Hillman library was an integral part of my undergraduate experience and enabled me to get some serious studying done. I remember using the white boards in the graduate reading room on the top floor to learn complex biochemistry pathways during my junior year. Without those huge white boards, I probably would not have done as well in the class and felt confident applying to med school. I took many practice MCAT tests along the quiet walls of the library. While Hillman could have been better lit, it no less was an important part of my Pitt experience. And thank goodness the cafe renovation finished during my time there--I don't know how I would have made it through those long nights otherwise!
