“I chose NCCC in order to receive a quality education at an extremely affordable cost. My future aspirations require me to be financially strategic, thus, community college was the perfect choice. “

English Composition

‘So far, my favorite professor has been Frank Grgach because he sticks to realism when teaching. He never beats around the bush, he says it how is it and that is something I deeply respect in a professor. On top of this, he remains flexible in order assist his students accordingly. He once told my class, “If its 10 o’clock at night, and I need to tutor a student over video chat, then we’ll make it happen. I’ve done it before”. ‘

At NCCC, I am apart of the TSS (Student Success Scholars) program. Out of NCCC, I partake in taekwondo, which I’ve been involved with for about 9 years now. My interests include hiking, reading, working out, snowboarding, and making good quality food.

“I anticipate to graduate NCCC after two years, in the spring of 2023. From there, from plan is to transfer to Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Colorado (a four year college). At Colorado State University, I plan to major in Nutritional Sciences, with a concentration in nutrition and fitness. My long term goal after college is to start my own health and wellness business.”

“I chose NCCC originally because of the Environmental Science program offered here, and even when my interests changed, I chose to stay because the campus is beautiful, and the many resources are easily accessible.”

“I am a student worker in the Admissions Department and am looking to join at least one club, now that I know what to expect from college.”

“After NCCC, I want to transfer to a 4-year university to get a bachelor’s degree in English. I’m hoping that I will find a job in the publishing/editing industry while I am in school to jumpstart my career.”

It was more cost-effective and recommended approach, then I’ll go on to a 4-year college.

“I enjoy my chemistry classes because the instructor Doug Mooney tries to make them fun and entertaining.”

“If I had to pick a favorite Professor, it would probably have to be Doug Mooney. He teaches chemistry because he enjoys it and always tries to make the class if not enjoyable, than less tedious, and is also the group leader of after school Dungeons & Dragons Club.”

“I am part of the Dungeons & Dragons (D&D) Club that meets after school and also part of the Teams Success Scholars Program. Some of my hobbies include hiking and climbing trees.”
