Very Pleased

"The school was great to work with from application to graduation. They communicated quickly and was responsive to any needs that I had. Using Canvas was a good platform and was easy to navigate. My one suggestion for improvement is the graduation ceremony. It's pretty much a walkthrough with where you lineup elsewhere, walk the stage, and go out another door. That's it. I recommend more of a ceremony."

  • Degree: Early Childhood Education
"Do not recommend going into Early Childhood Education, the pre-k practicum is a joke and you will not learn much. I would stick to elementary education at Pitt or find a different school for early childhood programs. You will have better luck learning on Pinterest and in a real classroom"

"I would highly recommend Pittsburg State University to anyone who is seeking an MBA. The professors are excellent. While I did find this program quite challenging at times, it is definitely worth the investment. Whether you are majoring in international business, human resources, or accounting I would suggest the school."

  • Degree: Exercise Science
"Pittsburg State University is a fantastic mid-sized institution committed to developing it's students into the most effective professionals in the area. Known for it's College of Education, Nursing, and Arts and Sciences, PSU is a name on a resume that is meaningful to employers. The exercise science, bio/pre-med, psychology, and nursing programs provide premium education with a reputation for excellence. The class sizes at PSU are small, allowing instructors to get to know each student personally. Instructors care about student success and work to help each student as they seek their new identity as a professional. This "extra mile" creates a beautiful and goal oriented vibe around the college that can be felt as soon as you step on campus. It was these caring instructors and peers that helped push me towards graduation and reminded me of my goals when times got hard. I am eternally grateful for all the instructors and staff at PSU did for me."

"Not good. Standards have been lowered since I graduated to where I do not believe people are receiving the education they should. People should leave college with a degree where they do know how to do Algebra, know how to tell daylight hours from night without any problems and write book reports without cheating. The library should hold more importance than the football field with regular changes in books, without having any that literally belong in a museum. Also the library should be a quiet place for studying, not eating, watching television or playing games online. The state itself does not help with this issue and I only hope things will not get worse."

"My graduate program provides the most professional, educated, and supporting faculty which facilitates the excellent education I am receiving. Because it is a smaller program, faculty are always available in any capacity and networking amongst other students is effortless. The single negative aspect is, due to my own choosing, I must commute from a neighboring town."
