Bramson ORT College Students Create A New Game Club!

I enrolled at Bramson ORT College in February 2013 seeking knowledge in game design and programming. I already had my degree in media and wanted to gain more updated and hands-on skills in game design. My goal was to gain advanced skills and create a portfolio that would lead towards a career in the video game industry. During my first year at the college, I have met some remarkable people and learned a handful of new talents and skills. I am most appreciative of my newfound competency in programming fundamentals, CG modeling, and animation. One of the most important things I have done in my time at Bramson ORT was to help organize the Bramson ORT Game Design Club. The BOC Game Club was organized by a group of passionate game design students and faculty. The club is mostly run by students, but Bramson ORT’s faculty help oversee projects and deadlines. The team is currently working on an adventure and strategy game that will be showcased at the end of June. The game design team had arranged several visits to places such as Quirky Studios in Chelsea, the Global Game Jam at NYU Polytech, NYC Game Forum meetings at the Rockefeller Center Microsoft Building, APEX 2014 in Somerset, New Jersey, and the Indie Cade Expo at the Museum of the Moving Image located in Astoria. These wonderful educational experiences, in the classroom and beyond, have allowed the gaming students to meet a variety of people with their own types of passion for gaming. The trips have also given us exposure to professional game design techniques and industry experience.

As my time at Bramson ORT is nearing completion, I have been able to acquire a remote internship with Primer Labs and their upcoming game, Code Hero. I had been one of the many people who helped fund the game’s production in 2011. With this project, there is a wealth of opportunity to reach out further and educate programmers and nonprogrammers alike on the concepts and execution of game programming through playing a game created on the Unity Engine. In addition to my internship, I will also be working with Game Truck New York as the head of their mobile laser tag division. I will also be working on a 2D side scroller with a good friend of mine from Bramson ORT College. I plan to continue pressing forward towards my goals. I feel more determined to continue learning through play, and incite ideas that will provoke thoughts, evoke feeling, and ultimately entertain. Bramson ORT College allowed me to gain the hands-on game design skills needed and opened up a door of opportunities for me.

The Game Design and Programming Degree and Certificate Program at Bramson ORT College is one of the few well-rounded programs that offer courses in 3D modeling and animation using Autodesk Maya software, C++ Programming, Game Software Engineering, Game Engine Architecture, Game Programming Direct3D, Al Game Development, Game Audio Development, Java Games, Multiplayer Game Programming, Mobile Application Development, Game Console Programming and Programming Linux Games. These courses are designed to prepare students in many game design genres and platforms by focusing on both the technical and creative end of this growing and multi-faced field. Courses in digital animation, character development and modeling, level design, interactive game storytelling, and light rendering add to the uniqueness of this program. Liberal Arts courses are also required such as Physics for Game Developer, Math for Game Developer and additional elective Liberal Arts courses for the degree program. The college offers career internships and job placement assistance through the Career Services Department. For more information about the game club contact Professor Dominika Juraszek at djuraszek@bramsonort.edu.

Biba

Biba, A Bramson ORT Student Success Story!

My name is Biba Nadjoari and I was born in Burkina Faso, West Africa on January 1st, 1984. I emigrated to the United States of America in May 2007 to join my husband, whom I had met in 2004 in Burkina Faso. In 2008, we welcomed our beautiful baby girl, but things weren’t going well between us and we eventually separated in 2011. Life was very tough for me during that period, but I realized that God works in mysterious ways. I knew I would get my smile back. Today, I have a smile because of Bramson ORT College.

I always thought about going back to school, but I never had the opportunity to. In January 2012, I bought “The Daily News” newspaper one morning when I was on my way to work. Though I had little time to look at it, something caught my eye in the job opportunities section. I saw an ad for Bramson ORT College that read “Become a Medical Assistant at Bramson ORT College in less than 16 months!” During that same week, I visited Bramson ORT College’s Brooklyn Campus to find out more information about this Degree Program. When I arrived, Ms. Vera Brenner welcomed me. She encouraged me to process my application as soon as possible and registered me for my Accuplacer test. I was not successful the first time, so she recommended I start free tutoring at Bramson ORT College. There, I met Ms. Zoya Yakubova, who encouraged me to take the test again. Again, I was not successful, so I continued my tutoring with Zoya. A few weeks later, she advised me to take the test again before the summer semester started in June 2012. This time, I successfully passed. Thanks to Bramson ORT staff, I was able to stay determined and not give up!

