"Einstein said that all of science is nothing more than the refinement of everyday thinking. As an Onondaga Community College Math and Science major my thinking was refined in ways I never thought possible. I was transformed from a high school dropout into a college graduate with a deep regard of all things Math and Science. This admiration convinced me to further my education and now I am a geology major at a four year university. The Math and Science program at OCC has left me better prepared than the majority of other transfer students at my current college, putting me ahead of the game right from the start." ~Jason Newton (May 2007 graduate)
