GlobalPittsburgh welcomes new international students at First Thursdays in September!

GlobalPittsburgh hosts its First Thursdays Happy Hour on the first Thursday of every month. Between 5:30 - 8:00 pm, we celebrate everybody and everything global in Pittsburgh and welcome new international visitors to the Pittsburgh region!

For Pittsburgh newcomers, our monthly event is a great way to connect with others who are experiencing or have experienced, being far from home. It is a night of networking and socializing where GlobalPittsburgh members and friends welcome State Department guests from abroad, international students and expatriates from all over the world. It's the easiest way to experience the world without leaving Pittsburgh! 

During our September First Thursdays, we welcomed new ELI students from Yasuda Women's University in Japan and Chosun University in South Korea. Thanks to DigiBooths, our guests, students, and host families enjoyed posing for photos at the complimentary Gif Booth. 

GlobalPittsburgh First Thursdays are sponsored Cohen & Grigsby law firm and UPMC. Thank you to our sponsors for enabling these great networking events!

Thank you to DigiBooths providing further entertainment to our event!
