LaGuardia students come from more than 150 different countries, speaking over 125 native languages, yet their determination to create a stronger future for themselves and their families through higher education is the dream they all share.
Long before their college journey even begins however, our students face significant obstacles—financial, academic, personal—that have derailed their goal of earning a degree and pursuing their dreams.
But LaGuardia Community College is a place where students have the opportunity to not just succeed, but to thrive. Talented faculty and supportive staff give them the knowledge, resources and encouragement needed to push past obstacles, to dare to do more, and write their own futures.To hear what our students say about their path to a degree at LaGuardia, watch:Jermaine Brewer, Accounting major
