Life at Pitt State
As a Pitt State student, your studies are your number one priority. But even the best students don't study all the time. And that begs a question: When it's time to give the books a rest, what's there to do?
The answer, we're glad to report, is plenty. There are 150 student-run clubs and organizations, organized around interests that range from debate and forensics to music and martial arts. Fraternities and sororities enliven campus life. Students from 45 countries lend an international atmosphere to campus, and celebrations showcasing other cultures are popular campus events. You can scale the walls with the rock-climbing club, or give blood by playing rugby. And how many colleges have their own drag-racing club?
A lot of what happens on campus happens because students make it happen. Take an active role in campus life by joining the Student Activities Council, which arranges events throughout the academic year, offering everything from career planning sessions to rock concerts.
And nothing brings the campus community together quite like Gorilla Athletics. Football weekends, basketball games, track meets, and other sports events are much-anticipated highlights on the calendar.
