"I came to the John Cardinal O’Connor Campus because I found the campus very easy to reach. I’m a single parent returning to college after nine years. What is important to me is that CNR offers individualized attention and a schedule that works around my hectic life. I also appreciate the smaller size classrooms. That’s not something you will find at a university as an undergraduate."

Why did you decide to attend the School of New Resources
of The College of New Rochelle?

I came to the John Cardinal O’Connor Campus because I found the campus very easy to reach. I’m a single parent returning to college after nine years. What is important to me is that CNR offers individualized attention and a schedule that works around my hectic life. I also appreciate the smaller size classrooms. That’s not something you will find at a university as an undergraduate.


What class was one of your favorites?

I think it would be “Designing the Future” taught by Professor Yetka Carlisle. This class prepared us for the future as far as job interviews, finding our mission in life, and going after our goals. It also was very helpful in preparing me for the rest of my college career at JOC.


Of all the CNR professors you’ve had, which was one of your favorites?

I would say Professor Timothy Rodgers. He taught me in History of Harlem he was my grade adviser. I found him to be easy going and approachable.  


Do you know where you are headed after graduation?

Yes, I have a clear vision to where I'm headed. I look forward to utilizing my liberal arts education to help school-age children in my urban community.
