Students enroll in City College for various reasons. For many it is an opportunity to earn an associate’s degree or certificate, or transfer to a university to earn a four-year degree.
Amateur boxer and communications major Julius Douglas says that his decision to enroll in City College was motivated by his aspiration to better his life and to compete in the Olympic Games as a member of the United States Men’s Boxing Team.
“I’m aiming for the Olympics,” said Douglas. “Right now I’m training every day to get better so that when I’m ready to go professional I’ll give it a shot.”
