  • The Early college high school gives you an opportunity to get a high school diploma and two years worth of college here at Lee College. The most significant advantage I think is that it exposes you to so many classes that you wouldn't have at a high school. It exposes you to fields of study, majors that you wouldn't have at high school.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • I hope to use that degree in the field of process technology as a refinery or a chemical plant operator. Challenging leads to rewarding and there are great rewards to be made in this industry. I'm totally excited about my future. I'm sure there will be hurdles I'll have to clear but I think I can do it and with Exxon's help with the scholarship and that helps me greatly financially to afford to 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.

  • 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.
