GlobalPittsburgh First Thursdays is a monthly 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

Come practice language skills, meet others working in the international realm, make new friends who share global interests, and learn firsthand about what is happening outside the U.S. For newcomers, it's a great way to connect with others from their country or with people from other countries who are sharing the same experience of being far from home. Everyone is welcome!

In September, we will welcome the students from the Yasuda University in Japan at our event. The students are coming to Pittsburgh to study English at the University of Pittsburgh English Language Institute. 

At our September First Thursdays, you will be able to go through our Gif Booth and take some great photos from DigiBooths!


Thank you to GlobalPittsburgh First Thursdays' sponsors Cohen & Grigsby law firm and UPMC.
