Teresa PetrazzuoloBergen Community College alumna, Teresa Petrazzuolo, ’22, graduated with an associate of arts degree in political science this past May. She served as co-president of the Judith K. Winn School of Honors Board and director of finance for Phi Theta Kappa. “I think that the advisors in Phi Theta Kappa and Honors helped make me successful because they notified and aided students with applications, scholarships, service events, tutoring, and much more,” said Petrazzulo. “Having such support and unity really helped me succeed at Bergen.” When asked why she chose Bergen, she felt that the lasting connections and success that her brothers experienced at Bergen helped make that decision. “I saw my two older brothers go through Bergen and attend prestigious universities,” said Petrazzuolo. “They made lasting connections within the Honors and PTK associations at Bergen.” She enjoys playing softball and strives for success. Petrazzuolo aspires to be an immigration attorney.
