What have prospective students said about previous Open Houses?

"As I live in Indiana, I thoroughly enjoyed finally being able to be on campus and to get a feel for life at the University of Pittsburgh. It felt very welcoming and like somewhere I not only can see myself in the future, but also as somewhere that I want to be. My favorite part of the Open House was the opportunity to talk to the director of the program I will be applying for. She was friendly, helpful, encouraging, informative, and a great resource. I look forward to visiting UPitt in the future."
-Prospective SHRS Student

" I really enjoyed talking to the students who were already in my program and hearing from them what to expect and some tips for applying!"
-Prospective SHRS Student 

"The people I met were all incredibly nice and helpful, and I got the sense that everyone genuinely wanted to be there because they loved their programs and wanted to share them with others. I thought the set-up was nice, it was relatively easy to navigate, and though I was set on the OT program, I really liked that there were so many different programs to visit on the same day. I like how it was a whole SHRS open house rather than a specific program's open house. Overall, I had a great time and my only complaint is that it was too short! Thank you for putting on this event.”
