"I am so thankful for getting a credit union student loan! Because of the loan I was able to go to Ohio University and graduate with a degree in Engineering Technology and Management and a minor in business. During my time I was able to meet so many amazing people and have so many unique experiences that without this loan I wouldn’t be able to experience. I was able to meet people who I would call friends for life, I got a chance to go to Chicago to go to one of the largest automation show’s in the world, and I even got to meet former president Bill Clinton!
After all those experiences I was able to graduate and start a career as a controls engineer in Cincinnati, OH and start my life on a good foot. Overall, I could easily say that thanks to my credit union, scholarships, and parental assistance I was able to go to college and live my life to the fullest!"
