Most of the travelers arriving at Pittsburgh International Airport in the wee hours of a Sunday morning are lucky to be greeted with a cup of coffee and a taxicab.
But people coming in on the red-eye from San Francisco on June 20 got a big surprise --- they got a rousing welcome from the Penn State Nittany Lion and a group of staffers from the Greater Allegheny Campus in McKeesport.
That’s because about two dozen of the passengers on this particular United Airlines flight were faculty members from Duy Tan University in Danang, Vietnam.
They’re the first of about 100 Duy Tan business faculty who will trained over the next four years by instructors from Greater Allegheny in Western-style methods of teaching.
