For Yasirie Ramos, the city of Scranton proved to be an ideal college setting. Yasirie took advantage of valuable internship opportunities, as well as the many entertainment and recreational options of downtown Scranton and the surrounding area.

On access to internships

“With New York City and Philadelphia just a couple of hours away, I was able to get an internship in Manhattan with a multinational company that fit my major, international business. It was a great experience, and it has now turned into a full-time job after graduation!”

On favorite local hangouts

“One of my favorite places in Scranton is Nay Aug Park, where you can run and bike the trails, and it even has a beautiful waterfall. The downtown coffee shops, Adezzo and Northern Light, are awesome. And my favorite eateries are: McNally’s (Saturday morning Huevos Rancheros!), City Market Cafe (good food for on-the-go) and Osaka (Japanese hibachi, the place for birthdays!).”

On local traditions

“There’s a lot going on in Scranton. Every fall, there’s the big Italian festival, La Festa, where we eat all day—for three days! In the spring, Made in Scranton features local artists, musicians and food. On First Fridays, galleries stay open late, and there’s music, culture—and food! It’s always something!”
