  • 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.

  • I choose ACC because they have an outstanding Paralegal program.

  • I decided to study electrical/electronics technology because I have always been curious about how electronic devices worked, not just on the outside but also on the inside. What I love most about being in the electrical/electronics program is all the hands-on projects. I have always been a visual learner and a “try it out” type of person. The program not only tests you on your academic knowledge, but it tests you more on your hands-on capabilities. After graduating from Galveston College, I plan to pursue a bachelor’s degree in computer engineering technology. I don’t know exactly what type of career I will have when I am done with school, but as long as I am working with electronics I will be a happy girl.

  • As a child, I have dreamt to be either a doctor or a pharmacist in the military, and I believe HCC has been a great foundation for me to get to my destination and I can't wait to get there.

  • Alvin Community College offers a vast amount of academic opportunities and provides it at an affordable cost. There is something for every student outside of academics such as theater, Christian organizations, Student Government, Hispanic College Alliance, etc. ACC also provides assistance and information to help when students are in need for instance; scholarships, student worker jobs, catastrophic assistance and even a food pantry. In addition, ACC is involved in the community and that is important to me. #FINSUP!
