Tri-C Student will Graduate Teal and Transfer to Scarlet and Gray
May 10, 2016
Tri-C’s Western Campus offers a wide variety of resources to assist students. From counseling to student clubs to the career center, students have many options to choose from when it comes to getting the help they need. One such student took advantage of these resources and in doing so, found her niche within the career center.
Sue Scheutzow was born and raised in Northeast Ohio. In 2006, she relocated to Charlotte, North Carolina. While there, she enrolled at Central Piedmont Community College, unsure of what her major might be but wanting to take steps toward a degree. These steps were put on hold in 2012 when family circumstances pulled her away from her studies, bringing Sue back to Ohio to help care for her mother. Despite the change of scenery, Sue’s motivation remained high and she enrolled at Tri-C the following summer.
Still unsure of which direction or major she should choose, Sue settled on a business degree. However, the West Campus Career Center changed that path for her. With all the help she found in the career center, Sue discovered her purpose – to earn a degree that would allow her to help people the way she had been helped.
Sue has been working at the West Campus Career Center for nearly two years in a co-op position. “It has been the best employment for me, no question about it,” she said. “I love it here.”
Sue will graduate in May 2016 with an Associate of Arts degree. She plans to transfer to The Ohio State University this fall to study social work.
“My life has completely transformed because of Tri-C. Working at the College has been nothing short of amazing, and working in the career center has given me a whole new perspective on helping people. Had it not been for this, I definitely wouldn’t be the person I am today.”
