora of clubs and support services. Although anyone's college experience is what they make it, Pitt offers a great opportunity to have not only a respected college degree but a great college experience.

Degree: Developmental and Child Psychology
Graduation Year: 2008

I thought the program could have used better development as it was a newer program at the University and I felt there could be more organization, mentors, and overall guidance for the students.

Degree: Interactive Media Design
Graduation Year: 2006

I felt that PITT had a good environment and was very conducive to learning. When I had first started as a Freshman, I had wanted to go into the field of medicine but quickly found out that it wasn't for me. I remember the counselors at PITT being helpful and guiding me towards a path that was more suited for my skill-set and I haven't turned back since.

Degree: Cultural Studies/Critical Theory and Analysis
Graduation Year: 2011

The University of Pittsburgh from day one will help you to better yourself and become a better person for our global community. Every student is encouraged to pursue their academic and social passion(s) and there are ample opportunities to gain valuable experience inside and outside the classroom. Professors as well as advisors are easily accessible and work with students to recognize their potential. I never felt like a number at the University of Pittsburgh because of the surprisingly small class sizes, easy access to academic and professional resources, and sharing the collective thought of inquiry. Lastly, having the city of Pittsburgh at my finger tips allowed for personal growth by way of exposure to several cultural and musical events.

Degree: Marketing/Marketing Management, General
Graduation Year: 2014

As a student at the University of Pittsburgh, I entered my freshman year with all of the dreams that most students do; to live in the Towers, attend a Panther football game at Heinz Field, and to finally be a part of the Oakland Zoo. It was my dream to attend Pitt, so when I graduated high school 11th in my class, top 5%, I had secured my spot at the university. I loved every minute of my Pitt experience, especially because I was paying top dollar for it. I received no scholarship money at all for my academics or extra curricular activities. I had higher SAT scores than some of the students who were from out of state and had received assistance. I also finished my first degree in 3 years and will finish my second in only one semester so that I don't have to continue to pay tuition. For this reason, I got a job as a teaching assistant in the business school to help pay for my books. So, if you plan to attend the University of Pittsburgh, start saving now!
