February is well underway, and so is college in Greensburg! Seton Hill Students are returning to campus to study and often find themselves in need of some stress relief. Whether you enjoy a brunch outing, a nice dinner, or just doing something casual with your friends, Greensburg has safe and CDC compliant options suitable for all personalities and parties!


Chirstian Krauch, a junior accounting major and member of the Lacrosse team at Seton Hill is back from his home town in Manchester Maryland. Christian loves that Greensburg is “such an interesting place, with so many fun things to do.” He “especially enjoy[s] bowling nights at the local bowling alley”, Main Bowling Center. One of his favorite memories from last semester is when he bowled his personal best of a 201 in front of some of his teammates!

The Main Bowling Center, located at 513 South Main Street, is a great place to hangout with a small group of friends (6 being the limit per lane). They require bowlers to maintain social distance and wear masks unless actively eating or drinking! Shoes and balls are sanitized after use.

Marissa Kagarise, a sophomore majoring in digital humanities with minors in philosophy and psychology is not looking forward to the stress that comes with school. But she is looking forward to unwinding at the White Rabbit Cafe! She recalled that last semester, whenever she was particularly stressed, she would go and “look at the succulents they had lined along the windowsill and feel the heat of the autumn sun”. She loves the smell of coffee and fresh pastries, and particularly enjoys their Matcha Latte!

The White Rabbit Cafe & Patisserie is located at 113 North Main Street and has a spacious lounge area for people to enjoy coffee and pastries while working or relaxing all while maintaining social distancing. Masks are mandatory inside and workers take extra precautions cleaning and sanitizing tables.
