"I chose Medix [College] because when I was looking for a school, I wanted someone who not only made promises, but actions. Who could make me feel like it wasn't too late for a fresh start, and who wouldn't make me feel alone.
When I heard of Medix College and the influences they had on their graduates, I knew then that my journey had begun. What I love about the campus is the people. Diversity brought us all together and united us together as one.
What I like at this school are the front line people. They're so accommodating and make life so easy for us. All other concerns are taken care of [by them]. Which is all I want.
Medix, for me, is the start of a new me. It's the hope to hold on, and the partner that will soar with me into the world of healthcare."
