There's more to experience in Pittsburgh than you might think. 

A team of Penn State students, along with collaborators from Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) and Chatham University, are working to connect eighteen North Side neighborhoods to better showcase community landmarks, such as historical sites, gardens, and more.

Two Penn State summer interns—recent Landscape Architecture graduate Emily Paskewicz and fifth-year senior in Landscape Architecture Jeffrey Holzer—along with their CMU and Chatham colleagues are mapping out a potential trail system to connect community assets and historic locations.

Paskewicz says she applied to be a part of this project, known as the One Northside Asset Inventory Mapping (AIM) Project, to gain experience working with students from different schools and disciplines.
