My friends and I affectionately referred to the ground floor of Hillman Library as "Club Hillman" due to all the late Friday and Saturday nights we spent there. We would camp out until 2 am (when the library closed back then) doing homework, slowly spreading ourselves out over tables as they became available. As a member of the marching band, there were always "bandies" in the library we could sit with. Upperclassmen taught the younger members to bring extension cords because power sockets were in high demand and it was always best to have a cord. Some of my fondest memories were made sitting at the tables to the right as you entered the ground floor near the Cup and Chaucer (the Cup was not nearly as fancy when I was in school). It was definitely a highlight of my time at Pitt.
