Not everyone is ready for college right after high school. It takes some students a little while to grow into a college mindset, and they may decide to postpone college until they are ready. Liam Murath took time to gain valuable life experience through military service. Once he started attending Aims Community College, he developed a clear sense of his academic and career goals.
When Zack McCormick started at Aims Community College, he was still determining his career aspirations. Like many people beginning college, he had some possibilities in mind but needed to explore his options and interests. Then something finally clicked. After taking a political science course, he was inspired to pursue a government and international relations degree.
Going to college is a formative experience for many. For first-generation college student Jackie Estrada, attending Aims Community College encouraged her growth academically, socially and personally. Jackie’s involvement in extracurricular activities, work-study employment and classes at Aims accelerated her evolution into the woman she is today.
