Moreover, Pittsburg, KS is a medium size town of 21,000 residents and is a very good business town, fueled in part by Pitt State University with approximately 7,100 students and over 1000 employees. Besides the students, the university also attracts a number of regional events, including conferences, high school athletics, and meetings related to the various Colleges within Pitt State.
