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

It is center with educated leaders who give of themselves whole heartedly without exception, so I am able to learn the necessary skills to change my qualifications, which in turn will mandate my abilities to take myself to the next level spiritually, mentally, socially, physically, monetarily, academically, and help me carry these sophisticated traits developed within me, to be a leader in my future places of employment, my community, as an American, a friend and citizen to our great nation.

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

The advice I would give to myself is to slow down and smell the roses. Take your time in deciding what your major is. It is important to continue on right out of highschool. It is ok to start with the core subjects. Do not put so much pressure on your self and study hard. The outside world will always be there. Once you leave the nest you cannot go back. Everything changes and so will you. Stay at home as long as you can. Use your senior summer to go to Europe. Take a part time job but participate in all school functions. Go to the prom, homecoming games and dances. Try to live in the present tense and be happy. If you feel out of place tell someone. Enjoy your youth and do not try to be an adult before your time. Take care of your health and stay away from smoking and drugs. Also remember we are the company we keep. It is ok to not be popular. Be true to yourself and grow spiritually by having some sort of religion in your life. Honor your father and mother, count your blessings, be respectful and say thanks!

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

There are not enough computer classes. So it is hard to get the classes that you need. The ones available have prerequisites, so it forces the student to only be able to take six credits instead of twelve. The early registration is based upon credit hours. This causes the student to have to stay in school longer and delay their career objectives. There are not enough parking spaces either. So I must get to school three hours ahead of time to park. The buses do not run near my home.

A mix of ages, ethnicity, and ideas; it's a mesh of many different people with different backgrounds in one room.

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

Study hard, college is very different from high school teachers will not provide many oppurtunities to make the grade you want as they do in high school. Take every chance and opputunity they give you and give 110% and if you have a day where class is optional, show. Prove to teachers your not waisting there time because your parents are making you attend school or because you have nothing else to do. Show your heart and dedication because then there more likely to invest time in you and give as much help as they possibly can. Also, don't be afraid to ask questions more than likely someone else is thinking the question too but they're to scared to ask. Be proud of who you are and what you accomplish and you CAN make it with determination and drive; even if your not top in your class you can get through.

What's unique about your campus?

The campus locations are spread out so you can find a campus near you no matter where you live. They also provide so many resources, testing facilities, advisors, financial aide, etc. You really feel like they're all there to work for you and provide the best college experience whether your transferring or just getting your associates.

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

The best advice I would give my self is to put school as number one priority, friends and activitys second. I would tell my self to take more honnors classes to better prepare my self. I would say to take class more seriously, do all my assingments with learing in mind not just "winging it" . I would have tooken my SATs more seriously and studied before I took the test. Most importantly I would keep my parents involved and not try to "keep them in the dark" when it came to school work, and I would take every piece of advice they ever tried to give me. Because now I know they have already been there done that.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frustrating thing would be that I cannnot get a four year degree for nursing there, I have to transfer

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

If i could go back in time and talk to myself as a high school senior the advice i would give myself was to prepare more for college, because when i was a senior i was undecided to my career goals. Now that i know how college is I think what i could have done better and that is gone directly to a university instead of community college, but what stop me was not knowing my major. When i first went to the community college i was still undecided but i was only taking basic classes and was thinking of one major to another, wasting my time and money. My advice would be first, prepare for what major i want and that i would like and prepare myself to get the best job , second, decide what university or college i want to go and third getting help with financial aid.Today im preparing to get my associate degree and know my major, by now i know that i could have finished my degree by now and have started a job, but that hasn't stop me from getting what i want and that is a better education for my future.

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

The worst thing i could consider about my school is there are few parking spaces, in my school we have parking garage and even if there is a parking space i have to park at the last parking spot there is, and the reason is the worst is we have to walk a lot to your classroom and back to your car. Another thing I thought could be the worst thing is the date the teachers put the exams the exact same date and we have to study alot.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

It is difficult to look back now, but I do wish that there was more support in the public schools to encourage children to persue a college education. I am the only one out of four siblings that is atending college at the moment and it is because of self-motivation. I wish I knew that there are more options as far as scholarships are concerned.

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

The worst thing about my school is that I can not attend as much as I wish. Having a full time job and going to school is something that is not uncommon, but only those who are disciplined enough are able to succeed.

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

I would tell myself that college is completely different that what we are "trained" for in high school. As a 33 year old college student, I've learned that I took high school for granted. In college, I actually have to work for my grade, and there is no one to baby you. I'd also be sure to save money and tell myself whatever I do, try not to get yourself into debt.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about my school are the small classes, easy access to classes, and the instructors. Austin Community College has one of the best educational systems in the United States.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

How reasonable tuition is and how many campuses there are.