In June 2012, I was finally able to start my Degree Program at Bramson ORT College, but then I lost my Home Health Aide job. This was a very difficult time for me, but I refused to give up college for any reason. For four months, I lived without a job and found it very difficult. A silver lining occurred when I finally got a full-time job in October 2012, around the time I was registered for my second semester. I was working day and night and still taking 18 credits at Bramson ORT College. I successfully completed my second semester and started my third semester. I then realized that my life was much better than it was before.

During my fourth semester, I started my internship at Dr. Ofem Ajah’s office at The New York Methodist Hospital in Brooklyn. Dr. Ajah and his staff loved me. He really appreciated my professional performance and skills, so he offered to hire me. I completed my application at The New York Methodist Hospital and went in for the interview. As a result, I was successfully hired with a full time job in August 2013. I completed my internship at the end of August and received my two-year Medical Assistant Associate Degree in October 2013. The Medical Assistant Program at Bramson ORT College offers students numerous opportunities and teaches them valuable real-life skills. Obtaining multiple skills increases your chances of working in any health care facility or health related company. There are many doors open for Medical Assistants even in this tough economy.

Bramson ORT College made my dream come true! I finally have a career that I love. I am working full-time as a Medical Assistant at The New York Methodist Hospital and I have transferred my Bramson ORT College credits to CUNY for enrollment in a nursing program. I now believe that I can take good care of myself and my daughter and still further my education. I am very grateful to Bramson ORT College for this wonderful experience, and will always recommend the college to all. I will never forget my professors, who always made me laugh even when the going got tough. I would like to thank all my Professors, Bramson ORT staff, and my classmates for their support. Thank you for helping me live my dream! A special thank you to Dr. Ofem Ajah and all others who enabled me to get the career of my dreams at New York Methodist Hospital!

Waxman

Bramson ORT’s Notable Faculty Have a Passion For Teaching

When asked what career he would pursue if he had a chance to go back in time, Professor Waxman replied, “I would not change anything. I feel very fortunate to be teaching at Bramson ORT College, for it gives me the opportunity to help many students achieve their goals.” One prime example of how Professor Waxman helped students achieve their goals was the creation of The Game Design A.A.S. Degree Program at Bramson ORT College. Professor Waxman worked together with Computer Technology & Electronics Coordinator, Damindra Persaud, to design a new program for Game Design. However, Professor Waxman had another motivation in mind, “I have a son who loves to play games and I wanted to create a program that was more than just teaching programming. The goal was to create a Game Design Program that teaches creativity. Bramson ORT’s Game Design students have to create a professional portfolio. Since there are many students that play video games, there is a natural attraction to go into an industry that will give them pleasure and earn them a living at the same time.”

“As a Computer Science Professor, I don't just teach students how to program. My goal is to help students develop a passion for programming and learning,” stated Professor Waxman, who helped develop the Cisco Networking Program that leads to certification. Both the Game Design and Cisco Networking Programs will help students obtain high paying employment in a tough economy. The introductory courses are designed for students with no prior knowledge of programming. Since all calculations are done using the computer, students do not need advanced mathematical skills. The Cisco curriculum gives students the opportunity to get hands-on training with a combination of programming and networking skills. Cisco routers can be programmed to solve networking issues, including high-speed transmissions and remote data applications, Local Area Networks, and Wide Area Networks. The world depends on Cisco systems for networking. Cisco is a leading indicator in terms of economic growth. Professor Waxman assisted with the development of the Renewable Energy and Graphic Design Programs as well. As a goal for the future, he would like to see Bramson ORT become a four-year college. In his view, most of the students would like to obtain a four-year B.S. or B.A. degree from Bramson ORT College. The good news is that most of our students can transfer their credits to institutions of higher learning upon graduation. Many of our students gain employment in their field of study thanks to the great work of our Career Services Department that assists with internship and job placement opportunities. Now that is above the average.

