From day one, you’ll be ready for anything. You will have a first-year experience to acclimate you to college living, orient you to our campus and city, and introduce you to the people you’ll work with and learn from.

Your time at Pitt includes a comprehensive set of courses to enhance mind, body, and soul. The Outside the Classroom Curriculum features programs, activities, and experiences in critical areas such as communication skills, cultural awareness, and leadership development.

Pittsburgh may be a major city, but our campus is not right downtown and is quite compact so it’s easy to get around and get involved. There’s always something happening in the city or with campus activities and events. And all four years you’ll be in touch with Pitt’s Office of Career Development and Placement Assistance, which is ranked in the nation’s top 20 by The Princeton Review.
