I didn’t think that college would ever be something that would be an opportunity for me but Columbia College empowered me to work full-time during the day, take care of my son in the evening, and do online classes at night and while he napped on the weekends. I am thankful that I have been able to use my journey – my experiences – and my education from Columbia College to advocate for other single mothers to pursue higher education.
Joining Columbia College changed my life. Before enrolling, I was experiencing my most unsuccessful years, losing the things that gave my life meaning. In my time with Columbia, I have found the steps to rebuild my life and myself. My success here is exactly what I need to redefine how I see myself and relocate my self-esteem.
As a single mother working two jobs, Columbia College has helped me by allowing me to take six courses a semester while juggling life, work, and school. The amazing staff and instructors are so nice and understanding. They know exactly how hard you must work to accomplish your goals, and they are with you the whole way.
