By Stevi Breshears:
One thing that everyone at Amarillo College has in common is that they want to see you succeed. It’s something that I’ve become familiar with, and I feel as though I’m just getting to know AC.
No matter the length of time you spend here, whether it’s a semester, two years, or even more, you will find many people and resources dedicated to helping you reach your goals.That, I believe, is the very essence of this college. The students and faculty come together to form an exceptional community that really must be experienced to understand.
So, if there’s one piece of advice I can give you for the upcoming school year, it’s to get involved in this amazing community. It is so, so important to have friends on campus and in your classes that know what you’re going through, because they’re going through the same things and often times can offer different perspectives and advice.
One awesome way to get connected with people and things you find interesting is by joining one of the many clubs AC has to offer. There are so many clubs and organizations on campus that it would be nearly impossible not to find something that interests you. One key component in getting involved is staying informed about what’s going on around campus, which is where I come in.
Allow me to introduce myself; my name is Stevi Breshears, and I’m the editor of The Ranger. This job is a huge responsibility, but it’s also a huge honor. I have always loved the art of storytelling, and now I get to do something even better: help tell YOUR stories.
In order to do that, we need to hear from you. You can follow The Ranger online, @ACRanger on Twitter and Instagram and The Ranger on Facebook. You can also email us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org with story ideas, letters to the editor, or to let us know if you want to join the staff or contribute to the paper. My main goal for the upcoming academic year is to provide the AC community with accurate and relevant information that represents our school well, and I am so excited to do that with all of you and the rest of the Ranger staff.
On that note, welcome and best of luck. Let’s have a fantastic year, Badgers.
