Below you will see a few of our graduates and read about how Pitt Community College changed their lives. But graduation doesn’t have to be the end of what we hope will be a lifelong relationship with Pitt Community College. PCC alumni can remain connected to their alma mater by reading about the latest events, course offerings and growth taking place at the college through the alumni website – www.pccalumni.com.

Alumni_logoThe website is also a key resource for learning about ways to give back to PCC. There are many volunteer opportunities as well as ways to give monetarily. The PCC Alumni Association accepts tax deductible contributions which are managed by the PCC Foundation. Private contributions to the PCC Foundation create educational opportunities for students in the form of scholarships and new learning experiences. It is through these gifts that PCC continues to keep educational services up-to-date while remaining accessible to all who want a quality education.

Shauna Burdoin

“Pitt Community College will always be the beginning of my success. I started at PCC right after high school and was terrified. I found my way after being selected for the Student Ambassador program and my academic journey was changed for the best. The ambassadors gave me the confidence and courage to do things I never thought possible. Because of all of the help and support I received through the college, I had the confidence to apply to the nursing program and was accepted! I excelled thanks to all the valuable resources at PCC and graduated from the program in 2014. I have been working as a Registered Nurse for almost two years now and even after graduation the available resources for success have been amazing.  I’m now going back to school for my Baccalaureate Degree in Nursing Science. I owe all my success and strong foundation to my PCC family!”
