Studying: I’m doing my general studies at JCCC. Then, I plan on attending K-State next fall to get my master’s degree in Regional and Community Planning.

Why did you choose JCCC? I chose JCCC because I knew I would benefit from the small class sizes. It allows you to get to know the people in your class really well. You also get more individual feedback and attention from your professors, which helps with your success as a student.

What clubs or extracurricular activities are you involved in? I am involved in a Catholic small group, SPO, that meets on campus.

What is your advice for future students?: Take advantage of your opportunities, make connections with students and faculty, and enjoy yourself!

What is your favorite part about JCCC?: My favorite part about JCCC is that small classes make it easy to meet people. I also appreciate how the professors genuinely care about you and are easy to talk to.
