Colleen Garroty

BA Psychology - Child & Adolescent Development, Class of 2014

"I was in constant contact with my advisor, Maggie Crotti, who kept 'nudging' me and telling me that I can do this."

I started my education path by attending a local school back in 2006. I started as a full-time student, then bounced back and forth between part-time and full-time. I was ready to give up many times and thought that I would never see graduation until I was fifty! I was in constant contact with my advisor, Maggie Crotti, who kept “nudging” me and telling me that I can do this. My family was also a huge support system. Thankfully, here I am graduating in May with my bachelor's in psychology with a concentration in child and adolescent development, and minors in sociology and justice studies. I will be finishing my studies in June of 2014.
