International Student Finds Perfect Fit at NC State College

Isabella Zhong stands at a podium for National Society of Leadership and Success Induction at North Central State College.

Isabella Zhong, a graphic design student, says she is lucky to have a found a college that is a perfect fit for her to

 get her degree.

As an international student, Zhong who is from China chose North Central State College to continue her education because of the quality education she knew she would be able to receive at the Mansfield campus.

“I visited North Central State College and knew this was the right place for me.   I instantly found this to be a friendly environment.  I like the smaller college feel, which has smaller classrooms.  The professors and instructors can work better with students one-on-one,” Zhong explains.

As a graphic design student, she was impressed by the electronics and equipment available for students to use.  The Graphic Design Major of Visual Communications Media and Technology gives students experience utilizing a variety of software applications, design techniques, as well as learning about the creative process.

Zhong is also the vice president of the National Society of Leadership and Success chapter at North Central State College and The Ohio State University at Mansfield.  The NSLS is the largest leadership honor society in the nations, a lifetime membership is recognized nationally, according to the NSLS website. 

The society requires students to be involved in community service hours while participating in the program.  One of her favorite service projects was the Big Brothers, Big Sisters Bowl-a-Thon. The event is the largest annual fundraiser for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Ohio. “I think it’s one of my favorites because it was the first times I had a chance to work with others as a group and do something to make a difference.  It’s a project that will forever remain deep in my heart.”

Zhong plans to graduate with her associate degree in VCMT Graphic Design in May.  She will then be able to transfer to Kent State University to pursue her bachelor’s degree.
