Disability in Education: High School versus Higher Education
When transitioning from high school to higher education, it is important for students and parents to note that there are key differences in the services provided and the laws that govern accommodations.
Below are a few of these important differences:
On Sept. 13, Professor of Business Administration and Accounting Angelo Giannini took business culinary students Carissa Jones ’19, Rachel Laughlin ’19, Paigh Davis ’18 and Jean Felix ’20 to the Pittsburgh Technical College for a campus tour. The culinary students met Director of Adult Enrollment Jeff Leedstrom and Chef Director Norman P. Hart. Students toured the campus with a concentrated tour of the culinary facilities. Leedstrom discussed housing, class schedules, the certificate programs and the quarterly time frames. Hart reviewed class structures, the philosophy of the culinary programs (both baking and culinary), what is expected of students and his knowledge of the culinary industry.
Tomcat Tributes are designed to recognize the teamwork Thiel College employees exhibit each day. Employees can nominate co-workers for recognition in four categories (Random Act of Kindness, Going the Extra Mile, Had a Great Idea, Just Because).
