Because we are going through the same process and taking similar teachers; I know and can identify with the experences feeling by my student and other various learners. 10 years ago I was a student whom went to classes here. This building at Citrus is new it was not here when I attended. Which is nice I am happy to say. Returning to my alma mater has been pleasing as an experience for me.
  • B. As a CF alumnus, I take special pleasure in teaching here. In a subtle way, I connect with my students. Perhaps this connection exists because I understand what my students are undertaking; I know this campus, I understand the college process, and incidentally, I have had many of the same teachers. Some things haven’t changed even after ten years. Some things have, however.
