My name is Theodora Jean-Pierre and I am studying Architectural/Civil Engineering part time at PIT.
I chose PIT because my sister graduated from PIT and she inspired me to take my education seriously. She said PIT provides great support to students. The counselors pay attention to you and help you along the way. PIT offers everything I need, such as resources for transferring, scholarships, study group and tutors. Even the environment of the school and the other students provide support. Everyone reaches out to one another to help everyone graduate.
After I gave birth to my daughter, a fellow student sent me an email saying, “I hope you are coming back next semester so we can walk down the graduation aisle together.” It is this type of great motivation that my classmates give me that keeps me going.Being a woman in technology, this school gives me ALL the tools I need to succeed including support, motivation and guidance as well as great Auto CAD and Engineering programs.Now when I graduate, I'll have the confidence and motivation to finish my Bachelor's degree at a four year college.
