Student Story: Matthew
Even though this is Matthew Rose’s third semester at Northwest Vista College, he’s still pondering his choices for a major. But one thing he knows for sure – he’s not leaving NVC without an associate degree.
“Getting an associate degree will help me to better myself and create more opportunities down the road,” added Matthew, 19.
Matthew graduated from Warren High School and chose Northwest Vista College because he figured it would be a lot easier to learn in a smaller class size. Northwest Vista College was also more affordable than university courses.
Matthew said some of his favorite subjects are math and accounting. When he’s not at NVC, Matthew works as a merchandise supervisor at SeaWorld San Antonio and as a cashier at a gas station.
Though he has a full load, Matthew tries to prioritize his time in order not to get burned out. But coming to NVC, Matthew adds, has been a good start for him.
“The teachers are really good at what they do, and I like the environment,” he said.
