Alumni Success Story -- Sandra Orimilikwe
Although she was born in Washington, D.C., Sandra Orimilikwe
left for Nigeria when she was seven years old. So, in 1993, when she returned
to the United States and began taking classes at Mercer, she was new to
the American college system. With some prior credits from the University
of Nigeria Teaching Hospital, she wasted no time jumping into coursework
at MCCC, earning her associate degree in Medical Laboratory Technology
in 1995. More here.
