Small classes, close to home, A+ scholarship, and a good education program are the things that brought Caitlin to SFCC.

Caitlin’s major is elementary and secondary education with a minor in math. Her favorite class has been Foundations of Education in a Diverse Society with Cara Barth-Fagan. In this class, she read “Real Talk for Real Teachers” that opened her eyes to the real world of teaching.

Caitlin plans to transfer to CMU to complete a bachelor’s in education. Personally, she looks forward to settling down and having a family. She enjoys coloring, baking, Netflix, and spending time with family.

At SFCC, Caitlin has learned making new friends and attending activities make for a great college experience. “Memories you make here will stick with you,” Caitlin says. “SFCC is so much fun. The teachers and staff make sure everyone feels welcome. Coming to SFCC was the best decision.”

Johnny works as a writing tutor to help fellow students and is involved in SFCC’s theatre productions.

His major is Digital Marketing, and he plans to earn a bachelor’s in marketing with emphasis in digital marketing. Eventually, Johnny wants to use his skills for non-profit organizations.

His favorite classes have been English Composition I and II taught by Dr. Amanda Drake. Johnny says, “Dr. Drake changed my initial thought about writing as a talent to writing as a skill, which means a lot of practice!”

He spends time in Proctor Library studying to earn As but likes to socialize and enjoys singing, dancing, cooking, acting, and calligraphy. He loves Starbucks coffee, matcha tea and essential oils for meditation.

At SFCC, Johnny has learned communication is valuable for connecting with others and solving problems. Also, showing kindness and patience are important as well as meditation and calmness.
