I have lived in Pitman my entire life so far and as I look back on all my memories of my town I would definitely stay for the rest of it. Pitman is a small town where everyone knows everyone which at times can feel overwhelming but mostly it feels like one huge family. I always feel safe on the streets of my town and there are so many town wide activities to participate in like 4th Friday celebrations, parades, fireworks, food truck festivals and more. I love that everyone in the town is encouraged to come together and have fun! Pitman is without a doubt my favorite town.

I have lived in Pitman for 11 years and my overall experience has been good. The residence of this small suburban town are kind and respectful. The school system is good, although I have had a few problems with some of their disciplinary actions for students that arrive late. The town itself is very beautiful. There are many events hosted in the town, such as craft fairs, that attract a huge crowed from both Pitman and surrounding towns. There are tons of places to eat up and down Broadway, and many unique stores in between. The plethora of businesses allows for many job opportunities in the area. The police officers of Pitman are very respectable and delightful. The town is not very diverse and is mainly occupied by Caucasian people. Overall, I believe that the town is pleasant and would recommend checking it out.
I've lived in Pitman all of my life and I love it here so much. I really enjoy PItman's uptown area, lots of places to eat and hang out, even a theater! Speaking of, Pitman is very accepting of the arts, even amongst its success in athletics. Despite this, one problem that's rather concerning in Pitman is its lack of diversity, as a freshman in high school I could probably count the number of colored people in my grad on my fingers. All in all, Pitman is a lovely place to be, especially for families!