Professor Waxman grew up in Brooklyn, New York. He has a B.A. degree from Brooklyn College in Speech with a minor in Mathematics, a M.S. degree in Mathematics and Education from Richmond College, and a P.D. degree in Educational Administration from St. John’s University where he is currently enrolled in an Administration Doctoral Program, which he intends to complete by the end of the year. His mathematics achievements include a license in mathematics and an appointment to ESEA Title 1 Corrective Mathematics Program. In this capacity, he screened and implemented remedial mathematics programs for Catholic schools and Yeshivas for 12 years and was the Assistant Principal for mathematics in Dewitt Clinton High School, where he witnessed improved student mathematics scores. Professor Waxman was a treasurer in Bayside High School and taught English, math, computers, and speech at Breuer's High School, as well as mathematics at Yeshiva University High School. His vast educational experience makes him one of Bramson ORT’s most accomplished faculty members. His computer science achievements include a Mellon Scholar in Computer Sciences, writing the AP Computer Science curriculum and becoming the computer coordinator for D.C.H.S., while at the same time becoming the president of the Computer Coordinators Association for the Bronx and associating with Mercy College Computer Science Department. In 1997 he became a Professor at Bramson ORT College. In addition, his speech pathology expertise led him to be associated with the NYIT Speech Department. He is also an expert in writing, research, and educational administration and curriculum construction. He has a license in administration supervision through the superintendent of schools. With his extensive technical and educational background, Professor Waxman is one of the driving forces behind Bramson ORT’s Computer Science Department. At Bramson ORT College, the faculty and staff reflect high educational standards and leadership in their fields.

In addition to the Computer Technology and Electronics Degree Programs, the college offers degrees in Medical Assistant, Pharmacy Technician, Paralegal, Accounting, Business Management, Business Management Online, Office Technology, Graphic Design Concentration and much more! For more information about the college’s Computer Networking, Programing, Gaming, Electronics, and Renewable Energy Programs visit www.BramsonORT.edu or contact an Admissions Specialist at 718-261-5800. For a limited time, the college is offering a $500 scholarship towards student’s tuition! Start your new career by calling to enroll today!

I Started my Dream at Bramson ORT College!

"My name is Lu Hui Qiu. I am 39 years old with two kids and my lovely wife. I chose to pursue my goal last year and enrolled at Bramson ORT College.

I am a Traditional Chinese Acupuncturist. I use acupuncture and massage techniques to help patients with pain and other symptoms. As my father was an Urologist and Surgeon, I always knew there would be better results if patients could receive a combination treatment of western medicine with eastern traditional medicine. My goal is to become a Physician Assistant and Bramson ORT College was the start of my dream. The Medical Assistant Program is an affordable alternative to entering directly into a four-year PA Program. I chose the Medical Assistant Program at Bramson ORT College as it has courses that match the prerequisite courses for the PA Program.

With the help from Bramson ORT’s friendly Admissions Staff and the Financial Aid Department, the enrollment went smoothly. The flexible class schedule suits my need to work and take care of my family. The engaging professors, small class size, and supportive classroom and lab environment make the study efficient and fun.

I finished my internship two weeks ago. The clinic that I interned at hired me upon completion. The doctor was so satisfied with my knowledge and the advanced skills that I acquired at Bramson ORT College. Moreover, I successfully transferred most of the course credits to CUNY York College's Physician Assistant Program."

Bramson ORT College Taught Me the Skills and Knowledge Required to Make it in The Gaming Industry!

"My name is Adam Alicea and I graduated with an Associate Degree in Game Design at Bramson ORT College. Before I started my education at Bramson ORT College, I was working at an uneventful security job. I knew I didn't want to do this for the rest of my life and I had a desire to obtain a career relating to the art field. At the time, I wasn't sure what my options were. I had dropped out of high school, which put me at a major disadvantage as a workforce candidate. A friend told me about Bramson ORT College's High School Equivalency Program. I learned that you could obtain your High School Equivalency while earning college credit at the same time. I immediately jumped onto this opportunity and enrolled at Bramson ORT College. This single decision impacted my future.

I enrolled as a Game Design and Programming major. I learned about Game Design starting from the basic principles to the intermediate concepts. This unique program introduces students to all types of design aspects from developing characters and understanding how they work, to understanding the business aspects and developing good stories for games. The Game Design Associate Degree Program also introduces you to intermediate aspects of programming for game and character development. I was introduced to Autodesk Maya, an industry software application used for 3D animation, 3D modeling, simulation, visual effects, rendering, and compositing. With Maya, I learned how to develop 3D models for games and animations. In my first few classes, I realized that I wanted to design characters for video games and become a successful Game Designer.

During my studies, Bramson ORT College's Career Services Department helped me obtain an internship as a Game Tester for Power Head Games. As a game tester, I had to document any issues or errors in video games and send these reports to the Game Developers. This role is very important because it involves all the mechanics of a game, such as the art, sound, hardware, and software. Without these aspects, the game cannot be completed. The whole process of creating a game from start to finish is amazing and challenging. Everyone I worked with had strict deadlines, and we had to finish our duties in a small amount of time. I witnessed how hard everyone had to work to finish completing the game, and I pushed myself to do the best job possible. I received an A following the completion of my internship.

