  • ACC has a really nice environment and a great healthcare program. I decided to transfer from another community college and never regretted my decision. ACC provides students with more care, more opportunities and a friendlier atmosphere to be successful.

  • ACC has always been like a home to me. The staff is so helpful and friendly. The community connection is what brought me to make a final decision to attend ACC.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
