Travis ECHS Student Featured in University Brochure

A Travis Early College High School graduate is currently featured in a recruitment brochure for the University of Rochester. Nancy Vargas, a freshman at the University of Rochester, is featured on page 12 of the brochure. In her short description of her time at Rochester, she says she has always liked technology and wanted to know how things worked. That is what led her to pursue Electrical and Computer Engineering at Rochester. At Rochester, she says she is learning everything from programming to circuits and even built an amplifier during her first semester. She has had the opportunity to explore other interests such as taking an anthropology class on Latin American Immigration. This has led her to want to take more anthropology classes and furthered her interests in cinematography and photography to hopefully do a documentary about Mexican-Americans. 

Vargas said she is grateful for the opportunities she has had at Rochester; she has been able to connect with people and has learned a lot about different cultures. Ray Hernandez, Director of Early College Programs at SAC, said, “Having Vargas featured in a recruitment brochure, is proof that we are doing incredible things at SAC and are placing our own stamp in higher education.”
