The Chicagoland Regional College Program afforded me the opportunity to achieve the American Dream. I was able to obtain both my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees practically debt free, all while working diligently and building character. With my education and determination, I am fortunate enough to have been working in my field for a few years now and making enough to sustain myself, and even buy a home before the age of 30. I would not be where I am today had it not been for the CRCP. This program offers hope and opportunity for many students. It’s good for Illinois!
