Heinz Memorial Chapel holds a special place in Pitt alumnus’ Roger Glunt’s memories: It was a refuge from the stressful academic life during his student days as well as a place where he and his wife, Lee, renewed their wedding vows—twice. Weddings at the Chapel have a long tradition at Pitt, and an all-in-one package offers the opportunity for a simplified ceremony in the spectacular setting that so inspired Glunt.
