Pittsburgh May Surprise You

Dubbed “The Steel City” for its place in history as the center of the steel industry, the Pittsburgh of today has been reimagined and transformed into a hub for tech, healthcare, and higher ed — a lively city that’s full of surprises.

Pittsburgh is highly affordable, foodie-friendly and home to first-rate museums, theaters, and 90 unique neighborhoods. With more trees per square mile than any other U.S. city, Pittsburgh has more than 1,700 acres of city park and one of the world’s largest concentrations of certified "green" buildings.

Come for your two years at Tepper. Who knows, you might just stay longer.
