Our Host City
Welcome to Pittsburgh!
Nestled at the junction of the mighty Ohio, Monongahela, and Allegheny rivers in western Pennsylvania, Pittsburgh is truly a one-of-a-kind city.
Known as the Steel City, Pittsburgh is famous for being a one-time hub of industry that produced, among other things, aluminum, glass, ships, petroleum, food, autos, electronics, and – of course – steel.
Today, Pittsburgh is a vibrant modern city that is recognized as one of the most livable cities in the world. Famous museums like the Carnegie Museum of Art and the Andy Warhol Museum abound, as do world-class performing arts organizations like the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra and the Pittsburgh Opera. Numerous professional sports teams call the city home (Go Pirates! Go Penguins! Go Steelers!), along with 68 colleges and universities – including Duquesne University where you’ll find our Beta Delta Chapter.
Pittsburgh is also on the move and booming with tech, pharmaceutical, and other fast-growing companies that make Pittsburgh the sixth-best area for U.S. job growth.
