I was never one to go to the fraternities but that is always an option. There are parties in South and North Oakland.
a lot at the frat houses...but you may or may not enjoy yourself
Your first semester is going to be filled with great frat parties, but that starts to die down once it gets cold. Then, it's probably best you join a club that throws parties, because finding a party is rare in the winter unless you know some upperclassmen.
There's always stuff going on everywhere. If you and your friends walk outside, you can find something. You see the short dresses and partiers out even in the cold, to be honest.

There are plenty of things going on in Pittsburgh any given night. Generally, as long as you're willing to seek out activities, you won't be at a loss. There are a number of bars close to campus that are popular with Pitt students, and even more up the street in Shadyside that are usually frequented by CMU and grad students. Many students choose to stick around Oakland for the convenience and the drink specials. Parties run rampant around campus on weekends between South Oakland and CMU house parties and frat events at both schools. Guys will have a hard time getting into frats unless they know someone, but girls shouldn't have any trouble. House parties on the other hand are open to everyone. But guys, be ready to pay at any frat or house party you go to, girls are usually free.
The city's nightlife shouldn't exhaust itself before the school year does. If you're willing to hop a bus or take a cab, the clubs of the Strip District, the North Shore, and Station Square are all great potential evenings. The bars in the South Side also offer limitless possibilities and varieties. Overall, there is still a lot to do and find around Pitt, no matter how old you are—as long as you're willing to look around and be creative.
