It is shocking to think that I will be graduating tomorrow after being at CCBC for two years in the business administration program. Time surely does fly, and leaving CCBC to go onto my next school will certainly be a bittersweet transition. I am going to be transferring to IUP in the fall to major in Marketing and minor in Spanish. I hope to obtain my Master’s Degree and then possibly continuing on to pursue my Doctorate. Looking back, I will forever be grateful for the opportunities, connections, and experiences that I have had here at CCBC.
When I first decided to come to community college, I was unsure about what to expect. There are always people who will tell you that the quality of education at a community college level is not equivalent to that of the education at a four year institution. This, my friends, is completely false. I feel that the education I have received here has prepared me extremely well to be successful at IUP. There is no doubt in my mind that CCBC was a great place to start my education. I have had great teachers who have always been extremely helpful and kind. I have made friends that I am confident I will have for a lifetime.
Also, there are so many opportunities for scholarships, volunteer work, and internships through CCBC. It is just vital to make sure to keep informed on everything that is happening on campus so you never miss out on anything.
No matter where life takes me, I will always be proud to call myself a graduate from the Community College of Beaver County. I hope that after your time as CCBC students, you can say the same for yourselves.
