“I am thankful for the opportunity and experience I had at Ivy Tech. This was quite a journey for me.”
Cathalyn Ajayi chose to come to Ivy Tech Community College as an adult, after being out of school for many years. She originally started taking courses at Ivy Tech several years ago, but stopped out. In 2014, she made the decision to come back, and she is now on track to graduate December 2016.“I chose Ivy Tech because I had heard about it and how easy it would be to attend after so many years after high school; it would be an easier transition to get back into learning.”
She was attracted to not only the ability to transition into school as an adult at Ivy Tech, but also to the more than 1,000 online courses offered by the College.
During her time at Ivy Tech, Cathalyn took courses directly related to her job in administration and computer information systems. She noted that her studies at Ivy Tech helped her achieve a promotion in her career. As of December 2016, Cathalyn works at St. Vincent Health in the administrative field.
Cathalyn plans to transfer her credits and start her bachelor’s degree in February 2017 in business information systems.
