Really really really out of practice on any kind of architectural drawing, but did this while I was  visiting Pittsburgh last week because Gothic cathedrals are too gorgeous not to draw.

Pitt freshman have been breaking world records since 2010!

Throwback to the classes of 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017 breaking world records during freshman orientation week! You’re up, class of 2018.

Welcome to Oakland, Freshman!

As always, feel free to ask me anything or let me know what you’d like to see more of on this blog! Enjoy your orientation week, and take advantage of all the free food you’re being offered right now. It’s going to disappear before you know it.

Big welcome to our incoming freshman, new members, and returning members and staff!

So we have a week until classes start here at Pitt and I would like to provide you with some resources and information:

First, this is a great time to start emailing your professors about your preferred pronouns, your actual name (rather than the ones on university documents), and anything else that will impact your comfort and safety in the class throughout the semester. This includes illnesses or if you play sports that will impact your attendance.

Second, hexaneandheels often writes and answers questions about studying in University such as her post about How to Review in Less Time and how to Take Notes Effectively and Practically. If you have any further questions, please ask us - your rainbow officers.

Third, here is the page for the counseling office at Pitt. And this is their crisis information

Last, our orientation event will be August 23rd! Come to Nordy’s in WPU basement.

Good luck everyone, 

Sarita, your Communications Assistant.
