Wish I would have did more digging when it was time to choose a school. I could have went here! Great location.

Went here for a college visit with my daughter. They did an awesome job with the overall presentation and tour. Casey was our tour guide and she was so helpful. Also a beautiful campus, even if she doesn't choose Pitt, it was an awesome experience.

had an amazing tour of campus and the city which was all organized by the university. The tours were conducted by student guides and provided a great snapshot to prospective students... Amazing historic buildings on campus. The visit resulted in a remarkable time strolling campus.

The Cathedral of Learning is a gem! It is the second tallest educational building in the world (the elevator to the 42nd floor is free, just like most of this visit), and houses classrooms reflecting ethnic groups from around the world - the Nationality Rooms.
