Each weekend the Office of Freshmen Development offers programming opportunities for freshmen students. The events take place off campus and offer freshmen students a chance to meet other freshmen students and discover cultural, entertainment and recreational attractions in the Pittsburgh and surrounding region. This year’s programs have included a double decker bus tour of the city, a behind the scenes zoo trip, bus trip to Washington D.C., Kennywood Phantom Fright Nights, a glass blowing class, and Pittsburgh Pirates games; to name a few. Upcoming programs for the spring semester include a Niagara Falls trip, ski/snow tubing trip, and many other exciting programs.
