  • I started the process, going back to school when I was 41. I will get my first college degree at 45 as a single mom. If I can do it anybody can do it. Just start taking one class at a time, get your feet wet and once you do the one class you'll be hooked and you'll want more.

  • My hope is that I leave a legacy at San Jac long after I am gone. I want students to feel like they belong at San Jac and that choosing community college was a great choice. Our time at San Jac is short, so I want everyone to enjoy the moment before going into the workforce or transferring to a university.

  • I noticed how wonderful my sister’s experience was at ACC and I became intrigued. She spoke of her professors and classmate as though they were family. In all aspects she knew she belonged and was supported. I too desired that feeling. I came to ACC with two degrees but I have never felt more connected or have taken as much ownership as I have now. I love ACC.

  • My experiences at Lee College have been some of the most life-changing experiences to this point. The whole institution here is about helping students get an education so that they can graduate and become part of society that's making the world a better place.

  • Coming down here changed that. When I first started down here, I didn't know anything about valves, pumps, anything like that, but they're incredibly thorough. They assume you know nothing, and they just build up from that. As a whole, I'd say it's overwhelmingly positive. I really can't think of anything negative to say about it. It's not that hard. If I can do it, you can do it.

  • Alvin Community College offers a vast amount of academic opportunities and provides it at an affordable cost. There is something for every student outside of academics such as theater, Christian organizations, Student Government, Hispanic College Alliance, etc. ACC also provides assistance and information to help when students are in need for instance; scholarships, student worker jobs, catastrophic assistance and even a food pantry. In addition, ACC is involved in the community and that is important to me. #FINSUP!
