Point Park University students in the Honors Program, as well as photography and sports, arts and entertainment management majors, traveled to New York City for alternative spring break this semester. Professors Helen Fallon, Teresa Gregory, April Friges, Ben Schonberger and Zachariah Szabo, part-time instructor, accompanied the group.
"This trip gave us the chance to see what other cities are like and the opportunity to do things we may not have been able to do on our own," said Autumn Barszczowski, a sophomore public relations and advertising major from City Charter High School in Pittsburgh, Pa.
Some of the highlights of the trip included:
- Visits to Chelsea Galleries/Market, Whitney Museum of American Art, Little Italy, Rockefeller Center, Central Park, Lincoln Center, The Juilliard School, The New York Public Library, Radio City Music Hall and NBC Studios
- An alumni networking event at the District Tap House
- Broadway tickets to see Waitress, Miss Saigon and Sunset Boulevard
"I loved the trip. It was an affordable way to experience New York City," said Alexa Newbrough, a freshman theatre major from Deer Lakes High School in West Deer, Pa. "We were able to enjoy ourselves, but still learn through cultural experiences."
