Tony CristoforoTony Cristoforo of Mt. Pleasant, IA, is a freshman majoring in Business Education. He began his college career at a private four-year college but decided to transfer so that he could play football.

“When I decided that the four-year college wasn’t right for me, I had planned to transfer to the community college closest to my home,” says Tony. “A friend of mine was already enrolled at Ellsworth and another friend had just decided to attend here, so they convinced me to join them in Iowa Falls … and I’m glad they did!”

Tony is a safety for the ECC Panther football team, as well as being a Student Ambassador for the Admissions Office. He also plans to be involved in Student Senate.

“This is a great place for students who want a smaller college setting, or who want to ease into a college environment. I was really surprised at how friendly everyone is here, and that everyone knows your name and really cares about you. You’re not a number here, and I appreciate that.”

After he completes his Associate degree, Tony plans to transfer to complete a Bachelor’s degree in Business Education.
