"DCCCD has allowed me to obtain a high-quality higher education at a low cost. I am graduating from Brookhaven with zero debt. There are tons of scholarships out there that you can apply for, especially through the DCCCD Foundation. There's so much scholarship money out there that goes unclaimed each year. So, try to take advantage of lots of small scholarships with little competition, and the money will add up."

"One of my best college experiences was attending the National Legislative Summit in Washington, D.C, where I spoke with congressmen and learned a lot about higher education policy."

"Join a club! Don't just go to class, do work and go home. Having something to do on campus will make your college experience far more fun!"

Watch Brookhaven's virtual graduation at 11 a.m. Saturday, June 13 on the DCCCD YouTube channel or the DCCCD Facebook page
