Pittsburgh has been making headlines especially in the last two years. The city has done it again. Pittsburgh also has a strong university presence. There are over 12 Universities here in Pittsburgh. This equates to great employment opportunities and livability as these schools are large employers.
“Pittsburgh has a really great cultural scene. We have a great ballet and a great symphony that travels the world and performs to packed houses, and there’s a restaurant scene that’s much more diverse than it ever was when I was growing up,” says Wendy Hermann, director of student services for master’s programs and a Pittsburgh native. “And it’s an easier sell, now that the Steelers and Penguins won their respective titles.”
Indeed, Pittsburgh’s art scene, job prospects, safety and affordability make it the most livable city in the country, according to measures studied.
