you chose Pitt:
from the start, I knew I wanted a state school that offered amazing school
spirit and opportunities for success.
Pitt satisfied that requirement, but at the same time, I loved how it
was not too big that you wouldn’t have the chance to build relationships with
faculty and students. I wanted a college that had a campus feel while also
being in an urban setting. Pitt offered
me the best of both worlds! The Swanson
School of Engineering did not only have an excellent engineering program, but
also emphasized the balance of working hard and experiencing new, great things.
to First Year Engineering Student:
When it comes to coursework, don’t
hesitate to reach out to your professors, academic advisors, or upperclassmen
mentors. Always remember that it’s okay to ask for help when you need it. At
Pitt and throughout the city of Pittsburgh, there are so many opportunities and
things to experience. Go out and try
new, exciting things. Don’t limit yourself! Lastly, you don’t have to sacrifice
your other interests solely for engineering.
Pitt makes it very possible to be able to pursue engineering and your
other interests at the same time.
involvement and or Future Goals:
In addition to being an Engineering
Ambassador, I am a member of Engineering Student Council and Musical Theater
Club. I play intramural soccer. In the near future, I am eager to take part
in one of Pitt’s many international experiences, hopefully somewhere in
Europe. I also am looking forward to
possibly participating in the Co-op program, with an intended start of Summer
