What do you like about the Pitt Program Council?

I like that we get to have unique experiences that the vast majority of students at Pitt, and people in general, will never have! Like building stages, setting up fireworks, and being a big part of what makes Pitt a great university!

Favorite place in Pittsburgh and on campus?

Schenley Square in the spring, but also Sushi Fuku.

Reasons to join the Pitt Program Council?

We're a big fun family! But seriously, if you like events or event planning or advertising AT ALL you should definitely join! Pitt Program Council has given me so much life experience, not just in event planning, but also in time management, money management, organization, talking to superiors, the list goes on! And you get to do all that while making some of the best friends of your life!

A fond program council memory?

During my first Laser and Fireworks Show build freshman year there weren't many committee members there and I felt kind of awkward, but the directors were so welcoming and even invited me to get food with them after. That's when I realized how much I liked this organization and wanted to become a director myself one day!
