Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2018

The University of Pittsburgh is an excellent school. The instructors are very good, however their financial aid department could be a lot better taking in the fact that the school has one of the highest endowments in the country. But the school is extremely well in terms of research opportunities and the abundance of professionals you can work with. The school also has many programs for different people. In terms of ethnicity, the school is not that diverse however they provide many minority programs.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

Pitt is a great school if you are interested in research - it's the research hub of western PA. The social scene is a bit scary if you've never lived in a big city, and classes are huge until you declare your major and specialize. Overall, this was a good learning experience but I am glad I went there only in hindsight. The name "Pitt" has given me more opportunities than my actual experience there. It was only in my last years when I studied what I really liked and got to know professors on a higher level did I somewhat like my undergraduate experience.

Degree: Chemistry
Graduation Year: 2013

I am very satisfied with my chemistry degree and liberal arts education from the University of Pittsburgh. My professors were knowledgeable and approachable outside of class. The chemistry department offered ample opportunities for research and professional development. There are courses to gain teaching experience as a teaching assistant for undergraduate laboratory classes. The chemistry department allows for some flexibility in courses and offers multiple tracks to gain your degree: bioscience, business, materials, or ACS certification to name some. Introductory classes were large, upwards of 300 students, but upper level courses were smaller and more personal. Departmental advising was satisfactory, but I was sure to check my graduation requirements and if I was on track to graduate without issue. Amenities at the school were plentiful: quality dormitories, fitness centers, study locations, dining, and social activities. While the school is located in the city of Pittsburgh, it is more on the outskirts in a neighborhood called Oakland. While the campus is not isolated, its presence is certainly felt and most of the Oakland area of the city is dominated by the university. The school is very diverse, and I interacted with students, professors, and others from around the country and world. The campus police's presence was felt, and they did an excellent job keeping the students safe. Overall, my education, training, and professional skills gained at the college have benefited my career and development.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2014

The University of Pittsburgh is a rich, diverse institution nestled in the heart of Oakland, where students from all walks of life come together. I would highly recommend this college for other students because of its wide variety of degrees, professors, and extra-curricular. The greatest experience I had at Pitt was through the study abroad program. The university has programs in hundreds of places with every degree in mind. For my junior year, I studied abroad at the University of Alcala in Madrid, Spain. The program was excellently ran and professionally organized. They made the process easy so I could focus on my studies. My semester abroad was the best month of my life and I highly recommend it to any student interested in the University of Pittsburgh.

Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2012

Great campus. Lots of fun city living. Lots of parties and extracurricular activities. I had great undergrad experience as a history major. Good classes and professors. Excellent student health and good dining and housing options. The masters in the art of teaching program, however, was a joke. Very disorganized and felt like it was just an exchange of money for a degree, not based on learning or grades earned.

Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2007

Pitt was good to me and I'm glad I went there. I think my degree is worth more now than it was when I graduated, because the school has done a good job of recruiting competitive students and supporting those students who are focused and driven.
