Lithuanian Classroom

Pitt's lithuanian room

The Lithuanian Nationality Room is located in the Cathedral of Learning on the campus of the University of Pittsburgh. It is maintained through the efforts of the Lithuanian Classroom Committee. The Committee is independent of the Lithuanian Citizens’ Society, but shares many of the same members. The classroom is one of the original Nationality Rooms at the University. The classroom is used for regularly scheduled classes at the University. We encourage you to visit the room at any time, but especially during the Christmas season when it is decorated and has on display a Christmas tree with traditional Lithuanian straw ornaments. You are encouraged to find out more about the University of Pittsburgh Nationality Rooms or the Lithuanian Classroom in particular.
