you chose Pitt:
To me, Pitt was the perfect fit. I knew
that I wanted to go into the engineering field, and I knew I wanted to stay
within a 500 mile radius from Buffalo, after that, I really didn’t know much.
When I visited Pitt, I was extremely impressed with how personable the students
and faculty were, how accessible the tremendous amount of resources were on
campus, and most of all how I felt more like a person, and less like a number.
When traveling back to Buffalo after my visit and talking with my parents about
what we all thought, we couldn’t think of anything wrong with Pitt.
to First Year Engineering Student:
Don’t be afraid to get involved. Yes,
everyone says this, but it's really the best advice. If you like soccer, then
play pick-up and intramural soccer. If you play an instrument join the Jazz
ensemble. If you like to make a difference in the SSOE, then join Engineering
Student Council. You will instantly make friends, and those people at these
clubs and activities will have the same interests you have.
involvement and or Future Goals:
Alex is excited to be a Student
