Just a month after arriving in the United States from Jamaica, Lachanee Scott began her studies at Berkeley College. “It was a bit of a culture shock coming to the United States,” she remembered. “I looked into several schools, but I knew I didn’t want to feel just like a number. I saw the way the Berkeley professors and staff interacted with the students and the feel stood out to me.” After enrolling, she immediately felt comfortable, “Everyone at Berkeley made it easier for me to transition to life here and begin preparing for a career.”
