I started at Niagara County Community College (NCCC) as a Liberal Arts major and immediately changed to Business Administration because of how much I enjoyed the classes. Choosing a college was not an easy decision for me. I chose NCCC because I have very strong ties to my community, and I wanted to be able to earn a degree while still being active on the family farm. Looking back, I am so glad that I chose NCCC. My plan is to transfer to Alfred State where I will complete my bachelor’s degree in Business Administration and then obtain another degree in Agriculture Business and possibly Agriculture Science.
