#PittsburghMe: Meet Meredith Kubic, Global Cultural Studies Major Thursday, October 27, 2016
Meet Meredith Kubic
What kinds of opportunities have you had through your major?
As a global cultural studies major, I have been able to take some really awesome courses. Japanese Culture with Dr. Fessler has been my favorite. After taking this class, I heard about a study abroad program called Semester at Sea. Dr. Fessler has taught with the program and he encouraged me to apply. I couldn't pass up this opportunity, and next semester I will be studying abroad!
Where could we find you hanging out on campus?
What kinds of clubs and activities are you involved in on campus?
In my freshman year I was a member of the Campus Activities Board and Strong Women Strong Girls. As a sophomore I helped create the Pay it Forward club. Now, I'm taking a break to focus on school and friends, since I will be leaving soon for my study abroad opportunity.
How is Pittsburgh different from your hometown?
Here, there are tall buildings, pigeons, good coffee, and brown squirrels. In all seriousness, Pittsburgh and Canfield are polar opposites. There is so much opportunity and adventure in Pittsburgh that I would never be able to find in my hometown.
Pittsburgh is known for its food scene. What is your favorite place to eat?
What advice would you give to incoming students?
Go exploring! Make the most of the place you're living in.
