“I have been attending classes as part of the Advance Business program at CSCC’s Monroe County Center since the fall semester of 2019. My experience there has been a great one, so far! With the convenient location and class schedules, it has provided me the opportunity to continue my education, despite working full-time.”

“Prior to coming to CSCC’s Monroe County Center, I had no hands-on experience in anything and was clueless on how things physically worked. I was the type of person that understood the theory via STEAM, but had never applied it. After the program, I can confidently say that I have learned a combination of different skills that will not only serve me academically, but they will also serve me throughout a lifetime.”

I am so thankful I did!”
