Pittsburg State University-University Advancement
“There’s something special about Pittsburg State University.” This is the answer you’re likely to get when you ask any of the University’s 65,000 alumni about their experience at Pittsburg State. It’s the result of a unique combination of nationally-recognized academics, caring faculty, affordable tuition and an incredibly supportive community.

Founded in 1903, Pittsburg State University has positioned itself as one of the leading academic institutions in the Midwest. Its four colleges boast some of the most advanced academic programs in the region and have been recognized by national publications such as U.S. News and World Report, Entrepreneur Magazine and The Princeton Review. Pittsburg State’s 440-acre campus provides the University’s 7,000 students with a traditional college experience in the comfort of a small town. Its popular tuition plans allow many out-of-state students to attend at in-state rates or reduced cost, and every full-time student can take additional courses at no additional charge.

Pittsburg State is the only university in the nation to feature a Gorilla as a mascot. Its 10 athletic programs compete at the NCAA Division II level and regularly compete for conference and national championships. Students at Pittsburg State feel at home from the moment they step on campus. This has as much to do with the city of Pittsburg as it does with the University’s incredible campus. Conveniently located in southeast Kansas, the 20,000 residents of Pittsburg love their university and it shows. Red and gold banners, concrete Gorillas and University logos can be found throughout the city. Pittsburg State students quickly realize that they have become part of something special. They have become Gorillas, and, as we say, “Once a Gorilla, Always a Gorilla.”
