  • If you think you can't do it, come over here to Weekend college, we'll turn that can't into can. Most definitely, I do recommend that this weekend program will be good for any future students. They're actually going to get their bills paid and still get school work done. It's a big change.

  • 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.

  • Because of Alvin Community College, I have been able to find a clear route to a successful future. The entire history department offered advice and suggestions on what would be best for my career. I also learned how to work hard and accomplish goals in a consistent and timely manner. These skills have translated into my academic career as well as my social life.

  • I had a great experience with ACC instructors while taking dual credit courses in high school. The Office of Disabilities was extremely helpful with my accommodations. Because ODS, instructors and I all work so well together, ACC has been a great experience.

  • 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.

  • 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.
