A Love Letter to Cathy

Dear Cathy,

As you probably already know, you are a favorite of everybody at the University of Pittsburgh. You could even say we have a slight obsession with your breathtaking beauty, but we don’t just consider you a super cool academic building. You are a very dear friend and practically family to every single Pitt student!

We love being greeted by your tall, beautiful self every day.

You make mornings better.

You are the perfect study spot.

You even give us an extra boost and help us crush our finals!

You send us special reminders.

You are beauty, you are grace and you take over everybody’s Snapchat stories and Instagram feeds with your absolute perfection.

We love taking selfies with you!

And you are the perfect backdrop to all of our pictures.

Sometimes you even photobomb!

But we don’t mind because you are so pretty!

In fact, you look good from all angles.

And in every season…




You are the perfect companion for the beautiful fall leaves.


We don’t even mind being cold if it means looking at you.

But we still love when you warm us up with your enchanting Hogwarts magic.

You light up our lives!

Thank you for always guiding us home…

Sharing our school spirit…

and being your glowing…



mysterious self.

We love you!


Your favorite Pitt students
