"Having a local option for college was very important to me – I couldn’t afford to leave the Dodge City area for school. Luckily, I was able to live and work locally while getting a quality education at the same time.
While at DC3, I spent most of my time participating in the music department, learning music theory and participating in band and vocal music. Along with the great memories, I’ve retained my sight-singing skills, which still help me today.
"I wouldn’t have gotten to where I am today without the amazing faculty and learning environment at DC3. With the ongoing support of the instructors and staff, I was able to achieve more in the field of biochemistry than I ever thought was possible.
My favorite DC3 memories involve spending time studying organic chemistry with my friends in the Academic Success Center. I also remember the profound impact of Dr. Ellis, who sparked my passion for biochemistry in the first place.
I owe so much to the staff of DC3 for helping me transfer to Kansas State University to complete my biochemistry degree with the help of the Bridges to the Future program. That was the first step to where I am now – at the University of Southern California working to get both a PhD in pharmaceutical science and a master’s degree in management of drug development. And I owe it all to DC3.
"Attending Dodge City Community College helped me take classes with a small student to professor ratio. After graduation, it helped with a smooth transition to a larger university. It made sense economically and provided a stellar education at the same time.
"Having an academic scholarship that covered the full cost of my tuition and books to a school that was just two hours from my hometown made going to DC3 a no-brainer for me. And because all of my credits transferred easily, it gave me the start I needed to go on and complete my nursing degree at Grand Canyon University.
Today, I am enjoying a successful career as the director of nursing at an outpatient surgery center that serves approximately 500 cases per month. So, yes, going to DC3 was certainly the right choice for me.
"I first came to DC3 all the way from Canada for the golf team, but I stayed the second year as a student only to complete my associate’s degree. What a difference it’s made! After graduation, I got a job with Starbucks and was quickly able to make my way into helping manage the store. Four years later, I became a digital content producer and copywriter for a digital advertising agency, where I still work today.
I wouldn’t have traded my experience being a Conq for anything. Without the knowledge and people skills I gained and the support of my professors, I wouldn’t be where I am today. And to top it all off, I created lasting memories and friendships that I will cherish forever. I also ate the best biscuits and gravy I’ve ever had – something we don’t have up here in Canada!
Getting my certificate in early childhood education allowed me more options for employment. It also helped open doors and gave me the opportunity to find work in our local community.”
As a single mother, I appreciated the opportunity to further my education in an affordable and supportive environment. I’m now working toward becoming an elementary school teacher in our local school district.”
DC3 provided me with all the tools and experiences I needed to quickly enter a career in my field of study. Shortly after graduating, I was able to land a position as an IT professional with another community college."
The friendly atmosphere this institution possessed from faculty and staff to other scholars have given me lifelong memories that I will cherish throughout my career. I enjoyed the way courses were set up so that none were overlooked."
DC3 gave me the opportunity to study while participating in activities – like Danceline – that I enjoyed. It gave me the start that I needed to get me where I am now – very close to completing a 4-year degree from a large university.
DC3’s flexible course schedule is exactly what I needed to be able to go to school and work at the same time. I’m now on my way to becoming the first one in my family to graduate with a bachelor’s degree.”
