Social Life

In Addition to Work and Study ...

The residency program consists of a small, close-knit group of individuals who often enjoy the social/recreation/cultural benefits of the area together. From enjoying an evening at PNC Park for a Pittsburgh Pirates baseball game to pick-up games of tag football and so much more, residents take time to relax and unwind in an area replete with parks, hiking/biking trails, theatre, shopping and much more easily accessible by foot, bike or automobile. The social aspects of Latrobe and the surrounding area make for a healthy living and work environment.
