When the time came to pick a college major, Mackenzie Congdon decided Alfred State’s liberal arts and sciences: humanities program was the perfect fit.

Mackenzie, after all, loved writing and excelled in her high school English classes. She was also unsure of her exact career path.

After taking a variety of courses in her program, however, Mackenzie ultimately discovered she wanted to become an English teacher.

“I wasn’t sure at first what I wanted to do, but then I started diving into the program and it helped me to pinpoint what I wanted to do.”

While helping her find the right career path, the program also improved Mackenzie’s writing and reading comprehension skills, which are beneficial for any career. As a result, she became more confident in her abilities as a writer and was published twice in Ergo, Alfred State’s literary and artistic magazine.

In addition to her program, Mackenzie also loves the environment that Alfred State offers.

“I like how it’s so diverse, and at the same time, it’s like a small community. You know all your professors and most of your classmates. I think that’s pretty cool.”

Thanks to Alfred State, Mackenzie is authoring a bright future for herself and ready for whatever the next chapter of her life holds.
