Senior Story: Caley is Graduating from ACC!

Caley wears a yellow sweatshirt and smiles.

Meet Caley, a senior at ACC getting ready to graduate with her Comprehensive Higher Education Certificate to be a Care Attendant! While attending Elevate, Caley has grown in her independence skills. Caley says a major reason she has become more independent is, "Your parents are not going to be there for you all the time. You're going to be on your own sometime, and you're going to be like, 'I got this. What do I need to do?'" As she looks ahead to graduation, she is very excited to reach this milestone and begin planning life after college. Check out her senior video to find out more about her college experience! 

Caley's Experience

  • School: ACC
  • Major: Care Attendant
  • Favorite Part of College: Being with my friends and seeing the teachers and all the staff here makes me happy to see them here when I come in.
  • Plans After Graduation: I want to work at Children's Hospital. I want to be able to help the kids feel better so they won't be in the hospital any longer.

Caley's Words of Wisdom

  • What has the opportunity to go to college meant for you?: Stepping out of your box and getting independence. You are more independent in your life when you go to college.
  • What did you learn about yourself during college?: I learned about how to be more independent and how to figure things out myself. If I can't figure it out myself, I know who to go to if I need to ask for help.
  • What advice do you have for incoming freshmen?: It's kind of scary at first, but when you get used to it, it's really fun! Make it go slow, because this time will go by fast, and you'll be done with college!
