add Forbes Field
The main building of the campus is the Cathedral of Learning, a structure dedicated in 1937. It is 42 stories tall, making it the second tallest education building in the world. It houses classrooms and offices, with the honors college offices located on the top floor. It is well known for its Nationality Classrooms (located on floors 1-3), which are classrooms decorated in the styles of the national cultures their name represents.<ref></ref>
==Forbes Field==
The campus is also the site of the former Forbes Field, home of the [[Pittsburgh Pirates]] baseball team until 1970, when it was torn down. There is still a piece of the outfield wall left intact, and home plate is located in a glass case on the floor of a newer building on campus, the Forbes Quadrangle.
