Rhodes Scholar, Hazim Hardeman's take on community colleges

Latest News

May 15, 2018

Hazim Hardeman, a kid from North Philly, a Rhodes Scholar and a Community College of Philadelphia alumnus, had a message for the city as he spoke at the College’s 52nd Commencement at The Liacouras Center on May 5: "Many of you are the first in your family to attend college, others of you are the first to graduate. And there’s a particular lure about being a first, the stroke of the ego, the feeling that you’ve been able to accomplish something that others before you couldn’t," Hazim, the College's Commencement speaker, told the students, families and friends of the Class of 2018. "But we should never mistake our being first, for being the first that were worthy," he cautioned.

I first came to CCP looking to enhance my financial situation. I have a B.S. degree in Biology and a minor in Chemistry. I found it difficult to re-enter that industry so I came back, and just started a new career.

I think the College helped me realize that the idea of going to a four-year university is overrated. You can really come here and have teachers that have the same dedication and the same quality of education...

People of the College

I ended up here at CCP [Community College of Philadelphia] because I didn’t have a smooth transition into Temple—that’s where I wanted to go.
