My Journey Back to School

Sandra Robinson
Fashion & Retail Management Student at The Art Institute of Pittsburgh - Online Division

Deciding to pursue an online degree brought on an unexpected mix of emotions. I went from feeling nervous and excited to feeling anxious and, at times, overwhelmed by this potential new adventure. Can you imagine?! It was 10 years since I had completed any sort of college level classes! At this point, I wasn’t even sure if l still possessed the skills to be a successful student…I just knew that I desperately desired the opportunity to have a more rewarding career. You see, fashion is what makes my heart go ‘pitter-patter’. I love every aspect of it…the clothing, shoes, hair and make-up…I just can’t seem to get enough! I am constantly scouring the internet and fashion magazines to see the latest trends or what the stars are wearing.

After some initial research into the various options available for a career in the fashion industry, I apprehensively approached the Admissions Team of The Art Institute of Pittsburgh- Online Division to see if their Fashion and Retail Management program would be a good fit for me. From the very beginning the counselors made me feel as though my dream of earning a fashion degree was not only realistic but totally attainable.

That was about two years ago and I am proud to say that this has been one of the best decisions I have made to improve my outlook for the future. The Art Institute of Pittsburgh – Online Division team has been with me every step of the way to provide invaluable information, resources, support, and key academic guidance to promote my success. Courses are designed to provide a solid foundation of knowledge and introduce the latest industry trends to the discussion in an interesting and inviting way. In my opinion, The Art Institute of Pittsburgh - Online Division is a perfect fit for me or anyone who is determined to succeed.
