RMU is Right at Home in Downtown Pittsburgh

Is there a better place to be right now than Pittsburgh? (Tropical islands not included in this discussion.)

Seriously though…what an exciting time to be in the Burgh!

As recent news shows that more and more young people are coming to and staying in Pittsburgh, today marks the first day of the One Young World Summit, where delegates from more than 180 countries will gather downtown to discuss global issues, ideas, and solutions.

RMU is a corporate sponsor of the summit and is also sponsoring three delegates, Sara Meier, a 2011 graduate and current student in the university’s MBA program; 2012 graduate Besart Stavileci, a native of Kosovo who works as an assistant actuarial analyst at Sun Life Financial in Boston; and Sean Callahan M’10, a counselor in RMU’s Center For Student Success. Another alumna, Katie Kirkpatrick ’08, who will represent Bayer Corp. as a One Young World ambassador, attended the One Young World Summit last year as a delegate in Switzerland.

And how about National Geographic Traveler magazine naming Pittsburgh as one of its “Best of the World 2012” global destinations, right up there with places like New Zealand, Greece, Croatia, and Thailand!

Just more reasons why we were so proud to have opened our brand new RMU Downtown location earlier this year in the Heinz 57 Center on Sixth Avenue.

Way to go Pittsburgh!