I came to the realization that what I learned was more important than receiving a good grade. I learned something that I could take with me in any situation. It was the idea and understanding that through any situation there will always be a struggle. There will always be some type of frustration or letdown or days when you feel like quitting. But through your struggles, you end up building something without realizing it. This is called character. Character can be a strength that takes on any situation. Sometimes knowing or not knowing what is really involved and building a strong character is a tool that will help you to grow as a better person for the rest of your life! Bramson ORT College taught me the skills and knowledge required to make it in the gaming industry! I am glad that I found my path at Bramson ORT!

Why Choose Bramson ORT College? Hear What Our Top Graduates Are Saying!

Scott McIntosh graduated from the Renewable Energy Program with Honors. During the recent 2013 Bramson ORT College Graduation Ceremony, he shared his great Bramson ORT experience - READ BELOW

My classmates and I are very grateful for our talented instructors and advisors, whose caring, and constant dedication have been instrumental to our success here. I am personally thankful, for having the opportunity to study under Professor John Howell, his advice, along with his extensive knowledge, has inspired me to broaden my horizons. And then, there is our Zoya, her guidance and enthusiasm, were priceless to me. Our problems were always important to her, and her inner light could brighten up anyone’s day.

We also owe a debt of gratitude to our school, Bramson ORT College. Bramson is member of the “World ORT” organization. ORT was founded in Russia in the year 1880, with the noble mission, to provide much needed technical knowledge and skill, to members of the Russian Jewish community. Today, over 130 years later, ORT’s founding purpose is still being realized, along with some significant advancements. ORT schools, such as ours, have opened their doors to the entire world community. Over the years, they have promoted education and training to all who are willing to learn in more than 100 countries. You can clearly see the proof of that here today, by the great variety of faces in our graduating class.

Graduates, I know that many of you feel as fortunate as I do today. Virtually every one of us has family members or forebears who have made sacrifices on our behalf. Our predecessors made those sacrifices so that we would have a better life and could have a positive impact on society. Most of their dreams were not for themselves, but for the success of the next generation.

Today, you have fulfilled their dreams, and justified their sacrifice. This is a great accomplishment, and you should all be very proud. We have worked very hard for our degrees & certificates, and we have earned this day. We should enjoy this moment fully, but also be mindful, that with today’s achievements will come tomorrow’s responsibilities. We have gained an education and now we have the obligation to use what we have learned to better our lives, and to benefit humanity.

-For what man, is truly a man, who does not try to make his world better?

In recent times, we have seen our share of inept and self-serving individuals in places of power. It seems as if an epidemic of selfishness and greed has infected a large portion of the population. Our country is now in great need of real leaders. Leaders with integrity and with vision, whom we can all rally behind. Leaders whose first priority lies with the betterment of the people they serve, and not with the enrichment of their own bank accounts or celebrity.

My friends, I urge you, to see your diploma not only as a passport to the good life, but also as a permit to help create a better life for all. Each of us can be a leader, or an advocate for change, in whatever profession we choose. For if you improve life for one of us, you have, in turn, improved life for all of us.

My colleagues, I call upon you now, to follow in the footsteps of those who dreamed of your success. Make it your goal to initiate positive changes for the benefit of future generations. Make it your dream to accomplish something greater then yourself. And Make this day, this day, be the start of a journey that will culminate with a legacy of respectable leadership, environmental enrichment, and the advancement of all humanity.

And allow these words, from Emerson, to guide you.

“The purpose of life is not only to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, and to be compassionate, and to have it make some difference that you have lived, and lived well.”

BRAMSON ORT COLLEGE CONGRATULATES THE CLASS OF 2013!

This June, Bramson ORT College held their graduation ceremony at the Forest Hills Jewish Center. Staff, faculty, friends, and parents gathered to congratulate the class of 2013. Students delivered captivating speeches reflecting on how Bramson ORT aided them on their path to success. Many shared their personal life stories during the graduation. One such powerful speech was delivered by Jessica Florez. Jessica enrolled in the Medical Department with a concentration in Medical Billing and Coding. On the day of her graduation, she shared her story of struggle, transformation, and victory in a speech that moved many in the audience.

