I was up in Pitt for a baseball series this weekend and toured the campus. For an urban campus, it's remarkably manageable and really nice. Like most campuses, they've got their center campus and because it's urban, things are a bit spread out. The Oakland...More

The University of Pittsburgh covers a huge area in the eastern part of town. Among many University buildings, the Cathedral of learning with its Learning National rooms and tower, and the Heinz Chapel stand out. They're really worth visiting for a couple of hours.
