Ivan Ruiz

Mr. Ruiz came to the U.S. from Colombia at age 17. He knew he needed a degree so he came to MCC part-time and eventually earned his degree. He is now the owner and wine director of The Wine List of Summit.“The foundation I got at Middlesex was amazing,” he said. “The professors were knowledgeable and they taught professionalism and follow-through. If it wasn’t for the foundation I got at Middlesex, I wouldn’t be here today.”

Fizza Sulaiman

After a rocky start at MCC, Fizza Sulaiman left in 2003. She came back determined to succeed. She felt the small class size and personal attention she received from her professors were the keys to her success. “For me it was the professors,” she said. “If they had to stay an extra two hours just to help me understand something, they were willing to do that.” She was awarded the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation Undergraduate Transfer Scholarship and plans to continue her studies at a prestigious 4-year school.

Joshua Cohen

Joshua Cohen has saved lives serving in the military and as a stem cell donor. He plans to continue saving lives after he gets his Nursing Degree from MCC in May of 2016. “We are very proud of all of our nursing students,” said Nancy Berger, the program director. “But Josh, who has given selflessly of himself to others – including those he does not know – is the epitome of what a nurse should be, someone who cares about others and wants to better their lives. He is a true humanitarian.”
