Why I chose Rio: All through out my life I played soccer so Rio’s title-winning soccer team really appealed to me. The affordable prices and small class sizes were also a really great opportunity for me and my family.
Deciding my major: Everyone in my family is involved in business, so I wanted to continue that tradition because, while I didn’t know exactly what I wanted to do, I knew that a business degree could provide me with a wide variety of opportunities.
My favorite thing about Rio: Rio is a great community with wonderful people. I’ve made a lot of friends in my classes. The staff and faculty are really friendly and caring.
My favorite class: Biology with Virginia Abernathy has been an amazing class. It’s really interesting learning about humans, plants and animals and what makes up everything in our world.
Plans after graduating from Rio: I’m still deciding what I want to do after I graduate. I have an opportunity this summer to work in landscaping, so I’m hoping to see if that’s a business I’m interested in pursuing.
