Just finished my first semester here and I absolutely love it. I love being in a city but also having a campus feel. The people are great. The professors are great. The area is great. Loving it so far.

We were there on Thnaksgivng Day and nothing was open, but it was well worth a walk around campus, which is really beautiful. The Cathedral of Learning and Heinz Chapel are stunning.

I was very impressed the the University when I went with my daughter for a campus tour and info session. It was pouring rain, but the tours and info sessions were well organized. Pitt ponchos were provided to help keep you dry.
