Success Stories

A portrait of Jazlee on campus at Goldey-Beacom College

I chose to come to GBC mostly because of the affordability, but also because it’s close to home. I felt like the smaller campus was a better fit for me just because I didn’t want to go to a huge university and just be a number. I wanted to be somebody, I wanted to be a leader and I wanted to be a part of organizations and involved on campus because that’s how I was in high school.
