"Randolph Community College helped me to prepare socially and mentally for my time at the University of North Carolina. It was a good transition from my small high school to the large university."
Josh Brown graduated from Randolph Community College’s Associate in Arts (College Transfer) program in 2007 and transferred to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, one of the top schools in the state. He viewed RCC as a great stepping stone in his education. “RCC helped me to prepare socially and mentally for my time at UNC,” said Josh. “It was a good transition from my small high school to the large university.”“Starting at RCC is a decision I’m glad I made. It was the perfect transition from high school to UNC, and saved me a decent amount of money in the process,” continued Josh.
Josh got involved in the student life at RCC, participating in the Student Government Association and as a member of the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society. “My fondest memory is staying in the Student Lounge until 2 a.m. one morning making campaign posters and taking chocolate syrup shots with Charles Skeen and Katie Webb,” he said.
But he was serious about his studies, too. He said RCC instructors Grey Sanders, Danielle Richardson, and Ann Cutter made a big impact on his life. “They really prepared me for life at the university.”
“After graduating from UNC, I would never have thought I’d come back to work at RCC, but that’s exactly what I’m doing. I obtained my bachelor’s degree in biology and I’m working in Student Services at RCC while in the application process for graduate school. My plan is to get my master’s degree in environmental studies with my concentration being environmental policy.”
