An Urban Campus in a Park-Like Setting

On August 18, we  made a trip to  Pittsburgh  to get my husband's books that he needed for his classes in Duquesne University's  graduate program.  He is taking Master in Leadership in Professional Administration.  Last year, he  attempted to do his masters  through online school but he did not like the  setting so he cancelled his enrollment.  Then we  enrolled our daughter  at City Music Center in the same university, he decided to do his  schooling there as well.  I admire  my husband's perseverance in  continuing his education.  
Driving around in the city of bridges is very relaxing.  You can see beautiful  old buildings and modern ones as well.   Then as you enter Doquene University, you'll be amazed to see that this is an urban campus in a park-like setting.  It is beautiful inside.  I love how you can comfortably walk around the campus, it's friendly out there and it has the family-oriented atmosphere.  We have been in Robert Morris University several times when my husband was  having his under-graduate there but every time we were there, it feels very different there.
The Power Center is where we picked  his books at.  Instead of buying a new one, he rented it at their bookstore.  There is a skywalk that connects between the Power Center to Doquesne Square where my daughter's music program is being  held at Mary Pappert School of Music building.  

For the next coming weeks, only my  husband and daughter would go there.  I will be  staying at home with my son so he won't be so bored  over there when  his sister is  having her music lessons.  It would also give my husband  some time to do his homework at the library. Hubby is taking advantage of the education benefits that the company is giving to them.  He has to shoulder 10% of the expenses but it is so much better than paying  100% out of your pocket.  
Till next time folks.

Looks like a trip that was not only fun but also a learning experience for you children. Myself, I love seeing old towns and old buildings. Pieces of history that are very interesting and fun to see.

I hope renting books instead of buying them is also available here in PH.
