University of Pittsburgh - Bradford Reviews

What I found beneficial:
Time to study and complete work. No shortage of oil, natural gas, or anything with the brand name "Zippo."
What I found disapointing:
Without school work, the cafeteria, and a small social life, this campus is dead. Most students travel home on weekends leaving a lame campus on weekends. There are still small gatherings and the occasional elbow to elbow party at the frat house. Most rowdy gatherings get busted.
There are a limited number of professors around. This means if you can't learn with a professor's teaching style, you are either out of luck or doomed for excessive study time.
No stoves or any provided method for cooking meals yourself. Cafeteria crew bust their rears to provide us with plenty of food. Sadly, more quantity equals a lesser quality. Most days the chefs are stellar with meals and despite awful quality, I stuff my face because it tastes amazing!

Come here and take 18 credits, you'll be set for the year.
Review University of Pittsburgh - Bradford
Never expected to go to UPB, but now at the end of my 1st year, I realized it was one of the best decisions.They transfer credits and take AP scores some colleges won't saving $ and time. Anyone bored on campus probably isn't TRYING to be involved. From the beginning of my time here I got an awesome job in Communications & Marketing, played on the tennis team , joined clubs while staying on Dean's List.The professors are great and have credentials beyond what I ever would expected, and they get to know you if you show up to classes almost immediately. I've made such a diverse group of friends from all of the US and also the world! Only negative thing I can say is that the town of Bradford doesn't have a lot to do but if you take advantage of what the university offers, you WILL go places. No lie, within 2 months I've been to NYC, Pittsburgh, Winston-Salem, and Buffalo all with the school.
My experience at the Pitt-Bradford has been incredible. Small class sizes and caring professors have helped me get a great education and awesome job/internship opportunities. If you care about learning and are willing work, it's easy to do well here.

Admittedly, there's not a lot of entertainment in Bradford, but it's not hard to find something to do. Most students are active in clubs or Greek life, and the university sponsors events on campus all the time. If you have outdoor hobbies or may be interested in picking one up, Pitt-Bradford is a good choice.

The people are the best thing about UPB. Every single person who works for the university - whether it's the dean of student affairs, the Starbucks barista, or the maintenance workers - is uplifting, helpful, and truly cares about the students who attend this university. Pitt-Bradford feels like home. The feeling of belonging that comes with attending UPB outweighs any critique one could have of this place.
