One of the hardest choices in life is choosing which college to attend. I could have gone to any college, but I started looking at community colleges for financial reasons. When I finally decided on Blue Ridge Community College (BRCC) and took my first tour, I quickly fell in love with the school. There are walking trails everywhere, and the classroom sizes are perfect for learning. Also, my instructors make it a point to get to know me rather than seeing me as a number on a class roster. As I started my second year at BRCC, I decided to become more involved. I joined SGA as vice president, became a school ambassador, and was appointed to the position of Special Populations Chair on the N4CSGA Executive Board. I have learned invaluable life skills from these activities such as networking, communication, multi-tasking, and flexibility that will help me greatly at a four-year university and in my chosen career as an archaeologist. I have had so many wonderful opportunities made available to me during my time at BRCC, and I have had many wonderful instructors. I will always treasure my time here.
