    “I want to become an environmental scientist, and COD is laying down the guideline for my first degree. I also want to continue playing tennis when I leave COD, so I’ve learned a lot of time management."

    “COD has helped me grow and become a better student. I've learned how to balance school, basketball and working when I can. Personally, I think I have become more independent. My advice to students who are considering COD would be that it’s a great place to start."

    “I want to choose a career that I will never get bored of doing. And COD is helping me meet many goals. I am still playing the sport I love so I’m excited about that, and I’m furthering my education. Most of my classes are relatively small, which makes it easy to build that relationship with your classmates and teachers.”
