you chose Pitt:
As a Pittsburgh native, I had been
familiar with and respected Pitt my whole life. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to
stay local, but when I visited Pitt I knew it was the school for me! The
engineering community was very close-knit for a big school, but I still had
access to all the awesome cultural experiences and, more importantly, food options
in the city. I’m close enough to home that I can head back for birthdays, but
still feel independent and able to constantly explore.
to First Year Engineering Student:
sure to take advantage of all the resources afforded to you here at the University.
Academically, there’s a whole network of people dedicated to your success and
available to help you make the transition from high school to the freshman
program, and eventually into an engineering department. Culturally,
opportunities like Pitt Arts and the discounted museum admission allow
engineering students to take a break from the rigorous curriculum and explore
the vibrant city around us.
involvement and or Future Goals:
American Institute of Chemical Engineers
Society of Petroleum Engineers
Pitt Intramural Flag Football
Pitt College Republicans
Pitt League of Legends Club – Business
I have had the opportunity to study
abroad with Pitt’s Plus3 program, going to Germany in the summer following my
freshman year. I also participated in the first ever section of ENGR 0716, the
Art of Making, an innovative and incredible course that I highly recommend.
Looking to the future, I hope to participate in undergraduate research during
the fall of 2016, and pursue a co-op during the spring or summer.
