It is a great Junior College to be in, it definitely works with my work schedule and is a place I will always thank for my future academic achievements. I'm proud to be graduating with my associate's degree from this establishment and it truly prepared me for university.

Bridget - 03/02/2021

It is a good option if you want to get your core courses out of the way for less money. The school offers many free resources, but it is what it is, and it is just a community college. There is nothing spectacular about it, or anything that I find impressive about it. Other students might find it works well for them, but for me personally, it is just a cheaper option.

Naomi - 01/02/2021

I think it’s awesome.I can’t wait to attend and get the degree I want and learn more.I’m kinda nervous but then again I’m excited.

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    I wish I could go back in time and talk to myself as a high school senior. While I was in high school, I had no intention to college. During my junior and senior year I skipped and left school a lot. At the end of my senior year I thought about going to college, but I feel that choosing a college and deciding what you want to go to school for is a pretty major decision, so I decided to take a year off to decide what type of school would be best for me and what kind of career I?d like to have. I've learned from other people's experiences that college is mandatory if you want to have a good life for you and your family. If I could go back in time and talk to myself in high school I?d tell myself to make to make good decisions, not to skip school, go to college, and to do the best I possibly can to increase my chances for academic scholarships.

  3. Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

    Austin Community College is a wonderful place for several reasons, 1) So far all of my teachers have been very gracious, yet firm and capable to instruct. 2) Many of the courses offered can be transferred to Texas State and other colleges that a local would be interested in. 3) Although being a community college, it is well respected in my experience as a school and not a joke like other community colleges I have encountered. I am very pleased with where my chips have landed for the meantime.

  4. What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

    It's hard for me to think of the worst thing about my school, but the thing I have had the hardest time with is the financial aid system. Most of this is actually administered by the department of education, however each school is responsible for their own requirements as well. The way my school handles this department has not made it easy for students to discuss their options for financial aid, nor have they promoted scholarships that are available very well.

  5. What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

    The most agitating thing about my college would have to be the diversified yet solidified nature of the student body. In terms of demographic, the school has it all: old, young, foreign and native. It's beautiful to experience such a range of human being. The solidity I speak of reflects the inner person. The mindset seems to be so young. Liberation is a mere four-syllable word with no representation. Pompous as it might seem, I simply feel highly aware of this conformity. So what else is a guy to do but go to class, pay attention, and smile.

  12. Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

    My school has an exceptional photography program. We are taught with the latest technology, and the professors constantly stay abreast of changes in digital photography, as well as the image processing software that is available. I'm confident he program will truly get me ready to go out into the real world and work for myself as a photographer. Other schools I checked out simply did not offer this caliber of education - especially for a community college.

    I have been at ACC for 3.5 years (2 years of dual-credit, and a year and a half of my post-grad) and it has been nothing but a positive experience. ACC is full of wonderful, loving professors and faculty who for the most part, genuinely want you to succeed. I truly feel like I have received a quality education, and I am well prepared to transfer to a 4-year university to finish my undergraduate. This really is a college that wants to help you achieve your goals.

    poor working class kids who didn't do well in high school.
