About 3,850 students participated in the 2016 Pitt Make a Difference Day on Oct. 22. Students from the Oakland campus dispersed across many local communities to work on one of more than 100 different volunteer projects. Interest this year was so spirited that organizers had a waitlist of 650 students.

Scenes from the day include student work teams volunteering at the Swissvale Nine Mile Run Watershed:
