Why do so many students take a Winter Session Class?

Kevin Valencia, winter session studentAccording to Kevin Valencia, a Three Rivers student who graduated in December 2018 with a General Studies, A.S.:

“I earned the same amount of credits in less time. It helps you get to your goal faster. There are also so many online courses that you can take them at home on your work schedule.

Even though it is a lot to learn in a short time, the professors really help you stay on track and work with you while holding you to the same standard.”

Kevin is now attending Eastern Connecticut State University for a bachelor’s degree in Business General Studies with a focus on Business Administration.
