Graduate Finds a World of Opportunities
Pitt Community College graduate Seun Bello Olamosu followed an educational journey that began in Nigeria, West Africa and led to her present position as Assistant Director for Training & Outreach of Duke University’s International House.
Olamosu moved to America in 1995 to live with her brother in Greenville. At his suggestion, she enrolled in PCC’s University Transfer program and quickly made herself at home as vice president of the school’s Student Ambassadors.
Though she enjoyed her PCC classes, Olamosu says her fondest memories of the college involve the friendships she made there.
“The best thing about attending PCC was definitely the people,” she says. “PCC is home away from home for me because I made so many lasting relationships.”
Olamosu would go on to earn a bachelor’s degree in Communications from N.C. State University. She says her PCC education “absolutely” prepared her for the transition to a four-year university.
A job with NCSU’s Continuing Education office sparked an interest in working with international students for Olamosu. She completed a master’s in International Studies with a concentration in Cross Cultural Counseling/Communication at N.C. State, which led to employment with Duke’s International House.
Olamosu says her role as an advocate for Duke’s internationals (students, scholars, and their families) is “a perfect fit” and something she is truly passionate about.
