Student Success Profile: Heidi McPeek
Freshman student Heidi McPeek, of Newport, hit the ground running during her first semester at Washington State Community College (WSCC).
The 19-year-old is taking six classes this fall under the Executive Administrative Assistant program, and says she was able to schedule all the courses around her personal life. "I enrolled and registered early so I was able to get into all the classes I needed for this semester," explains McPeek.
She adds that the workload of six classes may sound tough, but is completely manageable. "I mean, you have to study and do the homework to stay caught up, but I don't find it overwhelming at all."
The newly revamped and renamed Center for Student Success helped Heidi out with an equipment loan this fall. "I took advantage of borrowing one of the calculators for the semester," notes McPeek. "It saved me a bunch of money since I only needed it for this one particular math class."
Heidi McPeek plans to graduate with her associate of applied business degree in 2014, with plans to seek a career in office administrative services.
