After having a tough time in high school, Hannah Croce used Nashua Community College to start over. Learning from the past, she took the extra time to talk to her instructors when she needed help.

She was a member of Rotaract and Phi Theta Kappa, an honor society for two-year colleges. Hannah also served on the Board of Trustees for the Community College System of New Hampshire. “It’s amazing, they really cared about the student perspective," she said.

After graduating from NCC in 2018, she transferred to Northeastern University in Boston and finished her bachelor’s degree in 2021, along with two “co-ops” or 6-month internships. “The first was in investment operations at a hedge fund, Clough Capital Partners, here in Boston and the second was at a company called First Eagle Alternative Credit, also in Boston, where I was a deal team analyst. I am currently applying to full time jobs in New York City. My goal is to get an entry level position in Investment Banking at either a premiere boutique or bank. My long-term goals are to eventually start my own fund which promotes women in finance and is focused on the responsibility of giving back to various nonprofit organizations.”

Hannah said NCC is a place where students can turn their grades around to reach their dreams,

“There are doctors out there in the world who got their start at NCC. The faculty and staff really care about the students. They’re going to do anything they can to help them.”
