In 1937, Meridian Community College (MCC) was founded as a part of Meridian High School in the local school system. In 1965, the College also formerly known as Meridian Junior College moved from its original location to its present location. In 1970, the College merged with the historically T.J. Harris Junior College according to a federal court order to the Meridian Municipal Separate School System. There were more than 400 students and faculty joined the MJC campus. In 1980, Meridian Junior College established its own district and Board of Trustees. In 1987, the College officially changed its name to Meridian Community College to reflect its mission and the diversity it provides to a growing community (http://www.meridiancc.edu/Assets/1pdfs/catalog/MCC_Catalog_2015-2016_Book.pdf).
Brightwater Community College System is a rapidly growing community college system located in the central Georgia area. This community college system is comprised of four separate colleges and a systems office located in downtown Atlanta; these colleges are the Cobb County College (CCC), Atlanta Metropolitan College (AMC), Brightwater North College (BNC), and Brightwater Macon College (BMC). Brightwater has an unduplicated student headcount of 75,000 and the colleges enrollment has consistently grown year over year. At the helm of the college system is the system’s President Dr. James Lowe; Lowe has served as the President of the college system for 17 years and has seen the college grow from one standalone college in downtown Atlanta to the 4 college system that exists today. Lowe is planning to announced a three-year succession plan at the end of which he plans to step down from the role of President and turn the reigns of the institution over to another individual. Part of Lowe’s three-year plan involves a realignment of the organization’s instructional and student services to meet the future needs of Brightwater.
I believe If accepted into Appalachian State University I would exude in both academically and both socially. Appalachian provides many appealing aspects to me, prominently their historical academic programs. Now as a 1st Generation, child of Mexican immigrants I was expected to attend a college in the city notorious for large classes and a standard picturebook college. When I first heard of appalachian I was in awe because it was everything I was not told about. The teenager in me had to investigate more, and the more I read about the university the more I fell in love. If I were to be accepted I would permanently reside in their campus, which would put me out of my comfort zone being that I’ve been in Cary my whole life and was born in New
Originally many schools, including some post-secondary colleges, were designed as factories to train workers (Ackoff & Greenberg, 2008). With a focus on reading, writing, and arithmetic, individuals gained skills needed to complete robotic instructions, but unfortunately, not problem-solving techniques. This concept is still present in many of our schooling systems today including some of classes and graduation tracks at Your State Community College (YSCC). Founded in 1968, YSCC serves about 6,000 students preparing them for jobs in both academic and trade careers. Unfortunately, many of the students who enter the school do not score high enough on the placement examination and need remedial courses prior to taking college-level Math

I would be an excellent fit for Appalachian State University and am eager to both embark on this new path of life and better myself as a person. I am determined to fulfill my potential and am certain that enrolling in Appalachian State would help me do so. Appalachian State provides numerous educational opportunities for its students and I would be ecstatic to be those students. I wish to pursue a career in physics and Appalachian's well-trained teachers, research-based learning, and educational rigor rigorous would give me an advantage when pursuing a job and following my passion. Appalachian State University is an outstanding school and I would love to be a part of
Southern Connecticut State University (SCSU) is a nonprofit university that offers exemplary undergraduate and graduate education in the liberal arts and professional disciplines. During my time at SCSU, I am fortunate to have worked as a student worker and currently I work as a graduate assistant for the Community Alliance for Research and Engagement (CARE) program. Being able to serve as a graduate assistant in a nonprofit university encompasses a great deal of responsibilities and reward. For instance, I work with New haven residents to identify and tackle social and health issues identified by the community. I also work alongside the resident partners to build relationships with other neighborhood leaders and community organizations who have diverse knowledge, expertise, and skills. In addition, I help to create health activities with community residents, conduct outreach about neighborhood-level projects, and assist with research-related activities.

Baltimore City Community College (BCCC) receives about $40 million annually as a state run community college in Maryland although most community colleges are financed and run by local governments (Cox, E, 2017; Richman, T & Bowie, L, 2017). BCCC has been under fire for several years because of its graduation rates and accreditation problems (Richman, T & Bowie, L, 2017). In addition, the General Assembly legislated that BCCC realign the college to better serve the citizen of Baltimore city and its students. BCCC responded to that mandate by joining Achieving the Dream (ATD), a network of 220 community colleges around the nation to help improve student outcomes through leadership training and data analysis (Richman, T & Bowie, L,
As Hawai‘i Community College establishes a Natural Science program at the Palamanui campus starting this fall semester, we are offering scholarships for students in the founding cohort.
I am interested in Central Connecticut State University because it offers a solid Engineering program. Central has a beautiful campus and both my Father and Mother attended Central Connecticut State University. CCSU has a small campus with a relatively small student body. I value the oppurtunity to have a more personal relationship with my

It's May of my senior year and part of our High School and Beyond Plan is to participate in a weeklong job shadow in a job field that suits our interests. Originally agriculture was the path I had chosen. However, I had decided to select a job shadow in the healthcare field. You see, in November of my senior year, my great-grandmother passed away. Tragically, she had fallen outside and was not found until later in the evening. The ambulance was called and I watched my parents, neighbor & teacher rush to the scene and attempt to save her life. As dramatic as this might sound it was the reality
There is a State University video and it seems cool. It offers a lot of majors and the school is nearby the house. One time he visited the school and has a tour with his parents. There is one tour guide that assist them to the whole University and it seems that he doesn’t know what he’s doing and they wasn’t able to complete the tour.
