The IB program allowed me to receive 18 credit hours so I came into college half way through freshman year. This is allowing me to double major, skip a lot of my general education classes that everyone dreads, and register for classes as a sophomore this spring. Many classes require you have at least a certain class level (sophomore, junior, or senior) to register for them - so IB enabled me to have a bit of an edge.
IB was the best possible thing I could have ever done with my time at CCES. Not only did I learn how to write and connect with people internationally, but I also learned time management skillsó something many of my peers struggle with. I was talking with some friends in class the other day about how I am in bed every night by 10pm. A student interjected and said, "How can you do that?!" To which I replied, "I prioritize."
Many of my peers have never had to buckle down and study. Many more have never been assigned a paper and expected to have it done within three days. IB and CCES prepared me so well for my both my education and professional career. Everyday I'm so thankful to be a part of this world wide family.
