Recent PSC Graduate - Radiance Walker
Radiance Walker started at Prairie State College (PSC) in fall 2008. She only stayed a semester before taking some time off and then transferring to a different college. She quickly regretted her decision to leave PSC and decided to come back; a decision that has worked out well for her.
When Walker returned to PSC, she got involved in school activities. During her first year, she was a copy editor for the Student Review, the college newspaper. Next, she served as vice president of the Student Government Association. She also was involved with the Campus Activities Programming Board. Her work with student organizations helped her understand that planning activities and seeing the results gave her an immense sense of pride.
"PSC provided me opportunities to meet people and become involved. Joining Student Government gave me the opportunity to build my leadership skills. When I was younger I was very shy, doing extracurricular activities helped me talk to new people and build my confidence," she said.After graduating from PSC in May 2012, she plans to travel in Europe. When she returns she hopes to attend the University of Florida to study international business with a minor in marketing. Eventually, she would like to own her own business.
