Tayla Schipilliti chose Nashua Community College as a starting point toward a Bachelor’s degree. She earned her Associate Degree in Liberal Arts from NCC in 2017, before transferring to Bryant University and launching her career in Digital Marketing.

“NCC was a great fit for me because of the convenient location and ability to create a flexible schedule,” said Tayla, a Merrimack High School graduate. “I was initially interested in NCC because it provided an opportunity to earn credits at a lower tuition that could be transferred through the dual admission program.”

After graduating high school, Tayla was unsure of what direction to go for her future career and wanted to try a variety of classes to explore her interests.

“The Liberal Arts program at NCC allowed me to do this and it is how I discovered that I really enjoy marketing!”

While at NCC, she said the small class sizes and diverse student population benefited her overall experience. “I think that taking classes with students of varying education levels and work experience enhanced the program by allowing different perspectives, therefore creating a richer learning environment.”

Transfer Experience: NCC to Bryant University

“After graduating from NCC, I transferred to Bryant University where I pursued my Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with a concentration in marketing and a minor in communication. During my time at Bryant University I became involved in campus life by joining the Big Brothers Big Sisters club, Bryant Marketing Association club, Digital Marketing Team, and was a member of the Mu Kappa Tau Marketing Honor Society.”

Career Pathway: Digital Marketing

Following her graduation from Bryant University, Tayla started her career in Digital Marketing as a Digital Advertising Associate at Carnegie Dartlet. “In my time here, I have learned so much about digital marketing and moved on to become a Digital Advertising Specialist where I work to help clients develop and implement their overall digital marketing strategy.”

Advice for Future College Students

“If I could give any advice to prospective NCC students, it would be to dive in and take full advantage of the resources and network that NCC has to offer and to never pass up an opportunity to learn, grow, and get involved,” said Tayla, adding that everyone is on their own educational journey, and students don’t need to take a traditional path to succeed.

“I would have never known to look for the best marketing programs in the area or be able to afford my degree at Bryant University if I hadn’t started my journey at NCC.”
