I knew I wanted to work in the education field, but it was Lorna Ford who introduced me to Early Childhood Education. Dodge City Community College laid the foundation for my career and the love that I have for children."
DC3 promoted an atmosphere that helped me acquire a solid foundation in science, as well as giving me the opportunity to golf competitively. Over the past years I have continued to grow in my appreciation for choosing to attend DC3."
Thanks to DC3, its scholarships, and premium learning and teaching, I got the confidence and means to be able to transfer to a university where I double-majored in Communications and American Studies. I have returned home to France, where I received my Master's degree in teaching where I am doing my dream job of teaching English to junior high and high school students. None of that would have been possible without Dodge City Community College. DC3 offered me an incredible learning environment, a Learning Center, computer labs, social clubs, and the opportunity to learn in small classes with professors who really cared about us, our success, and who were always available after class!"
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."
The Conquistador is not just an image for a wonderful college but it is unity that cannot be broken. DC3 helped me by learning how to be a better student and individual. I chose DC3 to continue to play baseball and receive a better education to help me propel forward in life. I am now achieving my MBA in Finance and Accounting and would not be here without DC3's amazing community! Conqs for life!"
I chose DC3 not only because of it being local and the low price, but also because it offered the exact degree I was wishing to pursue. Thanks to the education I received, I was able to land my current position of IT Coordinator at another college shortly after graduation."
“DCCC is an awesome place for both sports as well as academics. Our cross country and track teams were like a large family.”
I chose DC3 because it's HOME and I was offered a scholarship to play in the band. As a photographer for the student newspaper, I worked the sidelines alongside the professional photographers and learned a lot about the business. After graduation, I became an intern at Rocking M Radio and in 2017, I became the General Manager. At DC3, the people I met and the connections I made because of my time at DC3, has made all the difference in my career."
Dodge City Community College was my first life choice as an independent person, and DC3 provided me with a strong foundation to emerge as a trusted business professional. Through 15 years of business ownership and years of volunteer work, I am so proud and happy to reflect upon the opportunities that DC3 brought to my eyes, as seeing is believing. I am a Conquistador forever!"
“After traveling the globe as U.S. Army Paratrooper to this day one of my most memorable experiences was my year at Dodge City Community College. I would do it all again!”
~ Richard A Matkin (Ret) U.S. Army AIRBORNE, Class of 1978-1979
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."
Attending Dodge City Community College was one of the best choices I made. It was affordable, close, and had a low student to professor ratio."
Dodge City Community College helped me to become who I am today. I chose DC3 because I was awarded a scholarship for golf. My coach instilled a toughness in me that I have today, pushing me to become a better person and man in all that I did. I am now giving back by being a high school math teacher and golf coach at Garden City High School."
I chose to attend Dodge City Community College based on the affordability as well as the convenience. When I graduated high school, I wasn't sure what I wanted to do. Like many high school graduates in Southwest Kansas, I wasn't even sure what was available to me. DC3 provided the stepping stone from where I was at the time to where I didn't even know I wanted to be. DC3 bridged this gap in an affordable way and paved the way for my future success."
DC3 has helped me further my education and achieve my goal of graduation from a university. I chose DC3 because I had the opportunity to jumpstart my collegiate athletic career while getting my education. Since graduating from DC3, I have obtained 2 more degrees in Business Management and Human Resources. I am working towards my goal of becoming a CEO of a professional sports franchise."
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."
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."
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.”
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. I owe so much to the staff of DC3 for helping me transfer to Kansas State to complete my biochemistry degree with the help of the Bridges to the Future program. I am now 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!"
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."
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’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!”
I traveled to Dodge City for a visit all the way from Colorado and as soon as I met the staff, professors, my coaches and even the kitchen staff everyone treated me with so much respect and was incredibly welcoming, I knew in that moment that was what I wanted my college experience to be, and to this day I look back and I am so grateful for making the decision to be a Conq!"
