Kirkwood Student Celia Daniels

“I really didn’t like the idea of going into debt and owing somebody a huge amount of money to be able to go to college. I just didn’t buy into that as a good idea for my future, so I’m paying for college out of my own pocket. Kirkwood was the only option I looked at that gave me that freedom to explore what I really wanted to do without going into miles of debt.”
