Allow Us to Introduce: Michelle PannielloClass of 2011
Michelle Panniello is originally from White River Junction, Vermont. She came to Vermont Tech after spending three semesters at the University of Vermont, where she majored in psychology. The transfer was inspired by the desire to be on a small campus where classes are personal and the professors really care about the success of their students.
Michelle had nearly no experience with information technology when she transfered to Vermont Tech. "I was afraid that I would be at a disadvantage starting out here, when it seemed most people already knew a lot," said Michelle, "but my professors and classmates were very accommodating and I never felt uncomfortable asking them for help." She is now working towards graduating early with a bachelor's degree.
As for plans for the future; Michelle is still evaluating her options. One thing she does know is that she wants to remain in New England as long as possible. She has no doubts that once she decides on her career path, Vermont Tech's Career Services will work alongside her to choose an opportunity thats right for her.
