I wasn’t sure if engineering was for me and I figured Virginia Peninsula would be a good place to try it out.
Virginia Peninsula Community College Engineering student Daniel Montgomery has a succinct plan for his future that includes acceptance to Virginia Tech's College of Engineering. Virginia Peninsula will help Montgomery achieve that goal with transfer agreements that allow students to complete the equivalent of the first two years of a Bachelor's degree at Virginia Peninsula, earn an associate degree and transfer to a public institution in the Commonwealth like Virginia Tech. "I wasn't sure if engineering was for me and I figured Virginia Peninsula would be a good place to try it out." Montgomery said.
The York River Academy graduate appreciates Virginia Peninsula's affordable tuition and diverse student population. He has enjoyed great academic success at Virginia Peninsula and is proud of his induction into the Phi Sigma chapter of Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society. "I've had a lot of good teachers. There's more one-on-one attention at Virginia Peninsula," he said.
Montgomery expects to earn an Associate of Science in Engineering from Virginia Peninsula in May 2018. After completing a Bachelor's degree, Montgomery plans to pursue graduate studies in Applied Physics and aspires to Design Scientific instrumentation.
