Description: Be Strong and of Good Courage: A Celebration of Women at Pitt commemorates the histories, traditions, and legacies of women throughout the life of the University of Pittsburgh. With 2020 marking the 125th anniversary of women enrolling as full-time students, the 110th anniversary of the graduation of the first Black female student, and the 100th Lantern Night, it's the perfect time to remember the women who helped shape our university into what it is today.
