Hello! I’m Connor Charles and I am a student in the Honors Program at Jamestown Community College. I graduated from Olean High School in 2012, and I live with my parents and my younger brother. At JCC I am currently majoring in individual studies and I then plan transfer to St. Bonaventure to major in education. In the future I hope to be a kindergarten teacher, but honestly I would be happy teaching anything.
I chose JCC for several reasons, the most important being:
- It’s close by to my parents
- I had great experiences with the professors
- It’s a small school with great opportunities
- I received the USA Scholarship
JCC was the first college that I applied to and the first acceptance letter I got. When it came in the mail I was SO excited (I never get any mail!)
The weeks leading up to my first day of college I was incredibly scared. I wasn’t sure what to expect being a full-time college student. I was worried that I wouldn’t fit in, but it is the total opposite. To help fit in on campus, I decided to get involved. I’m a tutor at the Learning Center, secretary on Student Senate, and a member of the Honors Program.
I have enjoyed every minute of my first semester here at JCC and can’t wait to see what the spring holds!
