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.
