For Rowan College at Burlington County student Danielle DeCarolis, choosing a major was a process that took her in a direction she never thought she wanted. DeCarolis, a self-proclaimed “workaholic,” has spent the last 14 years at her job at a Philadelphia-area financial institution. During that time, she honed her supervisory skills while working her way up the ladder and coming to the realization that business was her forte.

“You have to understand that life is not always sweet; life gives you things to help you grow, and I believe everything I’ve been through was a stepping stone to help me get to where I am now,” Wilson said. “I feel like God’s blessed me, and it’s a story for someone to hear.”

“RCBC was that big step I took where I was exposed to materials and inspiration from faculty which allowed my interests to develop over time,” Wyllis said. “I was really reserved when I had just entered RCBC, but getting involved with Phi Theta Kappa and doing research with Professor Sherlock were major stepping stones for me.”

“Going to RCBC is much cheaper than a four-year, but with no sacrifice to the quality of learning,” Christopher said. “I would receive the same quality of education as I would for my first two years at a four-year school, but I would be able to take advantage of programs such as EOF, NJSTARS, the Statewide Transfer Program (earn an associate at community college and 4-year institutions must accept all credits), etc. These programs allowed me to go to RCBC without loans and will help me in the future at Rutgers.”

“Essentially, the main goal of my life is to plant trees under whose shade I do not plan to sit,” Robinson shared. “Despite the different aspects of my life, each holds true to this principle. I strive to be of service to others. As a future educator, my goal is to impact children by instilling hope and readiness to a promising future. I want to teach students what many people in my generation and earlier never learned or learned too late.”

“Now I have enough confidence to help and serve others with my skills, which is what I love to do,” Ceballos Gonzalez said. “Moreover, being the first one to go to college from my family is a great personal accomplishment for me. I started a new trend, opening doors for a better future, not just for myself but for my family and everyone I meet.”

“Since attending RCBC, I have attempted to heavily immerse myself in the college’s community as well as my own community,” Feinberg shared. “I have been an RCBC Service-Learning Scholar for the past two years. By being a Service-Learning Scholar, I perform volunteer work for RCBC, such as with the food pantry and blood drives. Due to this program, I have also obtained community service hours at Woodford Cedar Run. In addition to these co-curricular activities, I have managed to continue working at my local retirement community, Medford Leas. At Medford Leas, I provide food service to the residents and make memorable relationships with the elders of my community.”

“I chose RCBC because it is a great school, I deserved to further my education and I knew it would make my mother proud,” Woodard said. “I feel like she deserves that much, here or in spirit. The legacy my mother created was a hustling mentality. No matter what situation I have ever found myself in, I knew I would get out of it because this mouth is always open ready to be fed.”

“I think RCBC has made incredible strides to make our courses and materials available to us virtually when otherwise our education would be put on hold,” Scillieri said. “RCBC also provides many great resources and programs to help assist with higher education costs.”

“The RCBC 3+1 program offered me an excellent education and gave me the opportunity to save the money associated with most other bachelor’s programs,” Barsocchi said. “I was able to attend a school close to home and continued to work throughout the program. This truly helped me to build my resume through job and volunteer experiences.”
