The University of Pittsburgh is a state-related research institution founded in 1787. A member of the Association of American Universities, this institution has campuses in Bradford, Greensburg, Johnstown, and Titusville. The university is highly ranked on several lists, including #24 in Top Public Schools and #68 in National Universities according to U.S. News & World Report. An Outside the Classroom Curriculum program is set in place to help students grow in areas outside of study, such as career preparation and service to others.
My decision to enroll at the University of Pittsburgh was the best I ever made. The incorporation of a college campus into a beautiful city cannot be found anywhere else. Its academics, athletics, extracurriculars, and city feel are unparalleled.

Pitt literally has something for everyone. There are majors/minors/certificates in nearly anything you could think of, over 400 clubs, and Pittsburgh is a city that offers a wide variety of living arrangements, tons of restaurants, and entertainment/fun events every weekend. There are also endless resources to get you the internships, research, and volunteer experiences that will help you get a good job when you graduate.
