Column: Ivy Tech opens mind to global thinking

The reasons are endless why someone might want to change his life.

Regardless, attending college is not something to be taken lightly. There is cost, accessibility and time to consider.

I found myself in that quandary three years ago. Luckily for me, Ivy Tech Community College Columbus/Franklin was the answer to my questions. I was able to continue my education to not only better myself but to give back to society as well.

Being a writer and an English major, my writing courses were my favorite ones. While not easy, they helped me grow as a writer.

But I also grew from many other courses. My courses in philosophy and sociology opened my mind to new ways of thinking. I was able to learn about global thinking and the importance of valuing others’ opinions.

Courses in the humanities and sciences open new doors of both opportunity and thought. No longer is a community college just for a technical degree. Rather, there are opportunities to work in many fields of interest, such as teaching, medicine and law, just to name a few.
