Marty Jacobs | Construction Management AA transfer

I was the first person in my family to get a college degree. It meant a lot to me and my family. I just did what I enjoyed and took the classes that worked for me. It gave me the time to explore career options without having to change majors all the time. That’s how I decided that I want to work in the construction industry.

After SCC I transferred onto Western Illinois University to earn my BA in Construction Management. The transfer process was really easy. SCC made it so I could just go over there and start taking classes.

I had no idea that I’d be a contractor and have my own business like I do today. SCC played a part in helping me on my way.
