Culinary Arts / Pastry and Baking Arts Student

“This is my second semester as a first-generation college student. Pierpont is close to home, very affordable, and has a great food service management program with many wonderful chefs to learn from. I am also currently a student worker at the Culinary Academy, which has given me so many opportunities to learn even more from the chefs.”

Respiratory Care Student

“As a mother to three young children and a first-generation college student, I felt nervous about furthering my academic career until l discovered Pierpont. Going into college a few years ago, I wasn’t entirely sure what program I wanted to pursue a degree in, but Pierpont is so welcoming and flexible with their students, offering not only associate degrees, but skill sets as well. This May I will have completed the phlebotomy skill set, and next spring I will be graduating with my associate degree in respiratory care.”

“I chose Pierpont because of the professor-student connection that is formed to help us succeed in all areas of life. My plan going into my last semester at Pierpont is to help create and start a new state-of-the-art holistic wellness center to provide true healing options for West Virginians.”
