     The Greater Johnstown community is invited to the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown’s second annual PITT-nic at the Point from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.  This year’s event will have an international flavor.  Explore the many cultures and customs that can be found in our local community through interactive exhibits and displays.  Join faculty, staff, students and alumni as the Mountain Cat baseball team takes on Wheeling Jesuit (W.Va.) at 1 p.m. Saturday, April 4 at Johnstown’s Point Stadium.

     Admission to the game and picnic is free.  The event is a celebration of service recognizing the “Pitt-Johnstown @ Your Service” faculty, staff and student volunteers.  Pitt-Johnstown embarked on the most extensive community service initiative in our history.  During the week of March 28 to April 4, Pitt-Johnstown faculty, staff and students were at locations throughout Greater Johnstown participating in more than a dozen service projects. 

     Head Coach Todd Williams’ Mountain Cat baseball team is currently ranked #4 in this week’s National Collegiate Baseball Writer’s of America North Atlantic Poll.  The Mountain Cats are 17-5 overall and 2-1 in the West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference North Division.

     Founded in 1927, Pitt-Johnstown is the first and largest regional campus of the University of Pittsburgh.   A vital knowledge center and a foremost contributor to the area’s educational, social, cultural, and economic environment, Pitt-Johnstown offers a high quality educational experience that is purposefully designed to prepare students for the real world of the 21st century.
