  • Opening DoorsBecause of College Connection and because of Austin Community College, I have been able to make smart choices about college and my future. LBJ High School Graduate, ACC Student

    With the start that I got from College Connection and the support that I got once I arrived at ACC, I have learned a lot about what it takes to go to college. I have learned so much that I have been able to help my friends know what to do. One of my best friends is finally going to start at Austin Community College in the fall because I shared with her that if I can do it, she can do it, too. Bastrop High School Graduate, ACC Student
