Path Speaker Series: Making it Against the Odds

The UC Blue Ash College Path Speaker Series: Making it Against the Odds, provides information to students on how they can create a path to achieving academic and career success, no matter what challenges they might face, by sharing experiences, insight, and strategies from those who have overcome the odds to reach their goals.

Over the course of the Spring semester, three different speakers provided their own stories and offered tips for success to students who might be struggling to beat the odds.
