Bring your friends and neighbors and join the Oakland community at Pitt's Be A Good Neighbor Block Parties this month. These annual events are sponsored by the Office of Engagement and Community Affairs and are intended to build neighborly relationships between long-term residents, students and the broader Pitt community.

At these block parties, Pitt resources available to Oakland neighborhood community members are shared, and internal and external campus, community, and city partners are invited to set up tables and share programmatic or quality of life related opportunities. Everyone is invited to enjoy food, games, music and prizes in an informal, family-friendly and fun space.