My name is Jessica Florez and I am a woman who was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. This year, I achieved my goal of graduating college. I came to Bramson ORT College inquiring about information on how to become a student and I decided to enroll. It has always been a dream of mine to graduate college and have a successful future in a medical profession. During my time at Bramson ORT College, I was faced with tragedy that forced me to struggle throughout my semesters. On September 29, 2009, I enrolled at Bramson ORT College with great excitement to be taking a step forward in furthering my education. I was eager to share the news with my mom and brother and contact my father. I received a phone call that evening and had to face the worst possible news about my father’s death. My father had suffered a heart attack. For me, losing a parent and not having them be able to witness one's joy and happiness is incredibly painful. I didn’t want to go back to school and I was missing a lot of my classes. But something came over me during that time. It was like I had my father by my side saying, “Jessica you have to finish school! I want you to achieve your hopes and dreams and I will be looking down at you.” So, I pulled myself together and I conquered this for him. Even though my dad couldn’t be with me on my graduation to celebrate this special day, I know he’s here in spirit. Losing a loved one like my dad has motivated me to graduate. I know I’ve made him proud. I want to state that things aren’t easy in life. In order to become someone and grow as an individual you are going to have to face struggles in life, but you can overcome them as I did. I’m glad that I pushed myself towards the right direction to finish college and go after what I want in life. I want to thank my mom who brought me into this world. She has always encouraged me to do the right things and has always supported me. My mom always wants what’s best for me and I love her. I also want to thank my friends and family who have supported me throughout this journey. I wanted to say to my dad what I did not get a chance to say to him, “Dad, I love you and miss you and will continue to make you proud!” I want to thank the staff and professors at Bramson ORT College who were there for me and believed in me as a student and as an individual. My experience at Bramson ORT will never be forgotten and I will take that with me always. Thank you to everyone at Bramson ORT College for the opportunity to share my story! I greatly appreciate it! And to my fellow classmates, good luck to each and every one of you. Thank you!

Gugu Ginindza, Bramson ORT College's 2013 Valedictorian

"My name is Gugu Ginindza. I am a Bramson ORT student. I am from Swaziland in Southern Africa. I am the first-born of three. I have a sister and a brother. My parents are both deceased. I am the mother of three boys and have been married for ten years. I came to the United States to join my husband who is currently enrolled at Columbia University.

One day my husband was passing by Bramson ORT and he decided to come in and get information on how to apply. The staff at the Admissions Office were very friendly and welcoming, and they gave him all the information he needed. A few days later, I came in to complete the application process and that is how I enrolled at Bramson ORT.

Bramson ORT College gave me a chance to embark upon my educational dream. I had applied to other schools before, but I was rejected because I did not have any educational background in the U.S. While at Bramson ORT, I learned a lot and the learning environment with professional and caring professors made it easier. I thought that I would have a hard time fitting in being a foreigner, but everyone was welcoming and I felt like other students.

Currently, I am enrolled at York College, CUNY. I enrolled as a Biology Major. My goal is to enroll as a medical candidate by fall of 2015. The education that I garnered from Bramson ORT has been very beneficial, and I realize that it gave me a head start for my education in the medical field. I would not have been able to pursue my educational goals if Bramson ORT had not given me a chance.

Now that I have my Medical Assistant Degree, my options are endless. I have plans to get a part-time job as a Medical Assistant and continue my education full time. I would recommend Bramson ORT to any student who wants to get started on their education or career in the medical field."

Bramson ORT led me to a Golden Path!

The medical industry has been one of the fastest growing industries in the 21st century and it has been reported that the employment of Medical Assistants is expected to grow tremendously as the health service industry expands. Bramson ORT's Career Services Department assists students with job and internship placement in different medical fields. The small class size, affordable tuition, and community atmosphere allows students to get the hands-on training they need to help them succeed in the "Real World." Bramson ORT's educational success is reflected in the many testimonials and student stories such as this one:

"Why did I become a college student? After being employed at my former job for a decade, I was laid off. I was hurt, scared, and confused, and I didn't know how I would be able to survive without a steady income.

It has always been a dream of mine to further my education. Education has always been, and remains, one of the key values in my family. I wanted to convey the importance of education to my children, without being a hypocrite. Though I would be receiving unemployment benefits, I knew this would give me the opportunity pursue my long time dream of obtaining a college degree. What better way to set an example for my family than to show them that I could earn a college degree while being a mother, babysitter, and household manager? Yes, women wrote the book on multitasking! I knew that pursuing a college degree would be a challenge, and that it would take a lot of hard work, but I believed in myself!

