Hillyer College is home! Here, I found my voice. I embraced the authentic me, my worldly views and desire to contribute to my wonderful continent of Africa. It is with the empowering support and guidance from my Hillyer professors that I today continue to think outside of the box, take calculated risks and learn from both my successes and failures.

Choosing to attend Hillyer College was one of the best decisions I made. Hillyer helps students during the difficult transition from high school to college. It is great at fostering a sense of community and belonging for first-year students. To this day, I remain in communication with my classmates from Hillyer, and we have yet to stop our tradition of celebrating each other’s accomplishments.
