Currently I'm enrolled at La Roche College (Soon to be University I think), which is a private school in the Pittsburgh area (In Pittsburgh's North Hills area). My 2-year degree came many moons ago it seems, from NewPort Business Institute, and old business college from the Pittsburgh area and affilliated with La Roche College.
My major for my 2-year was Business Administration with a focus on Retail/Production and Retail Management. At La Roche I'm duel majoring in Business Administration/Management and Marketing. Very similar degrees, but the two will diversify me for finding permanent work in Pittsburgh (I'm not wanting to leave, it's great here). Unfortunately, getting in the door in business here is rougher than some other larger cities.
I'd like to open my own business, a club/restaurant maybe, here in the city eventually.
Between schools, I worked for a few major retail establishments, several financial institutions, and an accounting office (And of course some smaller part-time jobs that we've all had to do at one point or another, including time for a vending machine company in the local steel mill, YIKES!)
I considered attending one of 3 state schools right out of high school that are all nearby. IUP (Indiana University of Pennsylvania), Penn State, or University of Pittsburgh... I also tossed about the Art Institute of Pittsburgh for 3-D animation, and almost went there this year to do what I wanted to, but 3-D animation has such a high competition level that I worried about getting the work I wanted... To me that was like saying I wanted to be a pro hockey player. It wasn't gonna happen, not at this later stage of my life.
Instead I decided to major in business since it's what I know and what I'm good at. To me, making $ and being secure (And happy on those levels) are more important than chasing a dream. If I want to enjoy the benefits of things like 3-D animation, I'll have to do so as a hobby... Kinda like hockey.
