"I'm a big baseball fan, so going to Pirates games in the spring and summer is a blast!"
Why did you choose Point Park?
I chose Point Park because of the photography program. Only one school in Georgia offers photography as a bachelor's degree. Point Park gave me a good amount of financial aid.
How does Pittsburgh differ from other cities you have visited?
The weather is a lot different. I’m from the south so the winter here is not fun.
What is your favorite thing to do in Pittsburgh?
I'm a big baseball fan, so going to Pirates games in the spring and summer is a blast!
How does living at Point Park differ from your home?
I have a lot more freedom living on campus. If I want to go out with friends I can just leave, and don’t have to ask for permission.
What changes have you noticed in yourself since moving to the Pittsburgh?
I think I’ve matured a lot and have become more responsible.
How often do you visit home during the school year?
I usually go home 3-4 times throughout the school year, usually during breaks. I can’t really go for a weekend since I live 700 miles away.
Describe your experience living in Pittsburgh in one word.
