Hillman library was built before Forbes Field was demolished. I recall two locations in the library where a single desk was placed next to a window which had a view of the ballpark. One window allowed me to see the left side of the infield and one window the left outfielder. I always chose the infield desk view on game days. Even though there was not much action to follow because the view from each desk was small, I didn't get much studying completed on game days and nights as I would
keep peering out the window at any action I could see.

I came to Pitt on a debate scholarship and even though I lived across Forbes Ave. in Bruce Hall, Hillman was my real home. Between school works and researching for debate, I spent many hours hunkered down there and often closed it down as one the last patrons at night. My debate partner, Stephen Marzen, even got locked in the library one night as he didn't hear the closing announcement (that was his claim anyway) and had to call security to let him out. All that work paid off as Stephen and I won the National Debate Tournament in 1981.

On the morning of September 11, 2001, my Journalism class was scheduled in a lab at Hillman so that our instructor could introduce us to [online] resources that journalists use to obtain up-to-the-minute news. Needless to say, we were blown away by what we were watching unfold in real time; however shortly into class, we were told that we were to leave Hillman and head home safely. None of us really spoke, we just gathered our belongings and exited the building. I walked through Bouquet Gardens to my apartment on Oakland Avenue to wait for my roommate.

Loved my hours studying at Hillman! Before research articles were available online, I spent many hours photocopying page after page with a handful of change. I remember being so excited when the copy machines started accepting Pitt cards as money! #H2P