I began researching two-year colleges and learned about Bramson ORT College. The small class sizes, diverse student body, and hands-on training caught my attention. Having been out of school for a long period of time, I knew I would need some encouragement and individualized help from my instructors. Their support was wonderful and gave me the positive boost I needed.

I enrolled in the Medical Assistant Associate Degree Program at Bramson ORT College. I knew that because of the tremendous growth in the health service industry, I would have a better chance of being employed in this field. In less than two years, I landed my dream job as a Medical Assistant!

Through this life changing experience, I've learned that you should always aspire to achieve your goals, no matter what obstacles may get in your way. Never stop believing in yourself.

Finding My Path at Bramson ORT College

The medical industry has been one of the fastest growing industries in the 21st century and it has been reported that the employment of Medical Assistants is expected to grow tremendously as the health service industry expands. Bramson ORT’s Career Services Department assists students with job and internship placement in different medical fields. The small class size, affordable tuition, and community atmosphere allows students to get the hands-on training they need to help them succeed in the “Real World.” Bramson ORT’s educational success is reflected in the many testimonials and student stories such as this one:

“My name is Shneur. I’m seventeen years old, with six siblings. Bramson ORT College has helped me get a High School Equivalency as well as a Medical Assistant Associate Degree. Being one of seven children is very difficult financially on my parents. Bramson ORT College helped me get the financial aid needed to continue my education. The money your organization gave me towards my education allowed me to go to college. So thank you very much because without your help I would still be uneducated and facing low paying employment. This has afforded me a chance to go further in the medical field and opened up many opportunities.”

I was born in Noakhali Bangladesh. In 2001, I came to the USA with hopes and dreams of becoming a millionaire at the age of nineteen. Ever since I came to America, my goal was to go to school and get my degree. They say education is the great equalizer and the way to success. Bramson ORT College made this dream possible for me!

I worked for a bank from 2005 to 2010. After seeing a newspaper ad about the school, I enrolled as a business management major at Bramson ORT in 2010. I chose Bramson ORT, because Bramson ORT chose me as a student without seeing my color or nationality. The college made me feel like I was part of the family and community. I felt challenged by the academic rigor offered in the classes. I was able to gain extensive knowledge about a variety of subjects such as Accounting, Economics, Business Communications and Statistics. My instructors were excellent and always ready to provide me with additional help if I did not grasp the material. The college provided free tutoring and career internship programs. The additional personalized assistance allowed me to excel in my classes and beyond. Also, I enjoyed making many connections with the other Bramson ORT students. They are intelligent, hard working, and eager to help others. I appreciated the small class size, which enabled me to develop good relationships with my professors and classmates.

Lastly, I appreciated Bramson ORT's administration and staff. When I had difficulties paying for my tuition in the last semester, the Bursar's Office worked out a payment plan and provided a partial scholarship for me. I am indebted to the school for believing in me and my future potential. I will never forget Bramson ORT as I continue to build my career in the financial industry. I remain connected with their Alumni on their LinkedIn and Facebook networking sites.

Currently, I am studying towards a Bachelor of Business Administration at Baruch College. My goal is to finish my Bachelors Degree by 2014. I belong to a club at Baruch where we raise funds for public schools. My participation in the club has fulfilled my desire to help others. My future goal is to work for Grameen Bank and help lower income people. Baruch is my dream school and Bramson ORT made that possible by preparing me for a higher education and the “Real World.” I am currently working my other dream job as a business manager. If I can do it, I know anyone can!

In the ever-changing and challenging world of technology, very few individuals have the opportunity to receive truly personalized and high-quality training. I was very fortunate to have that opportunity at Bramson ORT College.

Soon after graduating high school, I had to make a tough decision that would, as I found out, forever change my life. Choosing a higher education path was not an easy task, but I decided to choose a college that would provide a foundation to fulfill my dreams. I was looking for a college that would help me develop my technical skills and guide me in the correct direction. After applying to various universities and colleges, and taking entrance exams, I chose Bramson ORT College because it was the perfect fit for my needs. I enrolled in the Electronics Technology Program but switched to the Computer Technology Program because I was able to get hands-on training with computers and that opened a whole new world of possibilities.

