“Just the fact that I'm able to manage being a mom, full-time worker, and attending college says it all.”
Rita Matos chose to study business at HACC so she can move up that metaphorical career ladder. She works as an accounts payable coordinator and said she “would like to understand the back end of everything that ties into what I am doing in my position.”
Rita chose HACC’s Harrisburg Campus because it is conveniently located near her home. She likes the sense of community and the “different cultures you run into” on campus, too.
In addition to working and going to school, Rita is also a mother. When asked about her greatest personal achievement, she said, “Just the fact that I'm able to manage being a mom, full-time worker, and attending college says it all.”
Whether pursuing a second career, continuing your education or taking steps toward a promotion, HACC students like Rita get the education and experiences they need to have it all.
