At the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford, we know college is a big deal. And getting ready for college is a big deal, too. It is exciting, but it also can be nerve-wracking and scary. So, we want to give you information that will help you prepare for and adjust to college, whether you’re a prospective student or the parent or family member of one.

We’re going to help demystify financial aid, which is confusing and complicated for almost everybody. We’ll discuss the admissions process and what you – either as a prospective student or a parent – can do to prepare for it.

For students, we’ll address how you can avoid the dreaded Freshman 15, how you can deal with roommate issues, ways you can save money while you’re in college, and how to choose a college major.

For parents, we’ll help you deal with empty-nest syndrome, give you hints on how to help your son or daughter make the transition to college, offer advice on what to look for during a college tour, and even give you ideas on how to put together a care package that your son or daughter will love.

We want to do all that in a way that isn’t stuffy or stoic or boring because who likes that? We also hope this will be a two-way conversation. If you read something and have a question or a comment, please let us know.

The University of Pittsburgh at Bradford is a regional campus of the University of Pittsburgh and is located in Bradford, PA, about 165 miles north of Pittsburgh and 75 miles south of Buffalo, NY.   

There are more than 1,600 students on our campus, who get to work one-on-one with their professors, are known by their names not numbers, and who find a comfortable, friendly environment on campus, which is nestled in the foothills of Pennsylvania’s Allegheny Mountains.

  1. Hi University of Pittsburgh at Bradford Staff,

    I have been following your blog for some time and I really enjoyed reading it. I admire you and I am sure that a lot of students are grateful for this site in helping them prepare for college.

    I would like to see if I could submit a guest post or 2 for your blog/readers on the following topics:

    1.Why Private Student Loans are Becoming More Competitive
    2.How To Master That College Interview

    What do you think about these?

    For your information, all of our articles are custom written by our writers for your blog, and are absolutely free.

    If you are interested, I am happy to get something written up and sent over to you – or if you have another topic you’d like to see covered, please do let me know.

    Thanks and I look forward to your positive response.