At Bramson ORT College, I received a solid foundation in the field of Information Technology. My professors were very helpful and provided real-world scenarios in the classroom. I was also very fortunate to have access to additional student resources, such as a well-stocked library and state-of-the-art computer labs, career and internship placement, and free tutoring that was always available. In addition to classroom training, I started working as an assistant in the Computer Technology Department and eventually worked my way up to being employed by Bramson ORT College as a Network/Systems Administrator.

The education I received at Bramson ORT provided a strong foundation, and I was able to further my studies to obtain a Bachelors of Science in Information Technology. More importantly, I made valuable connections during my time at Bramson ORT College. I started my own Technology Consulting Business and many of my clients can be traced back to the college. It is thanks to the skills gained during my education, that I am now a successful business owner. I am grateful and very fortunate to be a part of this wonderful and caring organization. To show my appreciation, I currently work as a consultant to the college, giving back with hopes that it will generate more success stories. I recommend this college for anyone who is serious about their career goals and dreams and wants to get their foot in the door!

Bramson ORT College Welcomes International Students!

"I saw the ad for Bramson ORT College while I was visiting NYC with my mom. I was just discussing with her that I was interested in going back to school for web design when I saw the sign, so I took it as a sign. I called Bramson ORT College when I went back to Canada and asked them about international visa, what I would need to enroll and how I can study the program and make the transition to move to NYC.

The staff were extremely helpful at the college, so I applied. I also wondered how I would be able to support myself in NYC without being able to work for the 2 year program. I went to the OSAP website (which is part of the Canadian Student Loan), and found out they also fund for students studying outside of Canada as long as the school first gets approved by them. I applied for the school to get approved (this took about 3 months), the school was approved, and now OSAP funds Bramson ORT College, as long as the school maintains this eligibility every year onwards. Now students can find Bramson ORT while registering for a student loan on the OSAP website.

Once I got accepted into Bramson ORT College, they sent me an I-20 after I paid my deposit for classes. Originally, I called the US Embassy to make an appointment for a visa interview, they told me that there is no interview for Canadian citizens and I can just take my I-20, SEVIS fee receipt, proof of ties to Canada to any US Port of Entry. I was driving into NYC with my family with my I-20 and the border officials brought me inside, took the I-20 and my passport to basically process it for student visa. They simply asked me about my program and where I plan on staying during my study course. I gave them a relatives address and mentioned I will stay there until I find my own place or a roommate. They also asked how I plan to support myself while I am there, and I simply said I have a Canadian student loan and also my family will help me. They simply stamped the F-1 Visa on my passport, and I paid a $5 fee and then came to NYC.

I have now begun my studies at Bramson ORT College, and have been productively learning Computer and Internet Programming. The staff here were completely helpful in terms of helping me find accommodations, filling out any student loan documents and ensuring a positive experience in my course.

There are many opportunities for Canadians to study, learn and also participate in OPT programs while they are in school in NYC. NYC is convenient to live in as trains go everywhere, and it is a great place to build experience while studying."

Bramson ORT College Offers a Retraining Program For Students With Liberal Arts Degrees Who Want Hands-on Technical Skills that are In-demand!

Alexandra is a recent graduate from Syracuse University and a participant in Harvard University’s International Law Program. Now as one of the top liberal arts college graduates, she anticipates enrolling in a technical school. Why are so many liberal arts college graduates enrolling in technical colleges? Technical schools such as Bramson ORT College offer Professional Retraining Programs that enhance students’ skills by offering hands-on and marketable trades in today’s tough job market. Read Alexandra’s story below and discover the benefits of joining an in-demand degree program today!

There are many reasons why a technical school education is appealing to a liberal arts graduate such as myself. I find the necessity to sharpen what I lacked in my education- a trade! In this job market, competition is at its peak. To assure oneself a trade is the smartest thing one can do. I majored in French and International Relations. What can I declare at the end of my four years of study? I submerged my life in academia, but has it helped me find a job? Students across the nation are asking the same question. This is where a polytechnic education comes in handy. It will give you the key to not only apply what you learned with your Bachelors Degree, but also help your coveted eloquence and technical training stand out in the competitive job-market. You can prove what you know in theory with the hands-on experience that many employers perceive as desirable.

Having received a diverse and international education, I now want to go back to school to compliment my knowledge with the skills that are sought after in high demand. We are living in the digital age, surrounded by constantly changing technology. If you are not on the computer, then your business is already antiquated. I know that I can acquire an advanced technical skill-set by returning to a (technical) school and learning computer operations, programming, graphic design, game design, and all things that are most importantly, in-demand. It’s never too late. Technical schools with retraining programs such as Bramson ORT College offer hands-on skills in addition to internship and job placement assistance.

