A city like Pittsburgh can sometimes feel too big and too small at the same time. This vibrant city on the western edge of Pennsylvania that we Pitt students call home is a strange and wonderful place. But how exactly do you find things to do and visit in a city that you may not know outside of your dorm room?
Culture has it all covered for you. Here you can find the coverage of the newest and tastiest food festivals in Pittsburgh, guided stories about Schenley and Frick Park or a breakdown of Pitt’s upcoming student theater scene. But we also keep you updated on all the bigger happenings on the world cultural scene with breaking movie and TV reviews for everything you watch.
I can’t wait for you to read all of the things we have in store for you this year. Without my culture-loving employees like me, this desk would have little to offer. I am just happy to work with them.
My name is Diana Velasquez, I am an up and coming junior with an emphasis on English and Classical and I definitely know more about MCU than anyone you know. I’m a seasoned Aries, I spend way too much time reading romance novels and I can speak a little High Valyrian. If we ever meet just ask if you’d like to hear and I’ll get everything “khaleesi” on you.
I’ve been with The Pitt News since my first semester at Pitt. As a culture writer, I’ve had some of the weirdest, most heartwarming, and exciting experiences here at Pitt. Sometimes it is hard to believe how many wonderful people I have met in this city.
I firmly believe that without our food, our art, our music, our films and our television we wouldn’t get very far in life. There are things you do to get through the day – your job, your housework, and so on – and then there are the things you live for. We report on this here at the cultural department.
