Future Education Plans: Transfer to a 4-year College
Major: A.A. Communications/Film Studies
When Ben graduated from high school, he took a year off to work to build up his savings. However, after a year, he decided it was time to further his education and enrolled at SCCC for economic reasons. He will eventually follow a transfer path to a 4-year college or university.
The close proximity to home and work as well as the nurturing environment and diversity of course offerings is giving Ben the confidence that he will need to develop his skills—allowing him to successfully transfer to a 4-year college or university of his choice. While attending SCCC, he is making many good friends who are from the area.
Ben's Thoughts on SCCC: "After taking off a year after high school, I thought it would be difficult to get back into a classroom atmosphere; however, SCCC is now giving me what I need in order to continue my education—allowing me to fulfill my general education requirements and to transfer to a 4-year college to pursue my bachelors degree."
