“I decided to major in history because I love studying what has gone on in the world, why it happened, and how can we learn from it. Coming here allowed me to stay involved in the local community, which I could not have done if I had gone elsewhere. WestConn has a lot of opportunities to offer and they are there for you to take advantage of. If you get involved on campus, the more likely you are to be successful both in and out of the classroom.”
