Pittsburgh is an amazing city with a lot to offer our students. 

The Penn State in Pittsburgh series gives students opportunities to experience all that Pittsburgh has to offer, specifically in four different areas: Educational, Cultural, Athletics, and Fun. 

Participating students will be in Pittsburgh, see the city, and experience new things.  They will also get to meet Penn State students from other campuses, providing a social experience with other students throughout the Penn State System.
