“Ivy Tech has definitely taught me how to fight on, be brave, and to never give up on accomplishing the smallest challenges.”
After attempting college several times, Monica decided that Ivy Tech was the place where she wanted to achieve her degree. Studying Hospitality Administration, Monica pursued a degree with a concentration in Culinary Arts.
“I honestly picked Ivy Tech because it was local and affordable, and I was ready to make a change. I knew that it was the best option.” Once attending Ivy Tech, Monica felt that each of her professors encouraged her to learn and grow in her field. Her environment and the diversity among her fellow students and instructors also influenced her progress.
Monica graduated in May of 2016. “I came back to school to better myself and to gain in-depth knowledge of what it takes to be in the culinary industry.”
As of fall 2016, Monica is employed as the lab resource supervisor in the Hospitality department at Ivy Tech.
Despite her setbacks from previous college experiences, she is very proud of her success from her journey at Ivy Tech. She plans on returning to earn her bachelor’s degree in nutrition and becoming a culinary instructor in the future.
