IRSC Grad Edgar Carrasco Will Continue Success at UCF

Edgar Carrasco of Fort Pierce graduated with his Associate in Arts degree from Indian River State College in May 2017 knowing that he was well prepared for the next step in his education as a University of Central Florida Knight when he starts as a Psychology Major this Spring.

Hearing the needs of the children at a local middle school he volunteered at and seeing challenges they faced at home along with the engaging classes with his IRSC Psychology instructor helped inspire his desire to become a Pediatric Psychologist.

“One of the best things about IRSC was the great teacher-to-student communication.” Edgar shares continuing, “they are very caring towards you meeting your goal.”

As a high school student at Fort Pierce Central, Edgar’s experience was also enhanced by Dual Enrollment at IRSC. “Teachers helped structure my course and time management. I know I’ll continue to succeed at university because of their hands-on help.”

Edgar knows that even though he is transferring to UCF, that he still has friends and family from IRSC that support him and have already contributed to his future achievement. “IRSC teachers remember you; you matter to them, you aren’t just a number. The longer you stay in this environment the better your chances for success become.”
