Major: General Studies with a Concentration in English

Clubs and Other Interests: Reading, writing, and photography

Why did you choose Cecil?

I choose Cecil because it was a small school that was close to home. It was also the only school I knew of that accepted students that were still in high school. In addition, I came to Cecil because it had a high amount of homeschooled children, so I would feel less out of place.

How has Cecil College helped you realize your goals?

The staff in the reading and writing lab were some of my main motivators in why I decided to get an English degree. I would come in to get a paper checked and every time they would ask me why I wasn’t pursuing this as a career. I haven’t been happier since I switched majors. Nonetheless, the college’s creative writing prize showed me that if I wanted to pursue a career in writing I would fully be able to do so. The hard work I put in to impress my instructors has also helped me realize my own strengths.

Major: Nursing

Clubs and Other Interests: Music, cooking, films, volleyball

Why did you choose Cecil?

I chose Cecil for many reasons. One factor that is on everyone's minds when considering a college is how expensive it will be. No one wants to accumulate debt. Cecil is very affordable and even more so with financial aid. This made it a great choice for me. I also have two younger brothers that are so going to school. Living close to home makes it easier to spend time with them.

What are classes and faculty like at Cecil College?

In my experience, the classes are fairly small which allows for more one-on-one time with the professors. All of the professors really want their students to succeed; so never be afraid to ask questions! I have just started in the Nursing Program and the faculty have been extremely helpful. Even though the class sizes in Nursing are much bigger than my previous classes, the instructors are quick to answer their emails and any questions I have.

I wanted to try Nursing because I had heard that Cecil's Nursing Program was great. I was accepted and now that I'm in the program, I'm so glad I stuck with it. Even after just a month in the program, I realized I really do have a passion for caring for others in a medical setting.
