Hello There

So right now I'm walking backwards across the bridge to a park on campus called Chen Lee Park, and this park has a lot of things. It has a golf course and ice skating rink, playgrounds and a bunch of running trails, which I personally am a huge fan of. And over here behind me is, um, like love locks. We're like couples like lock their love onto this bridge. Over here is Fitz Conservatory Botanical Garden. So, yes, we have a botanical garden on campus. It's free for incidents, which is super nice, and they have like flowers and plants from all over the world. It's really pretty outside. This is okay. There's Cathy, and that area over there is called plaque stuff, Phil. In the summer, they like this huge screen on movies for free. So it's really nice to come with like family and friends. It's a lot of fun All right, let's talk weather. I think whether is one of those things on college campus tours that just gets glossed over. But the weather where you'll be living for the next four years is so important, the whether here in Pittsburgh, it's ah, yeah, we have all four seasons, so we're lucky for that. The springs and falls here are really nice, but we're not so lucky to have is a lot of rain, sometimes unpredictable and not gonna lie to you. Our winters can get pretty cold sometimes in the negatives, but our weather is also really bipolar. Like last week it was snowing almost every day and now it's forty seven degrees. Basically, if you like to have all four seasons and you don't mind the cold that much, then you'll be fine here. Pamela's Diner has the best pancakes I've ever had in my life. Obama actually liked them so much that he flew one of the chefs to the White House to personally make these for him. No college campus is complete without a star books, and we actually have another Starbucks on a street parallel to this because, you know, one Starbucks isn't enough, and over here is lotsa. You can custom make your own pizza, and then it's ready and like one hundred and fifty seconds in the oven. There's Chavo play another college campus essential. And over there's P otta. It's an Italian street food place and you concussed to make your own salads, pastas? Piat is there. So we have a lot of custom Hey, guys, I just came back from volunteering at the hospital.

Because not only are programs for the Creole science is top notch, but we have a ton of hospitals here under UPMC, which is which stands for the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center and just on Oakland campus, which is pits campus. There are four hospitals, one right behind me right there. And here's another UPMC. I want to say that in Pittsburgh there's a total of around twenty UPMC hospitals, so it's great for union clinical exposure, shadowing doctors or volunteering at a hospital because they're still me different hospitals here for you to get that opportunity. So Kyle lives and one of the freshmen dorms called Southern Hall. And it's Ah, it's the honors College freshmen storm. It's on upper campus, so it's a little bit more removed from the rest of campus. But there's a bus that comes up here, so it's not a problem. Toe lock up here or us up here. Um, I actually used to live here three years ago, so it was really nice to come back and look at everything and see how much has changed in the past three years.
