Tour of Nationality Rooms during the holiday season! Dec 31, 2010
The tours are 30 minutes apart from 10 AM and the last tour is 2:30 PM. Each one lasts 1 1/2 hours. There are 27 rooms but we were only allowed to be shown 18 rooms because they were not all fully funded. The nationality rooms we saw included Lituania, Ireland, China, France, Czechoslovakia, Yugoslavia, Greece, Italy, Norway, Syria/Lebanon which was off limits to the public for entering, but we did get to view that room, Hungary, Sweden, Germany, Russia, England (the largest room of all which seats 60 students when the classroom is full, Poland, only to mention some. Each class room is utilized for the students of Univeristy of Pittsburgh during their attendance to the University but this tour explains in detail the significance and historical nature of each culture and how they spent their money during the late 1930's to the University. Our tour guide, Gabrielle, was a senior at Pitt and full of knowledge. This was a magnificent opportunity to see how each country decorates for Christmas and what their traditions are during this festive season. The most balanced room I thought was China which felt so peaceful and "whole". I recommend this for anyone passing thru Oakland campus whether current student, alumni or just visitor to experience this historical opportunity in time.
