"Point Park gives me the freedom and the city life I so desperately craved."
Why did you choose Point Park?
I chose Point Park because it is ranked #2 in the country for dance!
How does Pittsburgh differ from other cities you have visited?
It’s so fresh and so clean, and I love how it flawlessly blends the old and the new together.
How does living at Point Park differ from your home?
Point Park gives me the freedom and the city life I so desperately craved.
What changes have you noticed in yourself since moving to Pittsburgh?
I’m so much more independent and have really come into my own. Pittsburgh is the best place to go to college because it marries city life without being too overwhelming like New York.
Pittsburgh has been noted as being one of America's "Most Livable Cities." What do you think makes Pittsburgh so "livable?"
The whole community aspect of the city. Even though I am a Ravens fan through and through, I can really appreciate how much Pittsburgh loves their sports teams. Everyone shares the same sort of interests and really looks out for one another.
It's lunchtime and you are hungry after a morning of class, where do you eat?
Unless Market Square is swamped with suits and ties, then obviously Primanti’s.
Where are we most likely to find you on a night out in the city?
Depends on the evening! I’m too broke to go to the movies as often as I would like but walking around Shadyside on a warm Saturday (for three months of the school year) is so nice! But on the weekends, you’ll see me dancing in the South Side all night long.
