MTC gave me the tools and confidence I needed to transfer to a four-year school.
At home, I started working at Cracker Barrel. The pay seemed great to a nineteen-year-old with no responsibility. Then I received a brochure from Midlands Technical College’sDepartment. I had never thought about going to MTC until I read it. My mindset was that technical colleges were designed for people who weren’t that bright and just needed a quick job. Still, I dropped by the admissions office one day and put in my application. I was admitted the same day.
I got involved in many programs at MTC. In addition to my CCE classes, I took a lot of different classes to try to determine what my major would be at a four-year school. My classes were so diverse. The stories of the people I met on campus were wonderful. I was able to get my grades up and my passion for community service was ignited. With all these different experiences, coming to MTC made learning fun.
"I think what helped the most was having caring advisors and instructors who forced me to think critically and made me aim for the stars."
I’ve since graduated from The University of South Carolina with a Bachelor’s of Arts in Women’s and Gender Studies. I actually gained employment at Midlands Technical College in the Human Resources Department as the temporary employment specialist.
