A CLC College Readiness Coordinator will be available to answer questions.

CLC Women in STEM

“You can do anything you want. If someone says you’re too girly to build engines, and you can’t be a mechanic or you can’t be an engineer, don’t let anyone stop you. You can still be a woman and you can still manage to solve problems and build things, whatever your mind wants you to do. You just have to believe in yourself.”
— Dawn Burzawa, CLC Graduate Electrical Engineering
