Out of high school and ready for the college experience, I chose to attend a four year university. I quickly got lost in the hustle and bustle of a large campus and felt more like a number than a person. Contemplating my future as a student I began to search for other options to further my education. Being the skeptic I am, I had to check out the Licking Valley Campus in person. From the moment I walked in the front door I felt like a person and no longer a number, I saw faces I actually recognized, and the staff answered all my questions. Before that day my course of study was up in the air. Little did I think almost three years later, with the help of awesome instructors and a drive to better my life, I would be one semester away from making my dream of becoming a Registered Nurse not just a reality, but my reality!
