  • I love what I do. The work and styles are always changing. I’m excited to do something that changes the way people look and feel.

  • Sometimes college can be a place where you can get easily lost in the crowd. As a SGA and PTK officer, I want to impact the student population by making them feel part of something great.

  • I chose ACC because it is close to home and has an amazing Drama program.

  • It is a good transition between high school and college. ACC is affordable and close to home. While ACC was not my first choice I have come to realize the opportunities I will have by attending a college close to home and am excited to explore and take full advantage of all provided.

    Sarah Bowman General Studies Student, Alvin Community College
  • I decided to study electrical/electronics technology because I have always been curious about how electronic devices worked, not just on the outside but also on the inside. What I love most about being in the electrical/electronics program is all the hands-on projects. I have always been a visual learner and a “try it out” type of person. The program not only tests you on your academic knowledge, but it tests you more on your hands-on capabilities. After graduating from Galveston College, I plan to pursue a bachelor’s degree in computer engineering technology. I don’t know exactly what type of career I will have when I am done with school, but as long as I am working with electronics I will be a happy girl.

  • I’ve gotten to meet a lot of people, get insight and see new perspectives. I feel like if I didn’t know these people, I’d be struggling. They really help you stay level-headed, and they truly do care. It’s really important to me to have people who really care about me in my corner.
