Christina Guay graduates June 8 with an Associate of Arts degree. Here, she tells her Columbus State story in her own words.
I applied to Columbus State after I graduated from high school because it was a more affordable and flexible way to attend classes. I ended up getting a scholarship for my first three quarters, which helped a lot.
This is my sixth quarter at Columbus State and I am very thankful for my amazing professors over the past two years. They have made school interesting and going to this school has allowed me to keep up with a part-time job while taking between 15 and 18 credits every quarter.
Through volunteer work, I met a lot of people suffering from different disorders, which led me to a potential career path working with autistic children. I would like to go into a field such as Art Therapy where I can help children who did not grow up with the best life at home, or I would like to go into any field where I can work with people to help make their lives better.
The Associate of Arts / Associate of Science is a general-purpose transfer degree. It represents the first two years of a bachelor's degree, and can be transferred to all public Ohio colleges.
