    Coming from a big city, I didn't expect to like Pitt-Bradford as much as I do. I'm currently a freshman, headed into my second semester and I'm finding myself having a great time! Professors here are extremely helpful and care about students as individuals, staff members are very kind and always looking for ways to improve our experiences as students, and while the food isn't amazing, it's edible. Housing is also quite nice, even in the townhouses, which appear to be very cramped at first but are actually not too bad. The surrounding community is small and quiet, it's quite sleepy. Overall, I love this campus.

    Financial aid is the main reason I chose to come to Pitt-Bradford and I can say with certainty that it was a wise decision.

    Coming from a much more civilized, suburban and city atmosphere, I did not know what to expect when I heard of the City of Bradford. For starters, the best thing about Pitt-Bradford is the personalized experiences, relationships, and involvement you are able to indulge in while attending the Pitt branch campus. However, the surrounding areas, party scene, and social culture could be extensively improved. In addition, the school should focus more of its grant funding and petty cash on updating current facilities, especially the athletics and gym center, and dump additional funds into larger campus wide events that will generate more traffic rather than small events weekly that nobody wants to attend.
    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.
