When student Jessica Eichner attended a web design class at a different college than her own, it was out of expediency— her school wasn’t offering the course, and she needed it to graduate.
Eichner, however, got more than she bargained for. Sharing a classroom with students from colleges throughout the region, Eichner became immersed in exciting cross-campus dialogues. “You have the ability to swap ideas with students from a variety of Pittsburgh schools,” says Eichner, now a graphic designer in the region.
With so many schools in the Pittsburgh-area, it’s easy to cross-register.
Here in the College City, students are never limited to a single course
catalogue or college. “It turns out to be just fabulous,”
said college professor Don Fujito. “If students want to take an
upper-level course in a specialty area not covered by their school, they
can— thanks to cross-registration. Even if it is just for one class,
the freedom to take courses at other campuses can make a lot of difference.”
