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.

While in Pittsburgh it is worth taking some time to drive and walk thru the University of Pittsburgh. It is only 20 minutes from the City but worth taking time to visit
