Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

    Dining is pretty straightforward, the food served in the dining hall is pretty good. My only complaint is the repetitiveness of meals and how crowded it gets at certain times where they run out of silverware and seating. Other than that it's pretty good.

    Market is great! It's pretty lonely to eat there alone, but if you bring some work with you (which you will have plenty of) it's not so bad.

    Off campus there's a plethora or places to eat and enough food around that you will never have to eat the same thing twice.

    The food options are pretty decent for a college campus. There are many places with healthy and unhealthy food options available to appease any appetite.

    There are a wide range of food options. Not only university dinning but you also have places such as chipotle, Qudoba, Panera, Noodles, Dunkin Donuts, Starbucks, etc...

    Again, since I didn't live on campus I can't say much about the cafeteria. I personally didn't really like it, but I know it is a lot better and has way much more variety than most. The meal plans try to scam every freshman, so get the lowest one you can. The great thing about living in the city is that there are so many other options besides cafeteria food. Just don't tie up all your money in Dining Dollars and Swipes, and you'll be able to take advantage of that.

    The dining halls are pretty awesome, but get dining dollars over meal swipes so you dont get tired of eating the same food over and over again!

    Their dining hall offers just about any type of food and some of it is made to order.

Student Responses to Review Topic: Greek Life
  • 0
  • Be from Raleigh, NC
  • I am a past student here

    I've always been relatively anti-Greek life, so this is probably biased, but the Greek life on campus doesn't seem to do much. During rush week the sororities gather in front of Cathy and do something unbelievable loud in front of the building full of people studying, but otherwise I don't hear anything from them. When I left, Allocations was thinking of making it so Greek life could have access to funds used for clubs and organizations (which are free to everyone and usually to the public), and since I already don't think they do much in the community I can't imagine what giving them student money could help. They take members fees from their houses, I don't agree with them taking money used for open activities.

    Pitt is only 9% Greek so by all means not a go greek or go home school. But our greek life is still heavily involved on campus offering a wide range of events open to all Pitt students.

    Greek life isn't very popular at Pitt, but it's a close knit group that seems to have a lot of fun together. They also have 6 historically black (there are a few white/asian kids) sororities and fraternities.

    Greek life in Pittsburgh is minimal ( about eight percent of students) and has very negative associations. Greek life is also expensive and the stereotyped are basically caricatures on campus. Coming from a working class town like Pittsburgh and a working class family the sense of entitlement that is associated with frats is typically frowned upon. Besides there are much better ways to make friends at Pitt rather than pay for them. All of the clubs are very open minded.

    Greek life is definitely present on Pitt's campus, but there is no pressure to join. Pitt has a low percentage of students involved in Greek life, but it is there if you are interested.

    Greek life is not really that big at Pitt. There are multiple sororities and fraternities, but this is not a school that is Greek or leave.

    Very low... I believe the percent is around 10. Greek life is not huge at Pitt, but it is an option for many people who choose to participate. There are social and service fraternities. There are sororities as well.
