Granted, success is defined differently for each person. However, my experience at Dutchess Community College has helped me achieve personal success and reach higher levels of growth than I ever thought possible. Sound clichéd? Maybe. But the truth is that DCC has incredible resources that students and communities are discovering and connecting to every day. At DCC, I thrived from a diversity of on-campus experiences: intellectually stimulating classes, academic resources, the beautiful campus scenery and interacting with other students, with whom I made invaluable friendships.
With exposure to different people and ideas and a growing self-assurance, I discovered a more passionate and articulate voice. I see this voice permeating my writing, speaking and even my thinking. This change all started when I discovered what I wanted from life and connected to it at DCC. I'm looking forward to taking all I've learned to my next school, Cornell."
