Alumni Spotlight

Micah Scime ’20

“What I like most about this program is how applicable the information is. After learning something in the classroom, I can immediately apply it or relate it to my management internship. The program is very direct, and the knowledge gained from it can immediately be applied into the business world. SUNY Niagara truly is the ‘Smart Place to Start’. Its affordability and welcoming environment- along with the highly professional, caring and knowledgeable instructors to teach and guide you through each semester are just a few of many reasons that SUNY Niagara was the right choice for me. I plan on continuing my education at Buffalo State College and earn my bachelor’s degree. During that time, I will be continuing my management internship and preparing myself as much as possible to be able to grow in a leadership role.”
