What’s New This Year at Pitt-Greensburg?

by Rebecca Robinson

With the new school year in full swing, Pitt-Greensburg has many new things to offer students. Changes range from food services to residence life to additions of majors and more.

“We’re always open to new input,” Rick Fogle, Pitt-Greensburg Dean of Student Services, said. “It’s the start of an exciting year, we’ve added programs and working to add new staff.”

Some of the big changes to campus this year are as follows:

  • Vegetarian or Avoiding Gluten meals seven days a week
  • Expanded Wagner Dining Hall hours for dinner on Saturday and Sunday to 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.
  • UV Splash Night Color Run as a part of Blue and Gold Weekend
  • Wireless print station in each residence hall
  • Greensburg Getaway weekend day trips to the Strip District, Fallingwater, and Grove City Outlets
  • New Majors:
    • Biochemistry
    • English Writing major redesigned to Creative and Professional Writing
    • Information Technology, former Oakland major, now a Pitt-Greensburg major
    • Spanish Education
  • Replaced Mapworks with Beacon

Beth Tiedemann, Director of Advising and Registrar, said, “We just found out this week that the Greensburg campus received a very large grant, a federal grant, for over two million dollars.”

There are high hopes for more things to be added to the campus in the future.

“I think it’s so early, we don’t even know what all will be impacted, but it’s really exciting,” Tiedemann said.

If anyone has any ideas for new programs to be added to our campus, contact Rick Fogle at fogle@pitt.edu or Al Thiel at ajt58@pitt.edu.
