We really liked the University of Pittsburgh. The information session was well prepared, and our tour guide was very good. My only complaint is that there is SO much to see that they couldn't possibly get it into a short tour, and if we had realized how much would be missing (like the pool and Pete center), we would have...

Got my Master's Degree from Pitt and it served me well all my life. They have a great reputation, great sports and not to expensive.

First time I saw the campus and the tall building, I was mind-blown. I got my bachelor's degree from CA, and my MBA from FL. Neither of the school has the history like this one!

We visited the area during spring break so it was nice and not terribly crowded. It gave my 11 yr old daughter something to look forward to when thinking about colleges.

The centerpiece of the University of Pittsburgh is the magnificent Cathedral of Learning. Just spend an hour wandering around the commons realm and look into the Nationality Rooms. Each is unique, and each is an actual classroom! Tip, they do offer guided tours of both the Nationality Rooms and the campus for interested students.

The tour of the college was excellent. Buildings are beautiful, people friendly, and choices for students excellent. A great place to send your child to school. Clean, abundant with activities, and an excellent chance for an education.

Pitt is worth a visit. On its grounds are the Cathedral of Learning and Heinz Chapel which is gorgeous. It has a wonderful library and is in a lovely neighborhood. The new stadium is also worth seeing. Pitt provides an excellent education.

Our daughter had a great experience as an engineering major. She loved Pitt (well, maybe not the winter weather). She learned a lot, met good friends, and thought the city was very college friendly. She still lives there several years after graduation.
