    Pittsburgh is a really artistic city. There are always symphonies performing, plays, musicals, ballets, and art exhibits. A lot of these shows are discounted for college students and many museums are free for college students. Also, Pitt has a program called PittArts where you can sign up to go on arts field trips to see a performance or art exhibit and get lunch or dinner, all for free.

    Thankfully, living both in the city and on a large campus, there's infinite possibilities for things to do. There's the downtown area for shopping and seeing movies, the fields on campus for pick-up sports, and so on.

    There are a lot events put on by university groups such as movie nights, guest speakers, and concerts. Many people attend basketball and football games, which are a ton of fun. Schenley Park and Phipps Conservatory are across the street. There are hundreds of clubs, intramural sports, and groups to get involved with which host a variety of events. Additionally, Downtown Pittsburgh is only a ten minute bus ride away, and the movie theater is only a fifteen minute bus ride.

    With your Pitt ID, you can ride any form of Alleghany County public transportation. Because of this, you can go anywhere in the county that you want. Stage AE is a great venue for music shows, South Side Works is a great place for shopping, and on Saturdays, the Strip is a blast to go to for market fresh fruits and vegetables. On campus, Nordy's in the student union has a sports bar type feel to it, with pool and Ping-Pong tables. Pitt basketball games are one of the most fun events to attend at Pitt. Also, there are free (or for a small fee) concerts hosted by the Pitt Program Council. For example, I have seen Neon Trees, Twenty One Pilots, Wale, All Time Low, and One Republic just in a year and a half of attending the university. The options for fun are endless!

    Pitt offers free transportation to all students and there are many museums that take a Panther ID for free admission like the Andy Warhol Museum. The Carnegie Natural History and Art Museum is right across the street and it's gorgeous, fit with art pieces on one side and dinosaurs on the other. Pitt has a Pitt Arts program where you can get discounted tickets to ballets and Broadway shows. There are many places the buses can take you like South Side, Shady side, Squirrel Hill, etc. for food and fun.

    http://www.pittsburghmagazine.com/Pittsburgh-Magazine/April-2011/50-Fun-Things-Every-Pittsburgher-Must-Do/ Can't fit everything here, but Pittsburgh is a city. It might not be New York or L.A., but it's pretty close and has just about everything you'd expect from a city.
