The absolute best reward for all of us at Remington College is hearing about how well our students are doing once they graduate. Here’s a great update from Chris Babcock, a 2013 Computer-Aided Design and Drafting (CADD) graduate from our Mobile Campus.

Chris’s highlights:

  • Graduation Date:  August 17, 2013
  • Final CGPA:  4.00
  • Honors:   Albertus Haasdijk Outstanding Student Award
  • Current Job:  Civil Drafter
  • Current Employer:   Sawgrass Consulting, LLC, Theodore, AL

Overcoming challenges and persevering to achieve success:
Chris had this to say: “Before attending Remington, my life was spiraling out of control. My wife and I had just separated, and I lost my job and my house. I decided then that it was time for me to do something different with my life. I enrolled into Remington not really knowing how it would turn out.”

So Chris took a chance, and it paid off. He said, “I saw that I was succeeding. It brought meaning back to my life and ultimately led to my wife and I getting back together.”(1)

Choosing Remington College:
Chris said, “I chose Remington because of the small class sizes, and the faculty. The kindness and professionalism from the staff made a great impression on me.” As he considered his options, he said: “The small class sizes sealed the deal.”

What happened as Chris prepared to graduate from Remington College:
“One month before graduating, I received a job offer as a civil drafter through Sawgrass Consulting, LLC,” Chris said. He added, “I have a really good future with the young company I’m now working for, and I owe it all to the staff at Remington and the skills I learned while attending there.”(1,2)

Chris’s “take-away” lesson from his Remington College experience:
He told us this: “I’ve learned that no matter how bad things get, with the right people to help you and the right attitude, you can accomplish your educational and career goals.”(1,2)

Way to go, Chris! We’re so happy for your professional and personal success, and all of us at Remington College feel that your drive to improve and achieve will continue to pay dividends to you well into the future. Keep up the great work!
