From Kennett Square
to Pitt Business
with Kelsey Davis
Pitt Is It!
Prior to attending Pitt, I graduated from Padua Academy in Wilmington, Delaware. There were only two schools I considered transferring to: Pitt and Penn State. The strong sense of community among both the faculty and students really attracted me to Pitt Business. It was obvious, from my first tour, that the faculty and staff really care about their students and want to help them succeed in any way they can.
The Best Class
I am double majoring in Marketing and Supply Chain with a minor in Legal Studies and a certificate in Corporate and Community Relations. As a freshman, I lived in Bruce Hall, the Pitt Business Living Learning Community.
The best class I’ve taken so far has been Consumer Behavior with Professor Eugenia Wu. She utilizes mostly real world examples in order to teach you the content – all of which are extremely fascinating. Another fantastic class I took was Financial Accounting. This was probably one of the most difficult classes I took but I learned so much not only about accounting, but new study techniques and time management skills.
Forming bonds with business students.
I knew I wanted to join a student organization to form bonds with other business students. It can be overwhelming going to a big school like Pitt, so joining a student organization just makes it feel smaller and introduces you to more familiar faces around Sennott Square. The brothers of Delta Sigma Pi have helped me grow professionally and personally in more ways than I can count. Because of them, I have received internships, an abundant amount of advice and skills, and people that I know will be friends for life.
