People of the College

I went to CCP for a while, then I stopped. I was laid off from my job last September. One of my goals was to just focus on school. So when I was laid off, I took the opportunity to come back. Because of CCP’s policies, a lot of my classes transferred and I was able to come back and only take about three to four classes. My plan after graduation is to begin at La Salle while working part time. My education is so important. I let my work get in the way previously; now I’m taking my education seriously!
I’m currently at Temple University studying Theater and Business Administration. In my high school, I was encouraged to think outside of the box and think about time management. My counselor from my high school recommended we go to CCP first because the College adds a lot of value and character for students. I ended up enrolling in CCP with a full ride!
I come from Puerto Rico, so the easiest way to transfer my credits and not have a big student loan was to come here to CCP. I was looking around at other colleges and CCP seemed like a really good fit for what I was looking for—and I heard good things. I’m glad I did.
My major here at the College is Business Administration. All of the ‘fun’ activities I thought were just for ‘fun’ as a kid were actually business-related so I decided that would be the best career to get into.
