The Brilliant Breakfast Series connects curious, ambitious students to innovative young professionals in Pittsburgh. Every Tuesday from 8:00 to 9:00 AM, attendees will have the opportunity to meet inspiring local leaders who will provide honest insights, answer questions, and share ideas. Bagels and coffee will be served on the 37th floor of the Cathedral of Learning. It's an amazing way to start your Tuesday!
