Meet Michelle: Veteran, Criminal Justice Student
“How often can you get an education from a professor from a major college without paying a huge tuition?”
Michelle Anderson likes the flexibility and options she found at HACC. Plus, she said, “They are also incredibly generous to their veterans.”
HACC has Military and Veteran Affairs Offices at every campus that provide resources for veterans, eligible dependents, members of the Guard and Reserves and active duty personnel.
She added, “There are a ton of programs and various opportunities. So many options for classes, and you really are getting a stellar education without paying an arm and a leg.”
Michelle is studying criminal justice at HACC’s Harrisburg Campus and wants to pursue a career in criminal profiling after she graduates. She said, “I find law to be incredibly interesting. It’s like a constant puzzle.”
Her greatest personal achievement is “Overcoming all the adversity in my life to continue coming to school to better myself.”
