RYAN'S STORY

Granada High School | Las Positas College

I wanted to continue swimming at a higher level in hopes to go to a four year as an athlete. I did not like or feel committed to the few colleges I got into out of high school.

Community college gave me the opportunity to feel out my passions, strive for something that I didn’t think I could have ever done in high school both academically (getting to a UC) and athletically (swimming and reaching a happy and full potential).

BENEFIT

Academic counseling services helped so much! Make sure to take advantage of the resources and the reassurance that school serves can provide.

WHY ARE YOU SHARING?

I think people have a negative view about community college, and I want to be an example of how community college can/ does work. You can become excellent in more than one aspect of your life with the opportunity and flexibility community college provides.

SOMETHING I WISH I KNEW BEFORE I STARTED...

I wish I knew about the honors program and a few of the clubs at my community college before I started so I could start/join my first year rather than second and final year. Do your research!
