“I thoroughly enjoyed my two years at FCC. During that time, I made lifelong friends and had experiences I will never forget. FCC gave me the time to grow as a basketball player and more importantly as a young man. The school and the coaching staff provided me the opportunity to grow and learn on my own (with a few mistakes) but also provided me all the support I needed to succeed. I could not have picked a better community college to prepare me for a four-year university academically or aesthetically. -Elyon Bush
