There was no better way to end such a fantastic week than with a visit from our former students during the Alumni Panel. They shared their academic experiences and personal hurdles with current students. Proving there really is a light at the end of the tunnel, and that with dedication and perseverance, goals can be achieved. “Don’t give up! Change your pathway as needed and keep going.” -Joel Deserto, AS Pre-Nursing & General Studies, Class of 2018.
Ms. Andrea Parker, Advising Center Supervisor and Chair of the SSW Committee stated “I am beyond thrilled about the endless possibilities that were presented to our student body during Student Success Week.
