“After my first term, I could see how my time at RCBC set me up with a good foundation of knowledge to be successful in the anatomy, physiology and biochemistry-heavy course load,” Randazzo recalled.

“Something I've always talked about was how great of a time I had at RCBC because I think the staff do a good job of making everyone feel included. The events were always my favorite thing. You walk outside of class, and there was always something going on -- a bouncy house, goat yoga, etc. It was very nice to see that because I didn’t have that image of college in my head. It just felt like a community. That’s what I feel like is very present in those events -- you could tell people really care.”

“From the moment I walked in, I felt at ease,” Hernandez recalled. “Not only was the campus in my hometown, but it offered friendly teachers and staff, great vibes from the students and exceptional education. The minds of the teachers are brilliant, and they work hard to ensure their students have the best schooling that they could provide. Another reason why I chose RCBC was because it was a perfect starting point for me to get my feet wet and learn more about college expectations. It offered me the flexibility to focus on a full-time job while still attending school. It turned out that RCBC was the best choice for me, and I highly recommend it for other individuals looking to get a great education.”

“I knew RCBC had a wonderful culinary and pastry program, so that was one of the reasons I wanted to go to RCBC compared to other schools in the area,” Seguin said. “Plus, I took out loans and going to RCBC really helped keep costs down.”

For Rowan College at Burlington County student Danielle DeCarolis, choosing a major was a process that took her in a direction she never thought she wanted. DeCarolis, a self-proclaimed “workaholic,” has spent the last 14 years at her job at a Philadelphia-area financial institution. During that time, she honed her supervisory skills while working her way up the ladder and coming to the realization that business was her forte.

“You have to understand that life is not always sweet; life gives you things to help you grow, and I believe everything I’ve been through was a stepping stone to help me get to where I am now,” Wilson said. “I feel like God’s blessed me, and it’s a story for someone to hear.”

“RCBC was that big step I took where I was exposed to materials and inspiration from faculty which allowed my interests to develop over time,” Wyllis said. “I was really reserved when I had just entered RCBC, but getting involved with Phi Theta Kappa and doing research with Professor Sherlock were major stepping stones for me.”

“Going to RCBC is much cheaper than a four-year, but with no sacrifice to the quality of learning,” Christopher said. “I would receive the same quality of education as I would for my first two years at a four-year school, but I would be able to take advantage of programs such as EOF, NJSTARS, the Statewide Transfer Program (earn an associate at community college and 4-year institutions must accept all credits), etc. These programs allowed me to go to RCBC without loans and will help me in the future at Rutgers.”

“Essentially, the main goal of my life is to plant trees under whose shade I do not plan to sit,” Robinson shared. “Despite the different aspects of my life, each holds true to this principle. I strive to be of service to others. As a future educator, my goal is to impact children by instilling hope and readiness to a promising future. I want to teach students what many people in my generation and earlier never learned or learned too late.”

“Now I have enough confidence to help and serve others with my skills, which is what I love to do,” Ceballos Gonzalez said. “Moreover, being the first one to go to college from my family is a great personal accomplishment for me. I started a new trend, opening doors for a better future, not just for myself but for my family and everyone I meet.”
