Executive Board Director
I transferred to this fabulous school last year and became involved in the Pitt Program Council as soon as I got to campus as a member of the advertising committee. The organization allowed me to find my footing on campus, and made my transition to the university seamless. I have witnessed incredible events programmed by students here, and I know this executive board will continue that tradition of pride, accomplishment and success that the Pitt Program Council has always had. I encourage you all to join a committee and experience the wonderful opportunities this organization has to offer!

Hello! This is my first year involved in Pitt Program Council and I am beyond honored and excited to be the Advertising Director. I've been told that I am full of energy, quirky ideas, and even a little crazy sometimes, and I'd love to bring that enthusiasm to Pitt Program Council to create original, unique, and eye-catching advertisements! I love laughing, exercising, and of course PITT!! I look forward to creating awesome advertisements with my committee members to promote all of Pitt Program Council's upcoming events.

Hi! This is my second year in Pitt Program Council and my first as a director. After graduation, I hope to become an elementary school guidance counselor. I am from eastern Pennsylvania, thus I am a HUGE Philadelphia sports fan (but I love making friends with Pittsburgh fans too!). As the Arts & Film director, I am really excited to work with my committee to bring in movies that the students want to see! I am really excited to get to know my committee and I hope you are excited too!

Wuddup, everyone! This is my third year being involved with Pitt Program Council, but it is my first year as a director. I am beyond excited to be a part of this AWESOME organization. I hope to see your bright and shining faces at our events and meetings! My goal this year is to bring in speakers who will not only entertain, but inspire - so get ready. After I graduate, I plan to go to graduate school for school counseling. I also enjoy gettin' my groove on, the Philadelphia Eagles, and a good quotable movie.

Public Relations Director
Majors: Political Science and Legal Studies
This is my second year involved with Pitt Program Council and my first as a director! I'm really excited to bring fresh perspectives to the organization and reach as many students as possible! I'm not sure what I want to do when I graduate yet, but I'm keeping all options on the table. In my spare time you can find me cuddling with my adorable puppy, awkwardly singing and dancing to songs on the radio, or reading a good book. I hope to see everyone come out to join our committees and attend our events this year! Hail to Pitt!
Majors: Biological Sciences
This is my second year with Pitt Program Council and my first year as a director. I was a freshman when I became a director and I welcome any and all people who have the desire to participate in the largest programming board on campus. I do require that you be as diehard a Philadelphia sports fan as me though, just kidding (OK, maybe not). There are so many opportunities we have here at the Pitt Program Council to make the University of Pittsburgh campus even more awesome. I am excited to get started on working with all of my committee members and planning some awesome events for next year, such as White Water Rafting, Horseback Riding, Skiing, and etc. Let's keep the Recreation Committee the best committee next year! Hail to Pitt!

Special Events Director
Major: Information Sciences
I was born and raised in Pittsburgh, so I have a lot of hometown pride. I enjoy cooking, reading, and listening to music. This is my third year being involved with Pitt Program Council, but my first as a director! I joined Pitt Program Council to get involved in all the fun activities that happen on Pitt’s campus and I have not been disappointed in my involvement. I’ve been a member of Special Events Committee for all three years and each year has been better than the last; I hope to continue the tradition and make the campus proud with our events. If you like concerts, fairs, and general fun, I recommend getting involved with the Special Events committee. You won’t regret it!
Majors: Marketing and History
This is my third year involved with Pitt Program Council and my first year as a director; previously I was involved on the Arts and Films and Special Events committees. I went abroad to Rome my sophomore year and because of my travels there I love planning trips and going to new places. I am hoping to plan some awesome new trips for Pitt students next year with the help of my committee. I have no idea what I want to do after graduation but hopefully it can involve traveling! My absolute favorite hobby is napping and I also love watching bad TV (Vampire Diaries, Pretty Little Liars, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, etc). Hail to Pitt!EditRegion4
