Graduated, AAS degree
Neli became interested in the Criminal Justice program partly due to her own personal experience with the justice system. After job shadowing with a probation officer and a juvenile correction officer, she became sure of her career choice.
“When we first decided to go to college, [my sister and I] didn't know what we wanted to study,” said Neli. “Doing a job shadow is a great way to learn about a career. After that I knew for sure. We got a lot of support, which was important. If we didn’t understand something, the tutors worked with us one-on-one. They push you to do better and get it right.”
