Will learn a lot
I will be attending UPG in the Fall, and I truly believe this university will be great for me. After all, I'll have the benefits of small class sizes and the University of Pittsburgh diploma.
Will enjoy being here
The campus is beautiful! Also, it's nice and spread out so it is large enough to explore, but it is small enough to make it to classes on time.
Bang for the buck
My main reasoning for attending a branch campus of Pitt was the ability to gain merit scholarships. The tuition is around $21,000, and I already have a $6,500 merit scholarship!
Tips for prospective students
Check out the campus!
Great for these types of students
Great for students who want a public school with smaller classes.

In three sentences
It is a small campus, so there is no worrying about leaving an hour before your class to make it on time. It is easy to get to know the professor(s) of your major. The classes are not overly huge, they are conducted in a normal classroom, not a giant auditorium.
Tips for prospective students
Do research your professors, it will help you get to know if your learning style with work with their teaching style. Do not stress out, the classes are small and it is easy to talk to your professors.
Academic Rigor
It is challenging, but it is college. Just keep on top of your homework, essays and projects and you'll be doing fine.
Dorm Life
There are a good amount of campus activities, and there are always fliers hanging around to let you know when,where, and what is up. There is even a monthly calendar that lists all the events. Also, there is a zombie-human game that takes place every spring.
Food and Dining
The cafeteria is all you can eat, and there is a snack bar outside of it that you can get fresh salads and hoagies and pizza hut pizza. Also, there is the coffee house with frequently has open mic nights and is open late.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
There is the human-zombie game on campus that takes place every spring. There is one zombie to start out, and as humans you get missions to accomplish every night but watch out for the zombies because they are watching too. Also, there are the Hall Olympics. Don't worry you can be a commuter student and still participate.
Campus Safety
The campus is safe. Since it is so small and not located in a city, it is not easy for just anyone to walk onto. The campus police are frequently driving around and there are lights everywhere.
