Rosemont College

My journey with college started with Graduate! Philadelphia over three years ago. I knew that I wanted to change career paths but was not 100% sure what to do or where to go. Graduate! Philadelphia spoke to me about what career path I had presently and what I was interested in. Graduate! Philadelphia also helped me decide what college would be best to fulfill my educational desires. After a few sessions, I decided on Computer Forensics at Community College of Philadelphia.

While I was in Community College of Philadelphia and I was two semesters from completing my Associate’s degree, I was laid off. Instead of falling to pieces, I spoke to individuals who were able to assist me in obtaining scholarships to finish. I finished and graduated from Community College of Philadelphia with Honors and was inducted into Phi Theta Kappa in May 2014.

I went to Graduate! Philadelphia’s College Fair to see what options were available in continuing my education. There were representatives from many colleges and I decided on Rosemont College. Rosemont College offered me the curriculum, location and class schedule that will assist and motivate me to achieve my long-term career goals. I started Rosemont College in September 2014 to obtain my Bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice.

Now in Rosemont College, and with the help of Graduate! Philadelphia, I have excelled beyond my wildest dreams. I am scheduled to graduate in May, 2015. I am now holding a 3.95 G.P.A. and I am a volunteer with Ravens Raising Awareness, which is an organization at Rosemont College that partners with worthy organizations to help the less fortunate. I am grateful that I was asked to join this worthy organization. If it was not for Graduate! Philadelphia and the personal support of Ashley and Denise, I do not feel I would be as successful. I sincerely want to thank Graduate! Philadelphia. You made a difference in my life that you may never understand; you helped me achieve my goals. Know that your work is invaluable to people like myself.

If it was not for Graduate! Philadelphia. . . I do not feel I would be as successful. I sincerely want to thank Graduate! Philadelphia. You made a difference in my life that you may never understand; you helped me achieve my goals.