In many ways, technical schools can teach you practicality. You would be learning a set of skills that help prepare you for the “real world.” New jobs are surfacing and old ones are constantly updating their staff. This is where a technical institute will distinguish you from the rest. In today’s economy, many employers require HTML proficiency, knowledge of programming, experience in user-interface, web design, renewable energy technology, and many more. Liberal arts students can explore and sharpen their skillset by enrolling in a technical college. In most cases, liberal arts credits can be transferred towards the new degree. Private non-for-profit community schools, such as Bramson ORT, keep the tuition low and the hours flexible, so education is affordable and accessible. Discover the opportunities waiting for you!

Business Management Major at Bramson ORT College

My name is Marina. In 2005, my family and I immigrated to Russia. In 2009, we came to the United States. In 2010, we settled in New York. The experience of two immigrations gave me an opportunity to meet people from different cultures and to get to know different traditions. At first, it was very difficult adjusting to New York life. The process of adaptation, including searching for jobs, the language barrier, and my nostalgia for family and friends, served as an obstacle. I was ready to work hard and take on the challenge by continuing my education.

I discovered Bramson ORT College while my mother and I were exploring our new neighborhood. We were passing by Austin Street and noticed Bramson ORT College signs. I had a big aspiration to continue my education in the U.S.A. I wanted to improve my English and advance my knowledge and professional skills. Bramson ORT College seemed like the place for me. I decided to attend the college because of its diversity and multicultural environment that reminded me of my immigrant background. I also decided to attend Bramson ORT College because it reflects an atmosphere of acceptance, comfort, and support. Professors and counselors closely guide me through all my educational goals and help me progress to the next level. My college helped me transition and gave me the preparation for the real world needed in today’s economy.

Currently, I am in the process of finishing the required curriculum to complete my Business Management Associate Degree at Bramson ORT College. I am also working at the Financial Aid Office as an advisor assisting students with financial aid. Bramson ORT College gave me an opportunity to fulfill my goals. It has been a tremendously positive step towards improving my future and has helped me succeed. My next step is to pursue my Bachelor’s Degree. With a 4.0 GPA, I was accepted to one of the top Business Programs at Baruch College. Bramson ORT College will always stay in my heart and memories as a second home here in America!

I had a great time participating at Washington DC's General World Assembly. It was great fun to present my marketing products and meet other international students part of the ORT school network!

Bramson ORT's Top Game Design & Graphic Design Students Go To Washington DC to Present Their Work at the ORT General Assembly!

My name is Aleksey. I attend Bramson ORT College in Forest Hills, New York. My goal is to become a web and graphic designer. When I fist started taking classes at Bramson ORT College, I knew nothing about web or graphic design. ORT gave me a great introduction to the field of study that will be my career. Bramson ORT classes taught me basic HTML coding and simple programming languages. With this knowledge, I was able to teach myself CSS. I am currently learning JavaScript and continuing my studies. Bramson ORT helped me develop my artistic and design skills even further.

I enjoy drawing, inking, and painting. However, finding a career as an artist is difficult and ORT provided me with a way to apply my creative talent onto the digital world. I teamed up with other students to put together a simple interactive video game presentation for this year’s World ORT General Assembly. My partner, Steve, a Game Design major, assisted me with the coding. I used my creative skills to design character sprites and an informational website about the game. I am almost finished with my degree at Bramson ORT College and am planning to expand my skills and knowledge even further by continuing my education. Showcasing our work at Washington DC was great fun!

Bramson ORT College Medical Students go to Washington DC to Present their Work

My name is Victoria and I started going to Bramson ORT College in the year 2010. I graduated from the two-year program receiving my Associate Degree as a Medical Assistant. My experience with Bramson ORT College was a great journey. Going to school felt like a prize. I learned a lot of new things about the body and how everything works. The teachers were great and assisted me when I needed a helping hand. After my time at Bramson ORT College, I decided to go further with my education. I applied to Hunter College and took EMT classes to further my knowledge in the medical field. I am currently taking nursing classes at Hunter College and my goal is to finish all the classes and maybe even go on to become a doctor. I can’t tell you how much I love to help people and save lives. It’s probably the best feeling in the world to make somebody's day, at least for me it is. I had a great time at the General World ORT Assembly in Washington DC this summer! It was a great experience meeting so many talented ORT students.
