STUDENT SATISFACTION RATINGS

RECENT GRADUATE

I attended Suffolk County Community College. Because I had a high GPA and participated in outside activities, I received a scholarship to attended LIM College. This was an extension of the stay on Long Island scholarship program. The goal of the program is to have students stay in New York for their continued schooling. I was searching for fashion business schools and this was one of the few choices.
