The Benedum Center in Pittsburgh
W&J Presidents go to Pittsburgh and Beyond...
One of many visits to Pittsburgh that I have been fortunate to experience during my four-year education at W&J was a trip to the Benedum Theater.
As a freshman at W&J, I witnessed an opera with my classmates on Sunday, October 21, 2007 called Madame Butterfly. My experience was enjoyable because I was amazed by the stage that was built on top of water, the astonishing orchestra, and the interesting plot which involved the American officer coming back to take Butterfly’s son away with his new wife.
Another memorable visit to Pittsburgh was going on the Gateway Clipper. It was my first weekend as a freshman at W&J. As soon as we got on the boat we ate breakfast at 10 a.m., then everyone danced and mingled to the D.J.’s music playing while touring Pittsburgh for three hours.
During our tour, we were able to see Heinz field, PNC Park, Station Square and the Southside. This tour was a lot of fun because I was able to meet new friends and see cool parts of Pittsburgh from the water.
At W&J, we have a bus called the Pittsburgh Pipeline that takes students to any part of Pittsburgh on the weekends. The bus will leave W&J at 6:30 p.m., and then go to the Station Square Shops, Mario’s Southside, Oakland, the Strip District and return to campus at 8:30 p.m. The bus travels to the same places every two hours after 8:30 p.m. and returns to campus at 2:30 a.m.
W&J offers many opportunities to explore beautiful Pittsburgh and everything the city has to offer its nearby college students.
