Canadian student Andrea Williams visited several schools before deciding that Johnson State College was the right place for her. Relocating 13 hours from her home in Nova Scotia to Vermont may sound like quite the journey, but Andrea was up for the challenge. Many of her classmates chose colleges that were close to home, yet she was ready for adventure.
Within the first few weeks of school Andrea knew she made the right choice. “Johnson had a home feeling, it makes me feel safe, and the people here are my second family.”
Part of that second family is located in Admissions, where Andrea landed a job shortly after starting school. She has worked there all four years and has offered to come back after graduation to work with incoming students.
Director of Admissions, Patrick Rogers said, “Andrea was a superb tour guide and leader on the JSC campus.” Everyone in Admissions knew when Andrea had been through the office because she leaves her mark: Numerous Canadian flag stickers have been found all throughout the Admissions Department!
“The people in Admissions are my family, friends and support system,” says Andrea. “As a part of the Admissions Team I was exposed to so much more than I thought was possible. I now have the confidence to walk around and say, ‘This was my home, and you should come here too!’
