Overall Rating

I have attended Metro State for three years and currently a junior. My first year was an asssimilation process in which i found my mentors ,one an advisor, Donelyn Jones and the other, Dr. Jacqueline McLeod, who is a African American History Professor.I've learned that it is important to have mmentors while in college because the educational growth that is administered by them is very profound indeed, it is one that hasl enhanced my knowledge in gaining a perspective of what higher education has to offer to those who continue to challenge the desire to learn.In my three years at Metro State College i have received two scholarships, The Pamela McIntyre Scholarship and The Alexander Foundation Scholarship. These scholarships have further excelerated my passion for higher education.My first two years of college i was homeles.With the guidance and compassion received thruogh my advisor and teachers at Mertro, this has prompted me to strive for inreased development to reach my goal of graduation.I love this school because it has made me a beeter person.The opportunity is here at Metro State College and i accept the challenge.
