Nunzia Crispino


International student Nunzia Crispino researched a lot of American colleges before she decided on Lorain County Community College.

“I looked at a lot of community colleges, I couldn’t find a college that I truly liked that offered the same rates as LCCC,” said Crispino, whose Italian family lives in Germany.

“Additionally, LCCC's UP Partnership program is a great opportunity for every student, and especially for an international student like me, it helps to make studying abroad somewhat more affordable.”

Crispino will earn an Associate of Business Management degree on May 17. She will continue her education through LCCC’s University Partnership with Kent State University to study business.

Through her many campus jobs, Crispino is a familiar face to many LCCC students and employees. She serves up coffee and other specialty drinks at Starbucks in College Center, staffs the Student Life welcome desk and works catering events for LCCC Dining Services.

Crispino used the knowledge she gained her LCCC courses to successfully complete an internship with the mortgage office of Quicken Loans in the summer of 2013. In that post, she helped coordinate fundraisers and community service events for the office.

“All of the classes I took at LCCC prepared me to successfully execute the daily tasks that I was given through the length of my internship. This internship truly helped me to gain real life experience and apply the knowledge I’ve obtained at LCCC in an amazing work environment in which I was able to give back to the community by supporting the company in many fundraisers and community service events,” she explained.

Crispino looks forward to continuing her education through LCCC’s University Partnership and finding a rewarding career.

“I hope to find employment with a company that values its employees, that helps me to strengthen my leadership abilities and allows me to use my foreign language skills,” she said.
