Student Spotlight: Catherine Pitts

March 13, 2023

Name: Catherine Pitts

Major: Bioengineering

Year: Senior

Why did you choose Clemson?: I chose Clemson because their bioengineering department got students involved in research early and supported their students!

How were they recruited?: I am a fifth generation Clemson student, so my family encouraged me to visit and Clemson had all the experiences I wanted.

Future Goals: I am pursuing a combined bachelors/masters right now and I hope to work in the prosthetics or biomechanics industry once I graduate!

CECAS and PEER/WISE involvement: I am a student researcher in Dr. Desjardins’ lab, working on a prosthetic. This is my third semester working for PEER/WISE!

Highlights from their Clemson Experiences: A highlight from my Clemson experience is definitely home football games! I love getting to meet alumni, welcoming new Clemson fans, and getting to cheer on the Tigers with my friends and the Clemson Family.
