Pitt State Enrollment Down, PSU School of Construction Enrollment Up

PITTSBURG, KANSAS -

Earlier this week we reported that overall Pitt State enrollment numbers are down for this year, but not for PSU's school of construction.  They, along with other programs the college has to offer, held an open house for local high school students today. High school students are getting the chance to see whether or not they want to pursue the field of construction. But for PSU students like Stetson beck enrolling was a no brainer.

"Just getting to use all this cutting edge technology is just an outstanding experience that's like none other."

The school of construction has seen a 24% enrollment increase this year and is steadily rising each year.

"It's a necessity for life. No matter what happens to the economy we have to have it. Roads have to be there, treatment plans have to be there, buildings have to be there," says Stetson.

This is why school of construction director James Otter feels it's necessary for high school students to have an opportunity to come check it out.

"When they come here they can see it in full scale. See it in application and then we let them get their hands on it if they want to."

"I love it. I like hands on, i like going out and doing things. And the best part about construction is you can see the things you have done. Like oh i remember doing that, this use to look like this and this is what it became and i was apart of that," says Construction major Amanda Grewing.
