When I first came to SPC I had been dual
enrolled at my high school and I was really impressed with the education. The
class sizes were great, the location was very ideal for me. I like the online
aspect of being able to take courses so that’s why I chose SPC. St. Pete College
helped me become successful in my field because they’ve helped me along the way
with several classes I’ve taken throughout the years. I have focused my
direction and a choice of where to be employed and what field I want to be
employed in. Some of the best parts of the program were definitely the
faculty and the specific focus on entrepreneurship, what it takes to start
a business, the skills, practices, policies, all of the theories I found have
actually been extremely applicable and true to real life. St. Petersburg College
is getting students job ready at the time of graduation. They’re doing that by
preparing them with real-world scenarios. That’s really helpful as soon as you can
step out into a job interview right after graduation. You can use your
experience what you’ve just learned, and apply that to either getting that
position or getting that new promotion. By really being able to show what you’ve
learned and how you’ve learned that and how you can apply that to your position.
So I think the job readiness is really one area that SPC excels in.
SPC empowered me to be an independent thinker and a leader.
