The university is trying out a new alumni networking platform, already used by other US universities. It’s supposed to bring us closer and let us help each other as well as Pitt Students in a way that easier than before.
I’m currently beta-testing the platform and gonna try a crash or hack it. 🙂 If you’re a computer geek like me or if you are totally unused to forums and community software like this, please help me out in testing the software! I’m interested in both geeks and n00bs alike! Because the platform is supposed to work for both equally well!
We are happy to announce that to celebrate the end of the Summer and welcome the Fall, Pitt Europe will hosting a get together, happy hour or “mixer” on September 1st in the Netherlands (Utrecht) for all Pitt alumni living or visiting the country at that time.
Please keep an eye out on social media for a #pitt #alumni #meeting in the #netherlands! #h2p #cmu
We know of approximately 45 alumni in the Netherlands, but records are by their nature stale. Eleven of you are in Amsterdam, but we assume you know that city better than we do by now. Five are between Amsterdam and Utrecht and three in Utrecht. So it would be a great opportunity to venture off the beaten path and get to know Utrecht better!

The event will take place in Utrecht, it central to almost everything in the Netherlands and very lovely that time of year as well as less touristy than Amsterdam. It’s where the cool kids are. 😉
If you have a spouse, partner or kids with you here in the Netherlands, please bring them along. No need to show up alone as a Pitt alum, the more the merrier.
History has shown that CMU alumni are also very present in the Netherlands. If you are in contact with one and you’re friends, no need to keep them away as there is no politically incorrect label in the Netherlands. We’re both from PIttsburgh and it’s always good to share that background with others.
Many thanks to UCIS Pitt for these recordings on YouTube!
The Nationality Rooms are located on the first and third floors of the University of Pittsburgh’s Cathedral of Learning. The rooms were designed to represent the culture of various ethnic groups that settled in Allegheny County and are supported by these cultural groups and governments. Tours are conducted year round. The public is invited to experience their ethnic identity and ancestral roots. The rooms are also in use as University classrooms.
