#MyTriCStory is a series highlighting everyday people in the Tri-C community. Today we meet William, a student at the Eastern Campus in Highland Hills.
#MyTriCStory: What brought you to Tri-C?
William: Learning. I have a thirst for learning.
#MTCS: What are you studying?
W: Physical therapy[CB1
#MTCS: Wow, that’s amazing. How long have you been at Tri-C?
W: This is my second year.
#MTCS: What do you plan to do after graduation?
W: That’s my dilemma. I don’t know if I want to get my associate degree [CB2] or transfer to a four-year school. I mean, Tri-C is upbeat and humble. I’ve been to four-year universities, and I liked the feel of it all. So I’m thinking of transferring.
#MTCS: Oh, but you can do both! If you’ve spent all this time here at Tri-C, you might as well get a degree first and then transfer.
W: Yeah. Yeah, you’re right.
#MTCS: So, before I started interviewing you, you told me that you might not be a typical Tri-C student. What advice would you give someone who doesn’t consider themselves a “typical” student?
W: It doesn’t matter if you come from a rougher upbringing. It doesn’t matter where you come from. At least try. It doesn’t matter what someone may say to
