Why did you choose Edgewood College?
The small classes were very important for me to get the help I needed. Also, the fact that I would be able to be close to my family was a big positive.
How has financial aid impacted your college experience?
Receiving financial aid made my decision to pursue nursing very easy. Once I received my financial aid award letter, it was clear that I could follow my dreams at the best place for me. The financial aid also makes it possible for me to put my total focus on school rather than constantly worrying about working and making money to make it to the next semester.
Did receiving financial aid impact your decision to attend Edgewood College?
I was planning on going to a different school before I received my award letter, and once I found out that Edgewood College was affordable and signed up for a tour, I changed my decision of colleges.
What will a college degree mean to you?
A college degree means everything to me. It is everything I have worked for and means a sturdy future for me.
Have you learned something during college you didn’t expect?
I have learned so much more about myself and how to be independent since coming to college than I ever expected.
What are your plans after graduation?
After graduation I plan on taking the state boards exam, and hopefully passing, then getting a job in a hospital. My dream job would be at the VA as I love the population of patients and giving back to the veteran community who has done so much for us.
