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
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.
