"There were times in my life where I thought I wouldn't go to college. However, once I began my journey at Brockport and attended Dr. Cochran's courses, I not only began to truly enjoy school, but it was in her courses that I decided I would continue on to earn my master's degree."Giovanna LaPorta '13
