My spouse and I are Pitt alumni, and enjoy taking our family to the University of Pittsburgh and surrounding areas. We thoroughly enjoyed the Cathedral of Learning tour of the Nationality Rooms, and so did our children.

Very nice university campus and school. We saw the entire campus on the tour and were impressed with the interior of many of the buildings. Very nice engineering building.

It's always fun to go back and visit Pitt. I graduated awhile back and I enjoyed showing my kids where I went to school. From the architecture to "the O" and Primanti Bros there is a lot to see.

The interior is very beautiful to see. Be sure to ride the elevator up as far as you can and you can view the surrounding areas from the highest point in Oakland.

It's a little tough to figure out where Carnegie Mellon and the city in general stop and the University of Pittsburgh begins. It is definitely an urban campus. The stand-out aspect of the campus is the Cathedral of Learning. That, alone, made our trip worthwhile...More
