J.D. Candidate 2017, University of Denver Sturm College of Law


FRCC Associate Degree in Political Science

Aurora Randolph didn’t yet have her driver’s license when she first started at FRCC. But she certainly had drive. Home-schooled for most her life, Aurora finished high school at just 16 and started here immediately after. Her goal? Earn an Associate Degree, then transfer to a four-year university. And she promptly did just that – serving as an officer in the FRCC chapter of Phi Theta Kappa; participating in Students Allied for Education; and being named one of only 50 Undergraduate Transfer Scholars nationwide by the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation along the way.

The latter honor was accompanied by a generous scholarship that funded Aurora’s next two years at the University of Colorado, where she earned her Bachelor Degree in Political Science. Today, she’s a student at the University of Denver Sturm College of Law and anticipates her J.D. in 2017.

As for Aurora’s future? All evidence points to success.

“Affordability isn’t the only reason to choose Front Range. The instructors are approachable and accessible. The learning environment is very collaborative. And because students have a vast range of experiences, the class discussions are more dynamic and interesting. Bottom line, it’s just a great place to start. FRCC values and nurtures students. Everyone knows your name here.”
