What is there to do in Greensburg?

We are now in our third week of classes. The past three weeks have been hectic. Students are making new friends, getting use to living away from home, meeting new professors, and adapting to new classes. What is there to do now?

Students come to Seton Hill from all over the country and world, and may not be sure about what the Greensburg area offers. No matter what you are interested in, you will not have to travel far to find it. Greensburg is only 35 miles east of Pittsburgh. Pittsburgh has many times been named one of the top 20 places to live. In Pittsburgh you will find the Mellon Arena (Pittsburgh Penguins hockey), Heinz Field (Pittsburgh Steelers football), and PNC Park (Pittsburgh Pirate baseball). If you seek thrills then you might be interested in Kennywood or Sand Castle Parks. There is the Pittsburgh Zoo and Aquarium as well as an aviary for the animal lovers. A complete list of attractions can be found on the Seton Hill website.

If you came to Seton Hill to escape city life, then you might be interested in Seven Springs Mountain Resort, Hidden Valley, or Ohio Pyle. These locations provide outdoor enjoyment for skiing, biking, rafting, hiking, tubing, horseback riding, etc.

In the city of Greensburg you will also find various things to do, including many events that take place on campus. Greensburg is home to the Westmoreland Symphony Orchestra and the Westmoreland Museum of Art. For shopping, dining, and movies visit the Westmoreland Mall and surrounding commercial area.

I hope you enjoy your year at Seton Hill and time in the Greensburg area.

I am so glad you went over this Jenna, it is easy for students to complain that there is nothing to do in the area, but they haven't even begun to look around.
If you or anyone else finds out about different fairs, events, etc. that are close for our non-driving student population, I would love to see it posted.
