Lisa's Thoughts on Howard College

Why Howard College?

I personally selected Howard because I was going back to school after so many years and felt it would be more accommodating to my needs than ASU.  After coming out here and visiting with faculty, staff, and students I was more than convinced Howard was the place for me.

Why History / Psychology?

I have always had a passion for History and I would ultimately love to receive my PhD in Ancient Middle Eastern History.  The psychology comes into play with my goals of opening my non-profit organization.

Career Goals
My future goals and plans are to receive my LCDC/LPC, then continue on to earn my MA and PhD in History.  I want my LCDC/LPC to help counsel in my non-profit organization.  It will be to help children of incarcerated parents and then help the offender reintegrate back into society.  With the master’s and PhD I want to teach History.

Favorite Professor
All of my instructors have played a major role in my time here at Howard.  I would have say Mr. Larry Logsdon and Mr. Gary Smith.  They both have pulled out strengths and dreams I did not even know I had.

My Awards / Honors

  • Dean's List

My Clubs / Organizations

  • Student Government Association – Parliamentarian
  • FBLA-PBL President
  • TJCSGA Region 1 Bulletin

Best Studying Advice
My advice on studying is set aside a time to study each day and get in a routine and STAY WITH IT!

Most Valuable Learning Experience
My most valuable learning experience at Howard has been that I have come to realize my potential.  I have only come to realize this only through the dedication and continuing support of Howard faculty and staff.

Relax and Have Fun
I love to walk down around the grounds of the lily pond.  This is where I go to relax, read, pray, or do whatever.

What I like most about Howard College
The thing I love the most about Howard is the dedication of the entire Howard faculty and staff.

What I tell future Howard College students
I would tell future or prospective students that all you need to succeed is right here at Howard, so come tap into your future.
