BC3 Student Ambassador Profiles

 

 

 

Brianna Garretson

 

Why did you choose to be a BC3 Ambassador?

I chose to be an Ambassador because I want to show other students why BC3 is the best school to start at. Also, being an ambassador is a good way to get involved in the school.

What is the best thing about BC3?

The best thing about BC3 is the class size. The classes are small enough that I have no trouble getting one on one time with my professors. I also like the size of the campus. It is very easy to locate everything, and there is really no way to get lost.

Advice to prospective students

My advice for future students would be to make sure you study. Students shouldn't think that just because it is a community college that they can slack off. Classes here are just as hard as anywhere else.

After BC3, I plan to...

attend PITT's social work program that is coming to BC3's campus. I am studying to become an adoption counselor, and PITT offers me the courses that I need at a reasonable price.

I'm looking forward to the next semester because...

I will get to be with all my friends again and the sooner school starts the sooner I will be able to get on with my education and start my career.

Alecia Norfleet

 

Why did you choose to be a BC3 Ambassador?

I felt that becoming a BC3 Student Ambassador would allow me to share my experiences with the college to future prospective fellow students by giving them my honest opinion, based on my own insight, as to why BC3 is the best choice from its low tuition to the invaluable education that our BC3 professors provide.

What is the best thing about BC3?

The amount of students per class is definitely the plus in comparison to many other colleges that will accomodate hundreds and sometimes thousands of students per classroom. BC3's small classes allows us students to develop a "personal" intellectual and educational relationship with the new learned knowledge.

Advice to prospective students

Coming into a new atmosphere within a different environment is always a little challenging; nevertheless, if difficulty occurs with a class(es), our BC3 advisors are always willing to help and titors are always available.

After BC3, I plan to...

enroll into Pitt in their Social Work Program; however, it will be on the BC3 campus! Pitt has collaborated with BC3 by bringing their Social Work classes, so that earning my master's degree will be much easier to obtain because I do not have to relocate to Pittsburgh, but can remain in the vicinity of the County of Butler!

I'm looking forward to this semester because...

I will be another step closer to achieving my associate degrees in social work and fine arts when I begin the fall semester to accomplish, yet, another feat that once upon a time appeared to me to be all thwarted goals.

Cary Gregor

 

Why did you choose to be a BC3 Ambassador?

I chose to become a BC3 student ambassador because I am a mother and a nontraditional student. I think it is important to let other people in my situation know it is never too late to go back to school, and start a new career.

What is the best thing about BC3?

The two best things about BC3 is the class flexibility, and the faculty. There are class times for any type of schedule, so you are able to work, or take care of your family, and attend school. The dedicated faculty BC3 has is exceptional as well. I have never met anyone on campus who was not willing to help you in any way possible, even if they didn't know the answer themselves. The students are definitely their number one priority.

Advice to prospective students

Take advantage of what is offered to you as a student at BC3. Tutoring is free, and the tutors are often on a similar path as you are. I have had so much success using the tutoring facility at BC3. Also, apply for scholarships, I have been fortunate enough to receive two, and they have almost covered my fall tuition each year!

After BC3, I plan to...

transfer to Chatham University and pursue my BSN, and hopefully work as an R.N. for Butler Health System.
