“I have everything that I need here at my house and can get the same quality education, here at home.”
Andriana Garrido, a math/computer science student, is taking advantage of all the resources HACC has to offer. Andriana said she has not had an easy road, but the challenges have made her “much more appreciative of where I am and how far I have come.” She does not have support from family, and is the first in her household to go to college.
One thing she loves – accessing her classes from home. She said, “HACC has made my life better by providing quality education that I can carry with me anywhere I go. I take many online classes and this has been convenient for me and my circumstances. I don’t have to get in the car and drive and sit in a classroom. I have everything that I need here at my house and can get the same quality education, here at home.”
HACC advisors are also available to students no matter where they are. Andriana described her meetings with advisors as “such an incredible process.” She added, “I felt at ease and I felt confident knowing that I had an academic plan. Meeting with an advisor was also great because it felt like I had a supporter and someone that wanted me to reach my educational goals.”
After graduating from HACC, Andriana plans to attend Millersville University to get a bachelor’s degree in computer science.
