My college is very focused on reaching our students' highest potentials. Also, the college contains an array of staff that are encouraging, motivated and up-lifting.

I've already gotten summer jobs in my degree field, so it's not hard to find jobs, just hard to get. The quality of jobs for my field (musical theatre) can be terrible just out of school. But sometimes you need that first poorly-paying resume builder to get to the next job.
