Student Testimonials


 SP12 Graduation  

“My name is Christopher Hernando. I graduated in Spring 2016. My experience with SSS/TRIO was very fortunate. With the guidance and mentorship, I am able to accomplish my goals and transfer to Cal State LA. I could not have accomplished this if I did not have the encouragement and relationship built with them. Not only have I grown up during my time at LACC, but I take the valuable lessons into my future endeavors. I am very grateful to you all. Thank you so much for leading me towards my goal and unlocking my potential”

 SP12 Graduation  

“Thanks to TRIO, I am one step closer to reaching my educational goal, which is to obtain a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology at a UC. I am beyond excited to start a new chapter in my life. I acquired all the support that I needed and was able to follow an educational plan created by my counselors. Without TRIO, I know that I wouldn't have been able to complete my personal statement, stay on track with which classes to take next, or submit accurate information online. When I first stepped into LACC I did not know I would received an Associate's degree or walk across the stage. Unbelievably, it actually happened. I received three AA's in Psychology and walked the stage where my professors, friends, and family cheered me on. I'm truly blessed to have met such amazing counselors. The one-on-one counseling was something that I know I would have not received elsewhere. Words cannot express how thankful I am. TRIO was like a little secret club. Our trips to various universities were memorable. This will always be my favorite part about college."

My participation in TRIO SSS has been very advantageous in my personal and educational development. As a first generation Hispanic student with little background information on college as well as its feasibility, TRIO provided me the necessary service in order to be knowledgeable about my educational objectives. TRIO was also a great environment to distress and to goof around with other like minded peers; I still remember all the silly shenanigans we involved ourselves in when school wasn’t the focus. These minds were also a source of stability due to our common ground as undergrad students at a community college. TRIO allowed me create these bonds with these goal driven individuals.

To sum it all up, TRIO exposed to many things considered of high value in life, some were friends, nature, learning experiences, kind people and ultimately, knowledge. I graduated with an associate’s Degree in Natural Sciences and Mathematics and now I am transferring to Cal State Dominguez Hills for fall 2016. In CSUDH I will pursue my bachelor’s degree in Public Administration where I will learn the necessary skills to surf through my administrative career in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM).
