There is nothing like the experience of living on a college campus. The experiences you have, the camaraderie you will build, and the friends you will make for life are irreplaceable.
Here's just a brief idea of what you can expect living at Pitt-Bradford.
Our Student Activities Council sponsors diverse entertainment throughout the academic year, ranging from touring musical groups and artists, comedians, topical speakers, and discussions on current issues. Some of SAC's most popular events are Alumni and Family Weekend, Airband, Sib's and Kids Day and the Winter Week activities. SAC also has regularly subsidized off-campus programs such as an annual trip to a Pitt football game, trips to Cedar Point, professional sporting events, culturally diverse metropolitan areas, and more.
We offer more than 50 clubs and organizations open to all students. These include academic clubs, recreation clubs, campus media, service groups, and clubs focusing on national and international issues. Each semester Club Night is held for students to meet our student groups. For Fall 2014 Club Night will be held on Sept. 9 at 8:30 pm in the Commons. Free food and giveaways are provided.
There are other entertainment options available, too. Our resident advisors routinely sponsor fun events with the students living in their area. In addition, RAs sponsor a Late Night Event each Saturday night, mostly in the Commons, from 9 to midnight.
Any student can get involved in the Student Government Association. In fact, we encourage it. SGA is the representative body of the entire student population. SGA discusses and represents students on issues, concerns, and other matters that affect the student body.
We have five fraternities and four sororities on campus. These values-based groups, who represent 10% of the student population, strive to uphold their founding values of Scholarship, Leadership, Service and Brotherhood/Sisterhood. Groups actively recruit members each semester who match up with these values. Those students who do join a fraternity or sorority at Pitt-Bradford find it to be one of the most rewarding experiences of college life.
While some colleges tend not to mention the food offerings, we boast about it. Metz Culinary Management prepares the freshest foods daily for students and the campus community. Resident students choose from a meal plan that fits their needs, and they work with all students who are on special or restricted diets.
