  • I love the care that goes into community colleges and that community is usually their focus. The first time I set foot on Alvin Community College campus, I felt at home and welcomed instead of just another student.

  • COM has the best PTEC program around. We have some of the best instructors. They're very helpful and supportive. The best part is they come from the industry. Without COM, I wouldn't be where I'm at today.

  • At the College of Mainland, I received tons of support, education, and experience through local hospitals and specialized clinics. Their SIM lab is incredible because it is the closest reality that you're going to get and I feel very prepared in the future of any critical care situation.
