Introducing Brianna G

I plan on graduating with a degree in accounting. I am interested in Business because I like to learn about how money moves and works in the economies throughout the world.  After 1275 i will head to 1375 because thats what i need for my major and its a gateway to other business classes i need to take.  After i leave city tech i will go on to another school to get my bachelors degree in accounting or finance.

Introducing Joshua Robles

My name is Joshua Robles I am majoring in Computer Systems Technology and I am taking this class as a requirement and hopefully get stronger in math in the process. I know a good bit so if you are in trouble I can try to help and I hope this will be a good semester.


My name is Danny Cruz, my major is chemical technology. I became interested in my major I because believe chemistry is the basis of everything since everything can be broken down to an atomic level. After this course I will  work towards MAT 1475.

Introducing Julia Prokop

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the main event.  In the red corner,  majoring in Architectural technology, she hails from Rzeszow, Poland, and was rated by many professors with a passing grade – with 52 wins, 38 of them coming by the way of knockouts, and only one failed class- future student of a physics course, and future architect, she is, undefeated in five college classes, current City Tech student, Julia Prokop.
