Student Life

Pitt-Greensburg students on Lynch Hall steps

Come together. One team.

How does a group of students team up with the local community to build affordable houses across Westmoreland County? How does a hockey team gain 33,000 Twitter followers? How do you outrun a team of zombies chasing you with marshmallow-loaded Nerf guns? The answer lies in this exceptional community.

When we talk about life outside the classroom at Pitt-Greensburg, it’s hard to know where to begin. Because the extraordinary things happening here each day are all worth sharing. It’s this culmination of intellectual, professional, spiritual, and character development that happens in your four years that, when it comes graduation time, makes you realize that life you build in between class — studying with friends or shooting the breeze, rallying for a cause or running for student office — the sum of it all is what really made your experience something truly special.

Get Involved. Make a difference.

We have over 40 student clubs and organizations, each with their own purpose. There are clubs for the fun of it, from bowling to yoga. Organizations for professional development (such as the Greensburg Experience More co-curricular program), honors societies in a number of disciplines, student publications like The Insider, Pitt-Greensburg’s student run newspaper. And service groups for important causes, such as Active Minds, raising awareness about mental health issues and hosting healthy stress-free events for the campus community. Explore them all, and find your place.

Pursue opportunities to make a difference right in the Pitt-Greensburg community and develop as a leader. Join the Student Government Association, Student Activities Board, or become an International Student Advisor, helping our growing international community feel at home right away. Join the team of residence hall Community Assistants, working with every student to make residence life memorable and enjoyable.

If you’re interested in living on campus, you’ll find there’s a place for you here — from the Academic Village living community to Westmoreland Hall, home the Outdoor Adventure & Community Service (OACS) living community.

Commuters take a study break or relax between classes at the Fireside Lounge. There is even a microfridge provided for you to store or heat your lunch.
