The Office of Disability Services offered the accommodations I needed to thrive academically, making STCC the perfect fit for me.

Rashida Krigger transferred into STCC’s Engineering and Science Transfer program after spending a year studying chemical engineering at a four-year college. “I was home-schooled by my mom and developed a real passion for chemistry. My mom graduated from the nursing program at STCC, so I was familiar with the campus. The Office of Disability Services offered the accommodations I needed to thrive academically, making STCC the perfect fit for me. The engineering program is very challenging, but the professors take great care of their students and are invested in our success. I’m proud to be graduating with honors and have been accepted into the chemical engineering program at UMASS/Amherst. My career interests include alternative energy and the chemistry behind the cosmetics industry. I’m excited about my future.”
