Student Success Profile: Ludwing Gonzalez
Ever since he was a young boy, Ludwing (Lude-wig) Gonzalez dreamed of going to college to earn his business degree and become a successful entrepreneur. Thanks to his drive and determination, he is well on his way to making that dream a reality.
“I’ve always wanted to go to college. That has been my main goal. There were obstacles in the way; it’s challenging but if you want something, you have to go out there and get it. I want to show my younger brother that I completed my college degree, it’s possible and he can do it too.”
Ludwing is a first-generation college student who moved to the U.S. with his family at a young age, so finding the right fit when searching for a college was a challenge, and a bit overwhelming. He found everything he needed at UC Blue Ash. "I'm paying my own way through college, so I really liked the low tuition. I also like the campus and the people; it's close to home and I like to be close to my family."
A young entrepreneur, Ludwing started his own cleaning company and looks forward to expanding that business into other service areas as he continues his education at the University of Cincinnati Uptown campus, where he plans to complete his bachelor's degree from the Lindner College of Business.
While attending UC Blue Ash, Ludwing served as a Student Orientation Leader, Student Ambassador, and truly enjoyed living the complete college experience.
"The students, staff and faculty are great at UC Blue Ash. Being an ambassador allowed me to get involved in so many different activities and see how I can help make the college experience better for other students."
