Why did you choose Point Park University?
I chose Point Park because of its urban campus and small classroom sizes. Having the city as my campus brings so many opportunities for internships and networking that I know I wouldn't be able to get anywhere else.
What's the best part about living Downtown?
The best part about living Downtown is that there is always something to do. From yoga in Market Square to all the different festivals and museums, there is never time to be bored and always a new place to explore.
How are you involved on campus?
I am the treasurer of United Student Government and play intramural volleyball. I'm also a tour guide for the admissions office, a mentor for Strong Women Strong Girls and I'm active in the Honors Program.
What do you enjoy most about your major?
I really love the political science program. All of my professors have worked or are currently working in politics, and know what I will need to learn to succeed. They are all extremely supportive and make sure that students are understanding and learning all of the class material.
What's your favorite thing to do on weekends in the city?
I like to go to The Waterfront or to museums in the area. Sometimes I'll go take yoga classes with my friends to relax.
What advice would you give to incoming students?
To get yourself out there! A perk of going to a small college is that you can easily get involved in activities and clubs on campus. Also, don't be afraid to ask for help. If you don't understand something going on in class or want to learn more about a topic, just ask your professor for help or get a study group together.
