Cesar always excelled in math and thought he wanted to be an actuary. But after a life-changing experience volunteering at a local clinic in his home country of Jamaica, he quickly realized that he enjoyed bringing comfort to others. He chose RVCC as the place to kick off his medical education.

RVCC Major: Pre-Health

Internship: Overlook Medical Center Summer Internship

Why I Enrolled at RVCC: "It is among the best community colleges in New Jersey. I admire the quote “Start here and transfer anywhere,” because it is indeed true."

Favorite Thing about RVCC: "I like the size of the classes because it provides opportunities for asking questions. I also like the flexibility of the professors’ office hours and the Academic Tutoring Center, which is really helpful."
