“The education there is the best. The teachers are the best!”
“I have always wanted to be in the medical field,” said Destine Robertson, a student at HACC’s York Campus in the highly specialized Diagnostic Medical Sonography Program. She said that her decision to go into the program was “The best decision I’ve ever made.”
Getting a degree in health care can turn into a lucrative career, but the cost of a health care education can also be daunting. Destine said, “I have five other brothers and sisters who will eventually want to go to college. And, I didn’t want to put my parents in debt.”
At HACC, Destine can afford her classes while enjoying the many benefits of attending a community college. “I feel like you get a better education here because teachers can focus on you since the class sizes are smaller,” she said.
After graduating, Destine’s goals include getting married, working in her field and saving up for a nice house.
