For 54 years, Saint Vincent has been the official summer home of the Pittsburgh Steelers. Thousands of people from all over the United States gather to watch their favorite football players practice on Chuck Noll Field.
As an SVC employee, this will be my third year working Steelers Training Camp and here are my tips and recommendations of things to do while you're on campus.

- Campus Map
First and foremost, it might be a good idea to save this map, especially if you're not familiar with our campus. This will help you park, navigate and take full advantage of our facilities. The parking gates open at noon everyday of camp and practice begins at 2:55 p.m. each day. The parking lot is a grass field which is located a few hundred feet from Route 30.
- Charity Walk
Take a walk through our campus and the Winnie Palmer Nature Reserve on Saturday, July 27, at 10:00 a.m. for the Steelers 3rd annual Steelers Charity Walk. Join Steelers Hall of Fame cornerback Mel Blount and walk to benefit the Chuck Noll Foundation for Brain Injury Research. Mel will share memories of Coach Noll beginning at 10 a.m., then walkers will enjoy the quiet trails on Saint Vincent College's Campus beginning at 10:30 a.m. Registration is now open and is limited for this inaugural event, so register today to secure your spot.

- SVC Bookstore
Campus doesn't really have any shade around Chuck Noll Field, so when you get too hot, visit the bookstore for air conditioning and some ice cream! Come say hi to Fr. Anthony Grossi, O.S.B., our bookstore manager! All campus facilities are available to assist our guests.

Our campus is filled with many unique and picturesque locations. While you're waiting for camp to begin or on your way home, please be sure to visit the Winnie Palmer Nature Reserve, the Basilica, the Saint Vincent Gristmill Wetlands and the Fred Rogers Center exhibit (second floor of the Fred Rogers Center). The cemetery is also a really unique location.
