On Wednesday, March 4, members of the Pitt community from across the Commonwealth will gather for the annual “Pitt Day in Harrisburg.”
For more than 15 years, “Pitt Day in Harrisburg” has given members of the General Assembly an opportunity to talk with students, alumni, faculty, and staff about their work and to gain a first-hand perspective of the challenges and changes facing public higher education. Members of all Pitt campuses have annually traveled to Harrisburg in order to meet with elected officials and to be the voice of Pitt.
Highlights of the day include:
• Bus transportation to and from Greensburg
• Complimentary breakfast on the bus
• Tour of the Capitol
• Meetings with legislators
• Legislative reception in rotunda
Additionally, the Pitt Alumni Association, in conjunction with the Harrisburg Keystone Club, will be hosting a Pitt Alumni event from 5:30-7:30 p.m. the night before (Tuesday, March 3), with complimentary hors d’oeuvres and cash bar for all Pitt alumni. For more information, click here.
