Neither of my parents went to college, and yes, they are still successful, but having a college degree to me is necessary. Even if you have plans that don’t require a degree, and you find out you don’t want to pursue that plan anymore, you have a degree to fall back on just in case. I know my parents are proud of me, and it makes me feel good to know that I am putting in the effort and doing something right that will benefit me in the future.

“As the Board, we will support our leadership team in keeping an open door policy for our students,” Walton said. “This is how we will not only create access, but also support completion. Greater resources to bring students in, greater focus on how to connect with students and who they are at their core, what support services are needed, how and why and much more. Here is the thing – we think we know, and we do to some extent, but we must listen to the voices of our students to truly understand how to best do this.”

“I have been impressed with the growth of RCBC and their partnership with Rowan University, as well as the variety of degrees offered,” Reed said. “I would like to continue to champion the diverse representation of students in the variety of curricula. I would also like to work toward building an aquatics center that includes an indoor track to be used by students and county residents.”

“RCBC has the 3+1 program, and it was an institute where I knew that I would be known by my name and not just a numbered student,” Chaunce said. “My whole experience has been exceptional here. I can say that not every class that I have taken was overly exciting, but I find at least a few golden nuggets in everything I do. The culinary experience has definitely been an exciting journey for me.”

“In comparison to other colleges I researched, Rowan College at Burlington County was affordable,” Marion said. “I also qualified for several grants through RCBC, and my first semester of classes really piqued my interest. I realized ‘I like this. I’m doing very well here.’”

“I heard about RCBC from a friend, and one day I decided to stop by and ask about the English courses. I had a good adviser; I am very thankful because I improved my English, and I found a better job. RCBC has great English professors, and that made me decide to pursue a career.”

“During the Deborah internship program, I was able to work in the kitchen consistently preparing food to exact standards and nutrition, serving the employees in the café and even had the opportunity to interact with many of the patients,” Rivera shared. “It was intriguing for me to be able to work with these specific menus for patients' needs, diets and restrictions.”

“I greatly enjoy being at RCBC,” Berry said. “Math is not the easiest or the most favorite subject for many students; however, there was a very touching moment last semester. Due to COVID-19, many students were missing classes due to illnesses. I knew that I had to do something different to make sure those students did not fall behind, and so I spent additional individual time with them virtually. It helped me get to know them better and see how they really felt about math. On the last day of the semester, before the final, I came to class and was amazed to see that my students brought coffee, doughnuts and a cake for me as a surprise! I was very touched and happy.”

"She jumped right in and helped my students get what they needed (ID cards, parking passes and course textbooks). She was so patient and helpful and knew I needed some support in helping and directing my students. I am forever grateful for her. My students accomplished a lot that class because of her help and guidance.”

“I see so much potential for Saxbys to become a part of RCBC life,” Taylor said. “It may simply be a cafe, but the people behind it have the ability to create strong connections to the community with the space (and coffee) that Saxbys provides. It gives us an opportunity to make mistakes, grow and learn together within a working environment."
