Cara Schatz is finishing her first semester at MassBay in the fall of 2011. In her short time at the College, Cara has definitely learned a lot and has grown a lot.


“I came here mostly because of the money – it costs less, and because my GPA in high school wasn’t as high as it could’ve been,” Cara explains. “I have learned more this semester than in four years of high school.”


Cara says she liked math and science in high school, but she really didn’t know what she wanted to do until she got to MassBay. She is pursuing her Associate Degree in Biotechnology and will “definitely” stay in this field.


When asked whether anything surprised her about MassBay when she arrived on campus, Cara said, “I didn’t realize it was as good as it is. When I first came here I didn’t realize how much it offers. Professors are really smart, and they’re good at teaching. I like it a lot.”


Cara expects to graduate from MassBay and move on to get a bachelor’s degree. After that, the sky’s the limit!
