"I live at home with my family, so SUNY Adirondack just made sense for me geographically and economically. I went to Queensbury High School and heard great things about the Graphic Design program here.

I am very introverted so I wanted to attend a smaller college. I visited Oswego, but it just wasn’t for me. The small class sizes here have really helped to bring me out of my shell, and being with the same core group of people in almost every class makes for a very comfortable setting. Nick Paigo has been a great mentor to me, I have him for nearly every class, too.

I haven’t decided exactly what I want to do next, but I know that I want to pursue a bachelor’s degree. I am leaning towards SUNY Empire State College so that I can take classes online and at the same time, I can jump into the workforce and start gaining experience."
