Students crossed the Solano Community College campus Monday, some heading to classes for the first time and others returning for another year of education.
Kaitlin Fickas, 19, of Vallejo, is entering her second year at the college where she is studying nursing, taking inspiration from her mother who is a nurse. Fickas just got finished with a summer session and was not nervous about the coming year.
“The money is good in the Bay Area for nurses,” she said. “And I am good at science.”Fickas said she is looking forward to getting her associate degree and starting work.This year the school welcomed 9,600 students.
