Bergen Community College alumnus Ryo Murao, ’22, graduated with an associate of science degree in biology this past May. Murao served as co-president of the Judith K. Winn School of Honors and a director of communications in Phi Theta Kappa honor society. “Being a part of both honors organizations broadened my horizon and helped me become an effective leader,” said Murao. “I was able to strengthen my interests in STEM and the arts by taking advantage of the workshops and creating networks between faculty and other students.” Murao’s career goal is to be a primary care physician. “Bergen had the resources for me to prepare to transfer to a four-year college,” said Murao.
Based in Paramus, Bergen Community College (www.bergen.edu), a public two-year coeducational college, enrolls more than 13,000 students at locations in Paramus, the Philip Ciarco Jr. Learning Center in Hackensack and Bergen Community College at the Meadowlands in Lyndhurst. The College offers associate degree, certificate and continuing education programs in a variety of fields. More students graduate from Bergen than any other community college in the state.
