MCC prepared Connie Kotecki to transfer to Rockford University to pursue a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing.
Connie Kotecki of Harvard, a busy mom of three, returned to MCC in Summer 2014 to move closer to her goal of becoming a nurse. She updated some of her math and science courses as she completed prerequisites for the nursing program curriculum. She enrolled in algebra, chemistry, microbiology, statistics and anatomy and physiology. This fall, she will transfer to Rockford University, where she received the prestigious Dean Scholarship and will pursue a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing. She earned an associate in arts degree from Illinois Valley Community College in 2000, before moving to McHenry County.
“I chose to attend MCC because it was close to home, it offered the courses I needed with convenient class times to fit my busy schedule, and it was reasonably priced. As a busy mom and returning student, MCC really worked for me because I felt like I received a great education while not having to travel too far. It’s fantastic to have this great school right here in McHenry County. I am happy I chose to go here and take advantage of their many opportunities.
“I definitely recommend MCC to prospective students! MCC is a great choice for any age and varied scenarios and stages of life. MCC has something to offer everyone. You can earn an associate degree, choose from one of the many certificate programs, complete prerequisites for other colleges or take a class just for fun. What I didn’t realize before I stepped onto campus, was just what a great education I would receive from top-notch and compassionate instructors who truly care about your success and goals. The personalized attention and commitment my teachers showed to me and my peers was outstanding!
MCC offers many services and tools that will help you succeed with your education and career. I highly recommend utilizing the Sage Learning Center while you are attending MCC. There, you will have access to knowledgeable tutors who will help you every step of the way with coursework that you may find challenging. This is a surefire way to boost your grades and your confidence!”
