Looks like there's a leftover "pd" executable in /usr/local/bin/ .
Try verifying this with:

% which pd

If you get /usr/local/bin/pd, then that's the case.
You should remove this binary.

it would also help to put /Users/student ... /bin *before* your $PATH,
rather than after it. (But I'm not a Bash expert.)

hope that's some help,
