Colby Costa, 2018 Graduate

Major: Law & Justice, Minors: Psychology & Sociology 

What are your plans for after graduation?

I have dreamed of going into law enforcement since I was 3 years old. I want to take my education that I attained and use it to my advantage to fulfill my lifelong goal. I have been going through the process of becoming an officer of the law since April 21st. My hope is that I will be an officer here very shortly so that I can be protecting and serving my community.

What did you enjoy most about Central?

I enjoyed how everybody accepts each other here at this university. Everyone might be studying different subjects and interests but at the end of the day everyone is supportive of each other and there are a plethora of resources and outlets at one’s disposal here at Central.

Do you have any words of advice for other TRIO students?

College is an exciting opportunity to further your educational career to make a name for yourself in our ever-competitive society. There will be times where you will feel stuck or hopeless and question why you are in college. All I can say is that you tackle it one day at a time and fight through it. There are always those who will support you such as the great staff and students in TRIO. Getting a college degree will all be worth it in the end as you walk across the stage on graduation day. That was easily the best and most rewarding moment and day of my life!

Take the Next Step to Becoming a Wildcat.
