Students of promise

The Trib recently published a story about how students in The Pittsburgh Promise are faring at their most popular choice of schools, the Community College of Allegheny County. As an FYI, more Pittsburgh Promise students enrolled at RMU last fall than any other private school available to them. Of those 33 students, all but one returned for the spring term. (The student who did not take classes in the spring was injured in a car accident and plans to return next fall.) Those students have an average GPA of 3.0, right around the university average for all students and freshman students. They are active in campus activities and have become some of our most enthusiastic boosters.
