First-generation Glendale Community College student shares her transfer experience
As an only child and a first-generation college student, Lianyue (Leia) Zhang decided to pursue higher education as a path toward better career opportunities and a more prosperous future. Originally from China, Zhang decided to first attend Glendale Community College directly upon completing high school because of the affordable tuition and the ability to focus on her studies as a full-time student.
Signing up for MAPP MyPath2ASU further helped guide Zhang through the transfer process to Arizona State University, ensuring she took the right courses at the right time.
“It had a huge impact on me, where at first I felt lost being completely clear about what I needed to take and the path I needed to pursue," she said. "It doesn’t just give you each specific course you have to take in order to finish a degree, but also the order of courses to take on which to build a foundation on. Most importantly, you can see how the intersection of each major or minor or even certificate that is provided by each college will give you the benefit to accelerate your progress.”
