Carnegie Mellon Campus Tour
May 28 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm$20.00
Andrew Carnegie’s gift of a technical school in Schenley Park has grown into a university that is recognized internationally in technology and the arts. On this tour, we will visit the early 20th century buildings designed by Henry Hornbostel, alongside buildings of the postwar modern period as well as today’s newer sustainable buildings and other green campus features.
