  • BC has helped me not only academically but also personally. Helping me grow from a very shy person to somebody who works in the writing center and helps everybody that they can.

  • It was important for me to come back to COM after 25 years for a few different reasons. One, I wanted to continue to learn new aspects of the trade. After so long, the industry has grown exponentially. Two, I wanted to have that piece of paper that make me legitimate. And lastly, I went back to school to set an example to my 15 and 13-year-old. I want them to know that you’re never too old to learn.

  • 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.

  • My internship through the Galveston College Welding Technology program was great. I experienced everything from the construction of stainless steel hand rails and stairwells to building the bases of Southwest Airlines' light posts and creating a bumper for a Galveston ferry boat. Best of all, I was offered a job on graduation from the program.

  • 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.
