Eastern Alumni

Justin Piro

Justin Piro Biochemistry ’05 “The majority of my classes at Eastern included a strong lab component. I was doing what scientists do — getting outside of the classroom and working with the latest scientific equipment. Eastern really set the groundwork for me to go to graduate school.”

Chris Gardella

Chris Gardella Accounting ’15 “Volunteering with the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program opened the door for me at KPMG, and also impacted me on a personal level — the gratitude you get from helping a client in need leaves a mark on you.”

David Ngibuini

David Ngibuini Mathematics ’14 “All of life’s problems can’t be solved with a few lines of code. Having a liberal arts background helps me to draw from different branches of knowledge so that I can reach a creative solution, rather than facing the world purely as a computer scientist.”

Justin Brown

Dr. Justin Brown ’09 “Eastern provides an environment that is intellectually engaging, culturally diverse and socially enriching. It is my professional opinion that the KPE faculty are among the best educators in the country.”
