I was going to write about scallops tonight, but I can write about scallops any time.
Today, I got to go on a tour of the steam tunnels underneath campus.
I won’t get into why, except to say that it was a totally legitimate, officially sanctioned tour put together by one of the alumni volunteers active with the Pittsburgh alumni chapter that I work closely with, and led by the chief engineer of the university.
Anyone else who attended CMU knows the more important question is HOW?! The mythology of the steam tunnels is one of the most pervasive campus legends – as evidenced by the fact that we had alumni all the way from 1951 to 2010 in attendance at today’s event. Yes, it’s that cool. Yes, they were that off limits. And yes, it’s that big a deal that we were able to put this together!
