There is a world of possibilities for undergraduate students at the University of Pittsburgh. We would love to give you a taste of what that could mean for you, so we’re inviting you and your parents to be our guests!

Like colleges nationwide, the University of Pittsburgh strives to recruit a diverse student population. In fall 2016, more than 1,650 undergraduate Pitt students identified themselves as African American, Hispanic, or Native American. You’ll find a supportive and inclusive culture in an engaging, urban environment. Our unique student body combined with incredible opportunities will help you find your fit.

Visiting campus is one of the most important parts of determining which college is best for you. We offer an on-campus event designed just for high-achieving African Americans, Hispanics, and Native Americans. You’ll hear details about opportunities and programs available to you, as well as the breadth of resources Pitt offers all students. Keynote speakers include:

  • Kathy Humphrey, PhD, Senior Vice Chancellor for Engagement, Chief of Staff, Secretary to the Board of Trustees
  • Juan Manfredi, PhD, Vice Provost for Undergraduate Studies

You’ll love that Pitt offers so many ways for you to put together a life and a future. We believe in this so strongly, that we have arranged for a bus to pick you up in Philadelphia, PA or Greenbelt, MD and bring you to campus. Buses will depart for Pittsburgh the afternoon of Sunday, February 26 and will return on Monday, February 27.

Once you’ve completed your registration form online, we’ll be back in contact to confirm the details of your visit. Meanwhile, if you have questions, please call or email Tessa Ludin at tml58@pitt.edu or 412-624-7711, Jane Byus at jeb286@pitt.edu or 412-624-7717, or Kate Snyder at kas428@pitt.edu or 412-624-7783.
