Did some looking around with my daughter who was considering going to the film school associated with the college. Lots of cute shops, a wonderfully friendly little bar where we stopped for lunch, a place that's history you can feel as you drive around.

Everyone we encountered at the University was amazing, friendly, helpful. They wanted the world to know what a wonderful university it is. Congratulations Pitt students and staff, you all did a great job of representing your school to prospective students and parents.
