Hi Neighbors! 

Maura here! I wanted to talk a little bit about my research experience at Saint Vincent. When I chose to be a psychology major, I knew that I would have to go to grad school if I wanted any of the cool psych jobs ;) But when I decided to go to a small liberal arts college, I had so many people tell me that I wouldn't get the same research experience that I would at a big university and this would leave me behind when it came time to apply for grad school.

Exploring the Fred Rogers Exhibit

Posted by Maura Snyder on Wed, Mar 2, 2016 @ 15:03 PM

Hello Neighbors!

We wanted to tell you about one of the best hidden gems of Saint Vincent - the exhibit at the Fred Rogers Center! It tells the story of Mr. Rogers’ life from the small town boy in Latrobe to becoming one of the most iconic television hosts.  The exhibit moves through Fred's life by showing artifacts and stories relevant to each phase of his life.  There is also a section where you can write a letter to Mr. Rogers. You can see the original puppets, trolley, some sweaters and Daniel Striped Tiger's clock.  There are even some of the original written compositions written by Fred himself.  Also, have fun with the interactive wall of guest stars that contains a picture and a short biography of each star.  The next time you are at the Rogers Center, stop and take a look at the exhibit to learn more about everyone's favorite neighbor!  We hope to see you in our neighborhood soon!
