I was once you.  As a former community college re-entry student, good things will come if you focus on attending classes, participating in class discussions and projects, turning in your assignments on time, and bringing your individual thoughts, ideas, and questions into the classroom. If you do these things, you will gain life-long lasting benefits and contribute to making our college a springboard of opportunity for everyone.   

This is your community college. We are committed to your success. We challenge you to push yourself to achieve your goals.  Learn to love learning and along the way, let me know how you're doing by emailing: stuartvanhorn@whccd.edu
