    This is probably the best thing about Point Park University. Living in a city as vibrant as Pittsburgh never stops being exciting. The city has dozens of events pretty much every week. Students have free access to the Carnegie museums and The Mattress Factory too! If you search, there is always something going on! It is hard to get bored, especially as a freshman :)

    Roam around Pittsburgh, try to befriend people in Oakland so you actually have somewhere to party, try to get deals at CVS, Netflix.

    There are many theatres in the area to catch a show, cinemas, and you can't beat ice skating in PPG plaza in the winter!

    Attending class downtown certainly opens up the door for many different activities over the school year. For instance, in winter there is ice skating available in the PPG place around the Christmas tree put up for the holiday season. However, in the summer months you can go down to the Point where the Three Rivers come together and enough a wonderful park near the water. In your free time between classes there is a Student Activities building that has a gym, a pool, dance classes, pool tables, foosball tables, ping-pong, ect. which available to all students any time they want!

    Being in downtown Pittsburgh, there is a lot to do for fun. Point Park is located right near the cultural district so there are always options to go see shows. Also within walking distance is the home locations for the Pirates, Steelers, and the Penguins!

    There are constantly activities going on around the school so its never boring, and if you are under 21 you can always go to Whim every Thursday night and do a little dancing there

    There are occasional sports events and campus activities but in general people leave this campus and go into more exciting areas of the city, Oakland or Shadyside, and onto the campuses of other schools in the city. Downtown and the majority of its establishments shut down around five o'clock. The true cultural center is where all the other colleges are in this city.
