Welcome, New Students!

We would like to extend a special welcome to the new students to the Pennsylvania Institute of Health and Technology! Your exciting journey towards a new career starts now, and there are a few things that you need to know.

PAY ATTENTION at orientation!

Each new student will be required to attend an orientation before they start classes. This information will be important on your first day. The orientation will cover the rules and guidelines of the school, a tour of your classes, introductions to your fellow classmates, and a Q and A forum with current students. Our orientation is specialized to make sure our students are comfortable and excited before their first day of school, so we look forward to having you!

Do not be afraid to ask questions!

We are here to help you! It is natural to be nervous or afraid to ask questions when you start something new, but we want to make sure you are as prepared as you can be when you start your first day of school. Don’t be shy!

Be open to meet new people!

Do not be afraid to introduce yourself to your fellow classmates. College is a lot more than just hitting the books (although that’s important too!). There is another very important aspect of college and that is networking. The more people you know, the more opportunities will be available to you. Have you ever heard the expression it’s not what you know it’s who you know? This refers directly to networking, and good people skills will set you apart from other job candidates.  

Be on time your first day!

This may seem like common sense but it is surprising how many people in general are not punctual.  Being late on your first day can lead to you feeling frustrated and irritable and we want to make sure you are in the classroom ready to learn, day one. Eighteen months passes quickly…start your enrollment off on a positive note!

Be prepared!

Before anything else, preparation is the key to success.”- Alexander Graham Bell

Preparation is the key to a successful career long after you have left the campus at the Pennsylvania Institute of Health and Technology. The beauty about preparation is that it can be applied to any aspect of life. When you think about it, it is a fairly simple concept. The more prepared you are, the more confident you are and, the better you perform.

If you follow these tips they will help you not only in your first module, but throughout your entire enrollment at PIHT. Have a great module, and good luck!
