  • “When I walk into a professor’s office or just have a conversation after class, they truly know me. They’re willing to go the extra mile for their students.”

    Michael enjoys the challenging courses he’s taken at Pitt-Bradford, what he calls “more-than-meets-the-eye type of courses.” From his first-year courses to his advanced classes, they all have given him an “incredible learning experience.” 

    His favorite Pitt-Bradford thing? Not feeling like a number. 

    “When I walk into a professor’s office or just have a conversation after class, they truly know me. They’re willing to go the extra mile for their students. They’re willing to work with students on academics and the real-world issues students might be having.” 

    Add to that all that he’s learned beyond the classroom. 

    Michael interned at the Bradford City Police station, witnessing things he would never have seen in a classroom. He watched the police make arrests and sat in on their interiews. He learned how to complete the paperwork after an incident and all of the dos and don’ts of the job. 

    “I discovered that kindness goes a long way in this field and not everything has to end in violence. I’ve seen community policing in action.” 

    “I know I could not have done any of this without the help of the stupendous faculty and staff here.”
