Why Hudson Valley?

Three questions for alumna and former Tour Guide Anna G. Ogden '09

Anna Ogden '09Anna G. Ogden
Liberal Arts & Sciences - Humanities & Social Sciences program, Class of 2009

A 2007 graduate of Academy of Christian Leadership (Valatie, NY), Anna is one of many students who served as a tour guide, sharing her knowledge of the campus and experiences with accepted and prospective students. Here, she shares some thoughts about her Hudson Valley experience.

Why did you enroll at Hudson Valley? I came to Hudson Valley Community College because it is close to home and inexpensive.

What do you like best? I loved Hudson Valley Community College because there are a lot of services available for academic tutoring, small classroom sizes (the student-to-faculty ratio is 20:1) and I had an easy time transitioning between high school and college.

What is your goal? My first goal was to earn my associate’s degree in Liberal Arts & Sciences - Humanities & Social Sciences  – and I accomplished this at Hudson Valley and graduated in May 2009.  And now my goal is to enter the University at Albany and earn a bachelor’s in History.  I know my education at Hudson Valley has prepared me well to succeed. 

Our tour guides would love to show you around campus. Sign up for a tour today or RSVP so you and your parents can attend our Information Session on Saturday, March 13.
