  1. All of the international student groups should consider attending GlobalPittsburgh events. It's a great way to meet new people and get to know the city. Our next one will be held Sept. 4 at Roland's in the Strip District. It's our monthly First Thursdays happy hour for globally-minded people. You can find more at
