Amy Herz isn't sure about a future career. But she is sure about College of DuPage.

As a Presidential Scholar, Herz received a full-tuition scholarship and enrollment in COD's Honors program and the Phi Theta Kappa Honors Society. It was an offer she couldn't pass up.

"Having the presidential scholarship really pushes me to keep my grades up and take more classes so I have something to be proud of when I graduate and transfer," she said. "Going into college, I had no idea what to pursue, but after taking some music courses I'm getting a better idea of what I like studying."

She loves music and math, and pursuing a career in musical engineering would tie these two interests together. Another love is California, and she'd like to transfer to a school there so she can take advantage of the warm weather and culture.

"None of my plans are set in stone, but I just hope that I end up with a career that I enjoy going to every day," she said.
