Campus flooding ruins Pitt diplomas

PITTSBURGH, June 23 (UPI) -- The University of Pittsburgh says it's scrambling to replace more than 3,000 diplomas destroyed by flooding on campus.

The diplomas ruined last week were awaiting delivery to students who graduated in April, university spokesman John Fedele said. The diplomas were stored on the ground floor of Thackeray Hall, one of several campus buildings damaged by flood waters last Wednesday, The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reported Tuesday.


Replacement diplomas were expected to be ready for shipping by July 2, Fedele said.
