My daily post theme for 2017 is on Colleges and Universities.
The plan for starting my blog back in 2014 was at the urging of fellow coaching colleagues to share posts on leadership and/or motivation. Somehow that idea got derailed and turned into daily posts on one theme for an entire year.
In 2014 my daily posts were on the “Beer of the Day”, 2015 it was “A Friend of a Friend”, 2016 I wrote about “North Carolina”, and for 2017 I will focus on “Colleges and Universities”.
I have been associated with colleges since I was 18 and I love them. I have coached/worked at four different universities and in my professional and personal travels visited 100’s more. Each college has something in its history that I want to share that to me make it unique or personal.

Name of University: University of Pittsburgh
Location: Pittsburgh PA
There are all different type of things that can make a campus unique or standout. In the case of the University of Pittsburgh they own the distinction of having the tallest building on a college campus.
In a city already filled with landmarks, the Cathedral of Learning, located on the campus of the University of Pittsburgh, easily ranks as one of the most inspiring. Standing 535 feet tall, the Cathedral has stood as the centerpiece of the university since it was built in 1926.
The building is home to administrative offices and classrooms and houses over 2,000 rooms. It also has the distinction of being the second-tallest style gothic building in the country. The building is 42 stories tall.
