  • Great college, timeless alumni, and of course, home to The Steelers training camp.
  • People are lovely. It takes more than lovely people to create a great college. Although they do their best to help connect students with financial aid, this school is extremely expensive. As with any college/university, there will be poor professors, just maybe more here than I've encountered elsewhere. My son is studying here, but he will not be returning in the fall. We can find financial aid opportunities, we can get tutors to compensate for sub-standard professors. We cannot do ANYTHING about racial insensitivity. My son and his friends have endured everything from racial slurs to aggression while attending this school. As pleasant as the scenery is, I would not encourage any person of color to attend this institution.
