    Dining hall isn't that great. However, there is another place to eat called Gorilla Crossing which provides noodles, pizza, subway... etc.

    Your dining experience is more than great food. It is community experience centered on culinary expertise, fresh ingredients, healthy options and a shared sense of environmental and social responsibility.

    The dining hall is a wonderful place. The cooks and employees are very nice and wonderful. The food is always fresh, and not to mention we have soft cookies that always taste great. The dining hall always has pizza and other great tasting foods. There is many different options of beverages such as flavored water, hot chocolate, soda, tea and juice. The dining hall is opened all day so you are able to go and eat whenever your heart desires. Also, in the student services building there is pizza hut a café and other food areas but have different hours than the dining hall.

    Your typical dining hall food. But the chicken noodle soup is fantastic. There's also places to eat in the Student Center and the Technology center, plus the coffee shop in the Library!

    Geek life can be strenuous but it rewarding. Nobody shows animosity towards the geeks because they are a big part of the Pitt State community.

    Love it, love it, love it. I am not the typical sorority girl. I love my country life and getting dirty. This is way out of my comfort zone. But, the girls and guys I have meet are awesome. They are part of my new found family. They care and give so much. We do alot of community service and gives us to give back to the community that gives so much to the students here on campus.
