Where are you from?
Baltimore, MD

Where did you go to college and what did you study?
completed a B.A. in Media Communications with a minor in Public Relations at Asbury University. I then graduated with my M.A. in Higher Education Administration from the University of Louisville.

What did you love most about college?
The ability to explore other areas of interest and to learn as much as I could about the fields and subjects that interested me.

What is one piece of advice you would give a student when choosing a college?
Find a path that allows you to pursue what you love. Consider the location, the career you hope to pursue, the friendliness of the faculty and the staff and the cost of the college. Find the best combination of all of these things that will get you to your end goal.

Why should students attend BCTC?
My favorite thing about BCTC is the affordability that it offers to students. My husband and I are working on paying back our student loans and every day I come to work, I wish that someone would have talked to me more about how much community college could have saved me. You don’t fully realize how much those student loans are going to cost you. Let me tell you from experience, every penny you can save counts, and if you can take out half the amount in student loans by starting at a community college, your future self will thank you!

Where are you from?
Mayslick, KY

Where did you go to college and what did you study?
I graduated with an Associate of Arts from Maysville Community and Technical College and a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education with a Middle School Language Arts endorsement from Midway College.

What did you love most about college?

Most definitely meeting new people! Coming from the smallest county in Kentucky, I took advantage of every opportunity to meet new people and experience new things.

What is one piece of advice you would give a student when choosing a college?
Choose a college that’s right for you. Don’t choose a college based on where your friends are going, where your parents went or what you've heard. Do the research, plan a visit, and make a choice that will benefit you the most.

Why should students attend BCTC?
BCTC offers hundreds of associate degree, diploma, and certificate options but most importantly you can receive a quality education in the field you desire, at an affordable price. Graduating college without student loan debt should be a goal of every college student. Attending BCTC can make that goal a reality.

Where are you From?
Dayton, OH
 
Where did you go to College and What did you study?
I graduated with my Bachelor’s in Arts from The University of Kentucky where I studied Journalism and Communication. I then attended Asbury Theological Seminary for a year, studying for my Master’s in Divinity. I will be attending Eastern Kentucky University to pursue my Master’s in Arts in Student Personnel Services.
 
What did you love most about college?
Getting involved and making new friends. I was involved in church ministries, peer-mentorship programs, and even wrote for my school paper. The people I met getting involved in these activities have become some of my best friends to this day.
 
What is one piece of advice you would give a student when choosing a college?
Find a college where you can get the most involved. Look for clubs, programs, or even job opportunities that you can take advantage of while you are there. It can make the difference in your experience. If you’re going to going to school for two to four (sometime even more) years, you might as well make the best of it!
 
Why should students attend BCTC?
The affordability in unbeatable. With colleges getting more and more expensive for students to attend, BCTC offers a great opportunity for students to either learn hands-on skills to get jobs or get general education knocked out of the way for transfer, while saving money.  As I like to tell students (and what I’ve learned from paying back my student loans) you never know how much you pay for college until you’re out of it.
