Featured Adult Learner: Caitlin Quarton

Caitlin QuartonCaitlin Quarton is a junior transfer finishing her first semester at NIU. She’s pursuing a Bachelors in Psychology after finishing her Associates at Sauk Valley Community College (SVCC).

She started at SVCC as a Chemistry major, but she switched out of that major and was undecided until she had finished all of the general education credits necessary for her degree.

She took a gap year while she was trying to figure out what to major in, but then after working at a summer camp, Caitlin decided that she wanted to be a high school counselor.

Her plans for the future include getting married next summer and pursuing her Masters in Counseling.

Her advice for incoming students is “Keep in contact with your academic advisor and don’t be afraid to ask any questions you need.”
