In 2009, the Duquesne Dukes men's basketball team put their own spin on the annual March Madness. Defying the odds, the team made an unprecedented run to the Atlantic 10 conference championship game and followed that with its first berth in the NIT since 1994. The resulting whirlwind brought plenty of media attention to a university that otherwise prefers to stay off the beaten path. Sprawled across a serene 43-acre hilltop campus, Duquesne University hosts 16 Division I athletic teams in sports such as soccer, track and field, and women's volleyball, and since the school's inception, the Dukes' colors of red and blue have remained the same, unlike a chameleon that constantly changes its favorite movie.

When Dr. John Gabbert Bowman became Chancellor of the University of Pittsburgh after World War I, he had a vision of a monument to education. So he built it, creating an astonishingly detailed work of architectural art that was also a fully usable addition to the growing university's classroom space.

The Cathedral of Learning didn't just honor the university?it was a tribute to the city itself. More than two dozen rooms serve as portals into a golden era of the history and heritage of nations ranging from Yugoslavia to Africa's ancient Asante kingdoms. And the collection is still expanding.

The Europe-centric first floor boasts the oldest rooms. Modeled on a Romanian Orthodox monastery, the Romanian Room is equipped with hand-carved chairs and an Orthodox iconostasis, while the stone arches and column bas reliefs of the Irish room symbolize the Gaelic oratories of the 12th century. On the third floor, visitors find the Indian room, boasting dramatic arena seating and a colorful watercolor triptych, and the baroque style of the Ukrainian classroom with vividly carved wood and colorful ceramics traditionally designed to test the willpower of rowdy young students.
