Vera Drye ’13 Human Resources Analyst – Rowan-Cabarrus Community College

“ The SEGS program is a huge confidence builder! After completion of the program, it provided me with the confidence I needed to apply for jobs I probably would have overlooked in the past. For instance, the job I landed after completing the program was a much higher rated job than I previously held. I knew that I had the intelligence and ability to be successful and the program gave me the confidence to convince the hiring committee of the same! I cannot say enough about the boost in confidence and self-esteem Catawba’s SEGS program instilled in me.

“ Once you make the decision to return to school, jump right in. Don’t hesitate.”

“ I chose Catawba

“ The Catawba College SEGS program appealed to me because it was targeted at individuals who had experience in the workforce. Students were encouraged to link their real world experience with the curriculum being presented. The block structure of classes worked very well for me because of the ability to focus solely on one class at a time and build upon that knowledge.

because I had heard nothing but great things about the school from others who had previously attended. “ The Block schedule allowed me to focus on one class at a time and made my life as a mother who also worked full-time a lot less hectic. “ I loved the staff and my classmates. I felt like there were always people supporting me and encouraging me to succeed. It was such an incredible feeling.

“ Catawba provided me a solid educational foundation for graduate school. I am currently working on my master’s degree and plan on continuing my education as I work towards my doctorate.”

EVENING P ROG R AM

“ The class sizes were perfect for learning – enough students to get varying opinions but not too many to fill a lecture hall.

“ What set Catawba apart from other colleges that I attended was the feeling that the professors and staff genuinely cared about me and what I planned to do with the higher level of learning that they were exposing me to each class meeting.” Located in historic Salisbury, N.C., a city of 30,000 people.
