AC to Assist Students Making Transition to College

“High school seniors from throughout the area will be introduced to the programs and faculty of Amarillo College at Success 360, an event designed to help students make a smooth transition to college and be successful.

Success Is AC Success 360 is Oct. 24-25 at the Amarillo Civic Center, where all the AC communities will be on display in the South Exhibit Hall.

AC has aligned its programs of study with academic communities that correspond to career endorsements supported by Texas high schools.

The College features academic communities in Business, CIS, Creative Arts, Education, Health Sciences, Industry, Liberal Arts, Public Service and STEM.

“This is an opportunity for high school seniors to see our programs and meet our faculty,” Becky Burton, dean of academic outreach and support services, said.

“We look forward to welcoming any seniors who have not yet chosen a college, as well as all those who are already planning to attend AC in 2019 but have yet to settle on a course of study or even a community,” she said. “This will help them quite a lot as they transition to the College.”

Seniors from within the Amarillo Independent School District (AISD) are scheduled to attend Success 360 – in the South Exhibit Hall – on Wednesday, Oct. 24 as follows:

9-11:30 a.m. – Caprock and Tascosa

12:30-3 p.m. – Amarillo and Palo Duro
