AC represents many things to many people. It represents the future, hope and the opportunity of an education. It means all those things to me as well.
I chose AC for its locality, affordability and good reputation. I was an incoming freshman in the spring of ’12.
I was homeschooled, and I graduated at 16 with few friends and no idea what I was getting into. Starting at AC was a huge step for me.
The funny thing is, I registered late, on the last possible day and the last hour for registration. I came up to the school having no idea what to register for.
Under the list of classes, I found News Reporting and Writing 1. I registered because it said that as part of the class I would get to write stories for the paper. How cool is that?
All because of that choice, I am where I am now. My second semester at AC, I became editor of The Ranger, flew to Atlanta for a training seminar and came back ready to take the campus by storm.
I no longer am editor, but I serve on the paper as a reporter and designer – although the editor experience taught me so much and was an experience I will never forget.
AC has brought many wonderful things into my life. It has introduced me to genuine friends and inspirational teachers.
It has given me hope and a desire for education that I never had envisioned before. AC has allowed me to see the bigger picture and to see the world around me with new eyes.
I am incredibly thankful for this school, and I have enjoyed reading other students’ submissions about why you appreciate and love AC.
