    -Again, Pitt Arts. Their Free Visits program includes free admission to lots of local museums and the Conservatory. Signing up for the Newsletter gives you access to free trips to plays, concerts, dance performances and more, which also include free meals at some of the hottest Pittsburgh restaurants! These events are often worth over $50, but as a Pitt student you get to go for free. Pitt Arts also gives you discounts to other events through their Cheap Seats program. -Clubs, clubs, clubs. There are over 400. See below. -Pitt Program Council events. PPC is the event planning club at Pitt, and they get about 200k/year to play around with. In my freshman year, they brought in Hoodie Allen, Kenan Thompson, American Authors (with a free food truck festival), and Lupe Fiasco. They also do lots of other events throughout the year like spa days, open mic nights, trips to theme parks and pro sports games, paintball, and cupcake/cookie decorating. Other big clubs also bring people in, like the Rainbow Alliance brought in Laverne Cox. Read the Pitt News to stay updated on who's coming. -I definitely wouldn't say Pitt is a party school, but there is partying if you seek it out. There are also a couple cool clubs and bars around the city that students frequent.

    Fipps conservatory is a really fun place to explore, and great for dates too! There is a lot to do downtown, and there is a museum called the mattress factory that is free to students.

    There are so many things to do for fun at the University of Pittsburgh. Of course you have all the activities on campus, but you have free busing. You can take buses all over the city of Pittsburgh to some of the places that you get into for free with your Pitt ID.

    Transportation is apart of our fees so anytime you want to leave campus and you need to ride the bus, its as simple as a tap when you walk on to the bus. Nothing is too far and usually on the weekends I'll go find a place to eat or shop or a shop to go visit. Be willing to explore Pittsburgh beyond Oakland.

    In Oakland there is a lot of good and ethnic cheap food so eating out is also an option any time really. If you have the money to eat off campus, do so. There are plenty of concert halls and theaters in the city, some owned by the university. There are lots of places that are free to Pitt students such as the Fipps Conservatory and Carnegie Museum of Art and Natural History. We also get free bus fare with the IDs so we can travel all over the metropolitan area. Mt. Washington is perfect for a date with a significant other as it has view of one of the most beautiful skylines in the country and many high end restaurants. Of course there is the bar scene for older prospects, go to south side and you'll be surprised how many bars are known for their good food and friendly atmosphere.

    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.
