A Conversation with the Barron Family Interviewed by Cindy Carter, Director of Admissions

Meet Steve, Sara, Mitch and Olivia

All of them have taken classes at Bay College at one time or another. CC: First of all, thanks for taking the time to talk with me. I know your family has benefited from having Bay College here in our community and I was hoping you could share your experiences. CC: Congrats Mitch on completing your first two years at Bay and your upcoming transfer to CMU! Mitch: I’m transferring my full two years of Bay credits to CMU to pursue a Chemistry Degree.


CC: Congratulations to you also Olivia on completing your first Bay College course this summer. Plus, you’re starting at Bay in the fall.

Olivia: I do plan to transfer from Bay later. I’m interested in actuary science and since CMU does have the program, I may end up at CMU. CC: Great! Mitch will be able to show you around Central!

uccess {here}

CC: How did the decision to attend Bay College develop? Mitch: I toured various college campuses. Bay’s chemistry lab was comparable, if not more superior, to the chemistry labs at the university level. I have enjoyed the smaller campus. Olivia: Bay is close to home. I also recently learned about the Honors Program at Bay College which I’m very excited about.

CC: As parents, what have you found to be the most helpful when making college decisions? Steve: The first year of college has a lot to do with students learning discipline and how to handle college. Bay has helped Mitch prepare for transfer to CMU. Sara: Take time to tour college campuses. Begin making comparisons and list advantages/ disadvantages of each school to make the best decision. Steve: Mitch is entering his third year of college and is still debt free thanks to Bay.

Thank you and congratulations to the Barron’s!
